Champagne Creek by Karen Ilari

11X14 Acrylic on Canvas. I was out painting one day and came across this peaceful little scene.

From the first moment I picked up a brush I was captivated! I only put down my brush when I’m forced to! I also make demo videos and host my online teaching website. I’ve lived in beautiful Oregon for the last few years. First in Southern Oregon where the stunning landscape converted me almost entirely to landscape painting. Now I live and paint in Portland and have fallen in love with the history, energy and people of this beautiful city.

    And what you did with it brings peace to me! This is my kind of place, and a beautiful rendition of that absolute calmness that prevails in the quiet spots of nature. So well-composed, and you have treated the nearness and the distance and the darks and the lights so competently. I find this painting extremely beautiful. Could look at it every single day.

  • Thank you so much Gregory! Very kind of you!
