A few weeks ago Los Gatos held an artists open studio event. I managed to completely ignore it until I called around at a friend's house to discover that she was participating. I knew Karen was an artist - but had not really seen much of her work up to now.
Anyway - to cut a long story short a painting came home with me and is installed in it's new home.
It looks fabulous! The artist is Karen Ehlers and she exhibits in San Jose on a fairly regular basis.
