"Wild Hibiscus" by Karla Nolan, palette knife oil painting on canvas

I saw this flower in Hawaii a number of years ago on the Road to Hana. This road is a very famous one, curvy, twisty, up and down, lots of loops and switchbacks -- I should call it the road to getting carsick, as I did! Anyway....this wild hibiscus beckoned to me, flirting with my camera, come and take my photograph! I obliged the dear plant, positioned myself in the best manner possible, and promptly fell upon my tush into mud! What we artists do in the name of "art"!

"Wild Hibiscus", 12"x9" unframed palette knife oil painting on canvas panel, $215 includes s&h in N. America, Paypal preferred, click button below or write me for more information at and thank you for looking!

Being inspired byJ.M.W. Turner, Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Cezanne Karla Nolan is an amazing artist. She paints to capture treasured moments, for serenity and solace, to produce bright colorful pleasing artwork. I love her paintings that she produces on glass . Inspired by an Italian master, she recreates such beauty on glass: the smooth surface, the transparency of the glass, the sheen, and glimmer shows through each painting. You must have to be a very patience artist to produce work on glass. Being an artist myself I don’t know if I would have the patience to work on glass but I would love to give it a try and see what I can produce. Her other work is just as beautiful. She paints from nature and finds beauty in everything she paints. It is so nice to see an artist that finds beauty in this world and paints it. Sometimes we need to stop and smell the roses and appreciate what nature has given us.
