This painting is part of the “Two Views” series and is painted using layer upon layer of paint on paper. The layers are lifted, scrubbed, and scraped, added and subtracted. They look great mounted on dark or light linen and put in a simple black frame.
This painting is part of the Cocktails and Jazz series and reminds me of the nightlife of New York. It is acrylic on canvas with bold strokes of watercolor crayon for accent. This is a fun and expressive way to paint.
This is also part of the Cocktails and Jazz series and is even titled “Nightlife”. I used acrylic paint on canvas and drew in bold strokes of watercolor pencil for accent. I love the warm pinks and oranges, this painting is filled with energetic fun!
This easy to wear bezel-set and pave-set diamond ring was a recycle/restyle project. My client inherited a ring that had two of the diamonds and some smaller diamonds, so that meant I needed to supply just one to match, and a few more small diamonds. I gave her credit for her gold and we made this gorgeous platinum ring for her. It has a squared-off back for extra comfort....
Color in my art has always been an expression ofwho I am. My passion is working with people, and finding their true colors and creating jewelry and art that defines their personality.
Karen Bandy has been involved in art since her Portland, Oregon childhood. She drew a lot and strung love beads in the 60’s and aggravated her mother playing in the wax of burning candles, fashioning miniature sculptures.
