First Friday Raffles - Win a Painting!

What could be more beautiful than the natural world in its natural pose.  I am truly moved by what exists around us in nature.  To me – to render an embrace of nature’s splendor is a joy to share forever.
I spend a great deal of time outdoors in nature’s “world” connecting with, absorbing and feeling that which exists, lives intently and evolves naturally.  All this, unpretentious and real, is the catalyst for my inspiration to paint!  I have a compelling need to share this inspiration with others by relating my work through creativity, technique and medium, to bridge the space between our “everyday existence” and the pleasures of nature.

Patti Kraft Creations

Each basket is individually created using local Palm Sheaths and plant material
One-of-a-kind basket goes through a 11 step process, over a week, before a hand-rubbed finish is applied. Baskets may be used alone as decorative pieces or as containers for dried or silk plants. Shorter baskets might be used for magazines, mail and hand towels. Only those signed “PJ Kraft” on the base are genuine Patti Kraft creations

From the special quality of light at dawn and dusk to the exciting sparkle of water at midday -- Karen’s subject is always “all about the light”. Her medium is oil and her approach to painting is alla prima, or wet on wet paint, to show visible brush strokes. Her experience painting out on location in the US and abroad has helped keep her work fresh, showing light that bounces off the surfaces of her impressionist paintings.
