Karen Fleschler

Watercolor

“I’m a watercolorist whose style is very textural. I love the challenge of painting wood, rocks and buildings. My paintings are very colorful, and I try to infuse a contrast of light and dark in my compositions.”

“Watercolor allows me to be creative in my process of paint application from bright, loose underpainting to tight, textural brush strokes for the final layer. I paint memories of places I have seen that evoke the senses so that the viewer is also ‘n the moment.’ Hopefully, I have been successful in capturing the essence of the various places and subjects that I have chosen to paint.”

“A native of the California Bay Area, I graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Social Science, and also earned a post-graduate teaching credential. After a long hiatus from high school art classes, I resumed drawing and painting classes at local community colleges and studied under local artists.”
