Mixing my new turquoise paint with molding paste for my next project. Love, love, loving this color!!!!
Remember that hideously pink painting I posted a while ago? (If not, you can see it in all its pinkness here: http://karinkohlmeier.com/2013/08/pink-base-layer-for-my-next-multi-layer-painting/) Not that I have anything against the color pink per se…but seriously, wow–that was BRIGHT!

I’ve been wanting to find a way to photograph my paintings “in context” so that people looking at them online can get an accurate sense of their size.

Layer #1 of my next multi-layer painting. Yes, it’s Barbie Pink now…but just wait.

I’m working on a painting that will be made up of multiple layers of poured paint. Here are the first two layers. I’m having SO much fun with it already!
Yes, there is a painting in there somewhere. I’ve been doing a lot of paintings in which the paint is poured onto the canvas and dripped or swirled, so they have to dry flat. The first (and last) time I left one on my table to dry overnight turned into a bit of a debacle…to […]
I wanted to share a painting I just completed. It’s a 16 x 20″ acrylic on canvas. I experimented with a variety of new (to me) techniques. It didn’t turn out AT ALL how I expected–but I like it even more than what I meant to do! And here are a few close-ups so you […]
A huge (and belated) thank you to my dear friend Ian Hemingway from Retrograde Amnesia Fine Art for creating these beautiful labels for the note card sets I sold at the Astoria Market last weekend! He’s an amazing artist. You should definitely check him out! (Click on both of the blue links above. You can also Like him […]
