The ‘Inspiring Destinations’ exhibition is finished now, but it was viewed by thousands of visitors to Filoli garden. I received so many wonderful comments, it was awesome. An artist could not expect more. Many of the paintings have been purchased, but there are many more still available, and remain at the very special prices which can still be found on this page: http://jannpollard.com/karen-brown-guides-paintings/
I am heading for Italy in a week to teach painting in Tuscany at Villa Nobile and in Lake Como. I plan to return with many new inspirations from which to paint. You can follow along vicariously with the photos I will be posting at these links:

For those in North Carolina, don’t miss that I was one of 12 artist’s selected for Providence Gallery’s Holiday Show in Charlotte. My artwork was featured on their advertising. View the artwork on this 2012 Artwork Collection.
Golden Paints Color Mixing
Golden Paints has put online color images of many of its paints and have created a way to visually see what happens when you mix 2 or 3 together in various proportions. I could spend a good part of my day here, playing and learning about color.
For students and others, too, there is a great little exercise online about testing your vision of colors and values. Give it a try – it’s fun!
I have just put up some photos from the most recent Holiday Painting Art Workshop in Tuscany. We stayed in this fabulous villa, Villa Nobile where we could paint in an art studio, toured the fabulous area near Cortona, and dined on some amazing Tuscan food.
