My art is a business of the heart. My creations are a life force as it bubbles with brilliant color and emotional energy dances across the soul. Its lush hues bathe your spirit with energy and serenity. My paintings make a living space joyful and exuberant, calm and meditative. Mine is a creative beauty quest of color, form, texture and design, as they unite synergistically and make the spirit soar!
When I saw Karen Friedland’s work, I looked at it and said, “it’s JAZZY” and as a jazz musician, I want that and I just bought it- BOOM! -like that! The colors have a lot going on like in jazz where there are a lot of layers and that’s what I see going on here. It makes me feel happy. It’s great, it’s FUN!
When Karen Friedland’s paintings are in a room, they are like a blast of sunshine!
Karen’s work is like her personality and her lovely home: colorful, vibrant and reflective of a true love of life!
If you haven’t seen Karen Friedland’s art, you’re missing wild, beautiful, imaginative painting!
I love the palette and I love the whimsical nature of the two paintings I bought. The one with the fellow sitting down-I love the pattern, I love the wallpaper, [the figure in the painting] looks so happy. It makes me smile. They are happy, they are happy pictures, And, of course, the wonderful colors. Look, look at them—this is a GREAT PICTURE!
You were going to Italy and I said it would be great if you would paint something from that trip for me. And you painted my picture—a typical stairway in Capri and the Amalfi coast—I knew you did it with me in mind, just for ME. It brings me back to the streets of Capri, the peacefulness of vacation. I love how charming it is, joyful and playful!
Color, energy and movement are my zest for life.
