Morning Light
impressionist acrylic painting: still life interior with antique chair, book, flowers and sunlight through window • post-impressionist style illustration • original art for published illustration by collected Louisiana artist and illustrator


Morning Light  © 2009 by Karen Mathison Schmidt
20 x 16 inches • acrylic on archival, museum-quality GessobordTM

private collection • Puyallup, Washington

This original painting was the illustration for one of my step-by-step demos in UK author/artist Gill Barron’s Acrylic Secrets book, distributed in the US by Reader’s Digest Books. I’ve decided it’s time to send it out into the world, but don’t worry about me ... I love it so much that I’ve already made a canvas print of it to keep for my very own.
