"I love the palette and I love the whimsical nature of the two paintings I bought. It makes me smile. They are happy pictures, And, of course, the wonderful colors. Look, look at them—this is a GREAT PICTURE!"
"When Karen Friedland’s paintings are in a room, they are like a blast of sunshine!"
"With little , I mean NO, painting experience, Karen helped me find my creative voice when I could not find it on my own. I love Karen's classes because she teaches students to love their work. She provides a fun, kind, embarrassment-free space to let your creative passion run wild! It's a good sign when you don't want a class to be over, and can't wait for the next one."
- Laura Gates
