KAREN PANNABECKER, ARTIST
I've always loved creating things but didn't discover painting until I was 54, when I painted a bird on a table I had built. Since then painting has become an obsession and I wonder why it took me so long to explore the wonderful world of paint.
My impressionistic style resembles my life on our farm: rich with texture and color, at times a bit chaotic with serendipitous strokes that may appear to have jumped the fence. My goal with each painting is to portray a scene or object, not as it would be seen in a photo, but with added character or whimsy: an amalgam of reality and my imagination.
