Karen Noles

Karen Noles - Kindred Spirits
As Coxsoft Art is being truly ecological lately, thanks to the influence of Chelsea, now is the time to mention the award-winning art of Karen Noles. She paints charming portraits of Amerindian girls wearing native costumes. Romanticizing the past? Raising awareness in the present? Whatever, here's an artist. Click the title link to view Karen's gallery of Native American People.

How lovely. I especially like, "Wind Whispers" and "Salish Maiden". Beautiful light and warmth. Love the umbrella detail in "Autumn Shade" and the light in "Salish Serenity". Oh, there are so many more!

Glad you like her work. She's a lovely artist, and her use of natural light is superb: look at the backlighting of the example I posted. Beautiful. I had one of her paintings on my PC as wallpaper for about a year, until it was so familar to me that I wasn't "seeing" it any more.

Yes, you're right about the backlight, it's a very beautiful portrait. She's very skilled.
I know what you mean about not "seeing" it anymore, it's like when you hear a song often enough, it doesn't sound the same as when you first heard it.

The technical name for it is "habituating". You can habituate to anything, even pain, so long as the stimulus remains constant. Listen to a familar piece of music at a concert and, if one of performers hits a bum note, boy, you'll notice it!
