Karen Doyle paints to express the intense feelings she gets from looking at ordinary beauty – the trees in all the seasons. Her oil paintings are filled with juicy color and texture.

“A FINE LINE” an exhibition of representational and non-representational works of art. Working with different media the selected artists experiment with linear mark making in its widest sense. Each artist produced works inspired by places and spaces in the natural environment.
Featuring regional artists: Sharon Abbott-Furze, Bill Baily, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, Karen Doyle, Bob Kroll, Linda Fenton-Mendenhall, Carolyn Lindberg, Emily Miller, Christine Trexel, and Russell J. Young.
“What do you anticipate? I anticipate the coming season, cooler crisper air, fog and bare trees. A Fine Line pulls me into the images of trees with their delicate branches and handsome trunks. The details of their bark, the veins of their leaves, their fine lines that emerge with fall season, they reveal themselves and that is when I believe they are the most beautiful.” Karen Doyle

“I am a colorist, so monotone lines are pretty unusual for me! See you on the 5th of October.” Karen
