Painting studio, Karen Lewis 2022.

I have been painting for seven decades and will be showing a selection of my work from all seven at my open studio on Saturday March 12, 2022 in Ojai.

This last summer I created a  series of paintings inspired by my husband’s memorial bouquets; in the fall, my weekly trips to the local farmers’ market inspired a small series of gnarly produce. 

In January, a visit from my daughter, Arden, inspired my return to portraiture, and, the brand new, barely-dry “Portrait of Arden” is included in Saturday’s exhibition! 

I am planning to stay with portraiture for a while and am seriously eyeing the men in in the family!  Though I’ve painted them as children, they’ve kept growing.

Come see my work on March 12, 2022.
