Rubbing Elbows with Nature.. Walking Oakville's Beautiful Trails

I love my new form of Exercise!!
For many years I was a avid Jazzerciser.. I found as I aged,
the moves were a little to much for my poor old knees and it was time to find a new routine.
My daughter told me about this great ap called "Map My Walk"
I WAS HOOKED!
I love so many things about walking my beautiful walking route.
It takes me through many types of terrain. 
I go past community gardens, through thick brush, past a large open field,
a dog park,  a children's play park and a sweet view of the lake.
The best part of my new love is brushing elbows with nature..
I listen to may favorite tunes.. 
So far I have for sure helped baby robins to fly..
( they run in front of me in a frenzy until they jump jump and fly)
Seen dozens of baby bunnies,
Collected beautiful feathers,
Been caught in a downpour,
Smelled cascading flowers in the morning,

Mother Killdeer doing the fake broken wing trick for me...

 I am no longer trapped in a tight room rubbing elbows with other women jumping up and down.. 
I walk right out my front door, get fresh air,
sunshine on my face, sweet smells in the air, 
BUT THE BEST PART BY FAR
is rubbing elbows with Nature!!!!

Beautiful Bouquet Bicycles and Childhood Memories...

This is such a pretty sight..they stop me in my tracks..
I have to take pictures of Bicycles and Flowers...
This is the start of my photo collection.
There is something so attractive .. maybe the peaceful
freedom and childhood memories of  
picking flowers and riding a bike...
My Dad told me many times 
how I used to pick flowers  
as a child and sell them on my bike..

♕A Box A Box ☐☐☐ My Kingdom for A Box!!! ♕A Shipping Story


So very many times, when I sell a painting
I have to go on the hunt..
the hunt for the perfect box to ship my creation.
I used to hunt for the perfect size.. the right dimensions..
That was before I learned how to make a perfect box!
Again I found my self without a box..
I finally went on the ULINE site
and ordered a bundle of boxes!!


This has changed my shipping anxiety!!
I just make the right box!
Cuts down on shipping costs too!

It is great to come across other artists that yearn
to get together to paint.
Painting along with other artists is such a treat!
We have decided to get together regularly,

coffee discussions, video viewings..
I can't wait to see them again!!

Question:

Karen, What makes one of your Art Plaques or Paintings different?

Answer:
My Art Plaque's and Paintings are More than a painting!
Each one starts by being carved in a special plaster that I concoct..
I then paint with glorious color to complete the art piece..
Each piece has ridges and valleys the paint settles in
leaving a beautiful piece
you want to See and Touch!!

Question:
How long have you been creating these pieces?

Answer:
I have been a faux-finish artist since 1993..
So I have always dabbled with plaster and textures..
I love to create as well as paint ..
so I married the two in around 2002 when I moved out east.

Question:
Do you do different themes and sizes of this art?

Answer:
Yes, I can create any type of theme.. travel, food, fantasy, landscape, portrait..
just about anything.. it all looks fab... About any size too..

Question:
Can I commission a favorite photo to be one of your Art Plaques or Paintings?

Answer:
By all means!! If you like my whimsical style..
I can create a wonderful bas relief carved piece of art for you!!
Just contact me!!

Question:
What is the difference between an Art Plaque and a Painting?


Answer:
I create my Art Plaques on a special foam-board that make
them look chunky and light weight.
If you rather a painting on canvas to frame..
I can do that too!!
