Abide oil on linen 9×12 by Karen Doyle

 
The sea endures, it remains stable yet it churns and shifts and constantly changes. The sea abides by its own rules the rhythm of nature and time. 
 
This piece shows mountains reflecting into water and a golden sand. It is mystical, an elevation, the golden sand and surf reflected.”  Karen Doyle, artist

“Gardener’s Delight” oil impasto by Karen Doyle

I paint oil on panel, en Plein Air (outdoors) and in my home studio, I create luminous, impressionist landscapes of Oregon. I paint with palette knife and brush, often beginning with a few pencil lines to mark out my chosen composition, then blocking in large areas of color with a brush.  As the composition unfolds, I build up buttery, thick impasto layers with a palette knife, often scraping up piles of paint from my palette to create new colors with each swipe of the knife.  My impressionist landscapes reflect the intense feelings I get from observing the ordinary beauty that surrounds me everyday.  

I attended UC San Diego and studied a variety of  subjects in the arts and sciences, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and minors in Visual Arts and Philosophy.  Off to graduate school I went, to pursue a PhD in Social Psychology.  I moved to the Pacific Northwest and  began pursuing my goal of becoming a working artist.  I studied life drawing at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts, and enrolled in the Museum School (now the Pacific Northwest College of Art, or PNCA) to pursue a Certificate in Fine Art.  Simultaneously, I began my career at Nike, where I have now worked for over 27 years.  

When Covid shut down events, workshops and conventions, I needed to rethink my involvement, and I chose to focus on local engagement.  I  refreshed my membership with the American Psychological Association, a discipline which continues to be a source of passion and fulfillment for me.”  Karen Doyle

End grace note Spring 2021… “Daughters are wearing masks while performing live. I’m pleased with the cautious and data-driven approach that Oregon has taken.  Gradually, a new normal emerges.  It changes daily, however.  We are not in control, the virus is.”  Karen Doyle
