Inspired by J.M.W. Turner, Georgia O'Keefe, Massimo Cruciani, Edgar Degas and many others, I am pleased to be an artist painting in oils (palette knife and brush), soft pastels, paintings on glass and now watercolors. My landscapes are driven by my travel memories. My flowers are inspired by the actual thing -- I once had a pressed and dried flower business. And my skies -- my hero is Turner. What more can I say?
My motto: "Life is short, use color!" I hope you enjoy my show.

"Yellow Boat Waiting, Venice, Italy" by Karla Nolan, palette knife, brush, oil painting
Walking down a flight of stairs and then directly outdoors from the bed and breakfast in Venice, there was a small canal -- not like the Grand Canal where the vaporettos run (like buses on water) -- just a small side street, if you will. Here floated a small yellow boat, next to an old red brick building, under the red geraniums, waiting, waiting, waiting for its owner to take it further out onto the water -- maybe owner would be planning to pick up some groceries, get to work, meet up with friends? I'll never know, but it was a Venetian sort of comfort to see this yellow vehicle ready for the day....
"Yellow Boat Waiting, Venice, Italy", 8"x6" miniature oil painting on canvas, $95 includes s/h in the continental U.S.
