Here I am, world!
Contemporary & Abstract Artist, Karen Lipman
“When a painting draws you in and demands a second look, that to me is magic. Exciting fine art has an energy, a mood. It entices you to imagine or shines a light on an ordinary item and makes it seem extraordinary. I don’t want you to just see something unique when viewing my artwork, I want you to experience something unique!”
As you glance through Lipman Art Gallery, you can visualize how my work can add intrigue and a spark of inspiration to your personal home or office. Daring color choices and strong brush strokes imply movement and are extremely fun to experiment with day by day. It’s the best job in the world! When I get stuck and it happens, I rely on my faith to guide my process while painting. I say the word trust quietly to myself and even aloud to snap me out of it. For me, it requires faith to be an artist and by saying the word trust, I mentally relax. This allows me to move forward with more confidence and permission to try, explore, loosen up and trust that important work it under way. a simple mantra of repeating that word reminds me that I am not in complete control of my art and that is exactly how I want it to be. God made me artsy and He has lead me on my personal journey and so, I can do this!
My first memory of wanting to create was playing teacher in my basement. I loved drawing on the blackboard with an eraser close in hand. I continue to passionately dive head first into my creations using a wide variety of mediums. I enjoy acrylics, pastels, watercolors, and digital art, just to name a few. Working from my art studio/gallery at The Loveland Artists Studios On Main Street and also from my basement studio in Mason, Ohio is a dream come true. It has been over several decades since I knew I was meant to be creative. That is why today I am driven by the excitement of sharing my work with the world. I have been a reluctant closet artist for years; not confident that what I created would be seen favorably by fellow artists who I greatly respect. But I am sure the time right for me to trust my instincts. As my husband says, “Don’t let the music die within me.”
As a true art lover, I have also become an art curator of retro and vintage artwork and I want to share this link to my Etsy shop. www.etsy.com/shop/vintagebyviola.com
