Romantic Textured Paintings of Couples Walking Together

California-based artist Karen Tarlton’s colorful paintings whisk us away into her romantic scenes of couples lovingly walking along tree-lined paths. Similar to the technique of painter Leonid Afremov, Tarlton uses a palette knife to produce her stunningly textured creations full of life. Each painting is energized by her multihued color palette and further stylized by the artist’s skilled ability to realize each of her unique visions.

Common themes that can be found in Tarlton’s work are nature, rain, and romantic city nights. There is a recurring silhouette of a couple walking side-by-side throughout her portfolio. They walk together, rain or shine, down an infinite path as though their love is eternal and nothing could ruin the moment. The artist draws her landscapes and moods from her personal experiences as a military wife of 23 years, traveling all across the world with her husband.

Each painting is a one-of-a-kind and can be purchased through Tarlton’s Etsy shop.
