Today @fraveris shared one of my favourite contemporary artists! Here’s her Country Garden:

Her collection is available for purchase on paper and canvas on McGaw Graphics. The site describes her technique that I find so compelling:

Working in oils and acrylics on gessoed hardboard, Karen uses both brushes and painting knives to build up glazes of transparent color, finishing with layers of opaque color painted loosely so that the vivid first layers show through in places; the end result often reminds the viewer of stained glass.
