now available for purchase

SOLD

Birdwatching © 2011 Karen Mathison Schmidt
18 x 24 • acrylic on 3/4" cradled Gessobord

private collection • Stamford, Connecticut


I’m honored to be one of several contributing artists in a book on painting techniques by UK author/artist Gill Barron. Several of my finished paintings are used as illustrations; I’ve decided to make my ORIGINAL “Birdwatching” tabby cat painting, which is one of two multi-page step-by-step projects I have in the book, available for purchase in my eBay store.

The step-by-step demo for this painting, along with a full-page image of the finished piece, appear in the book, entitled Acrylic Secrets: 300 Tips and Techniques for Painting the Easy Way, distributed by Reader’s Digest world-wide. You can find a link to the book on Amazon in the sidebar to the right.

I just received an email a couple of days ago from an artist in Barcelona, Spain, who contacted me after she saw my illustrations in the book, which she had checked out of her local library ... just one of the many friendly people I have met through my art. What fun!
