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.

"Lobelia in Terra Cotta, Yemin Moshe, Jerusalem" by Karla Nolan
Back to Jerusalem in May. Yemin Moshe is the section of the city in which we stayed and it's a floral paradise, especially in the spring before it becomes very hot. I walked around, camera in hand, ready to document all of the beautiful foliage I saw. Lobelia tend to attract me, especially, probably due to the range of colors available and I saw all the hues there were! The old stones on the walkways and the exterior of the dwellings only added to the lush effect. The people living in this area take great pride in their container gardens and olive trees and bougainvillea also abound. Avissar House, our studio apartment for the better part of a week, is a seven minute walk to Jaffa Gate and I would truly urge you to make the trip to this historic part of the world!
