This is a painting from Karen Lynn’s series of architectural paintings.

“I love sun, heat and tropical colours and in this painting I wanted to portray these bright colours against the pink of the mountains. I have painted in my style the desert gardens of a Palm Springs house with exaggerated colours which are my trademark. Desert flowers and palm trees are featured frequently in my paintings as I am fascinated by all plant life. I am attracted by modernism and in fact anything that relates to the fifties and glamour. The freesia coloured door against the greens of the cactus plants give this painting a unique look.”

Size: H:100 cm x W:100 cm

Discover original architectural paintings online with Wychwood Art and in our Oxfordshire art gallery by artist Karen Lynn. Karen Lynn is an increasingly collectable figurative artist whose work is inspired by the glamour and appeal of the 40's, 50's and 60's; an era that Christian Dior described as the 'Golden Age' of fashion. Stylistically, Lynn's work has been compared to Hopper and Hockney. Initially training as a fashion designer, Lynn worked as a costumier for the English National Opera before successfully switching into set design, working for many years on a number of iconic feature films, before moving into television and commercials. In 2001, Lynn turned her attentions to painting in oils. Her wide experience of designing for film, television and theatre provides her with a unique and contemporary viewpoint; not surprisingly, her work has been snapped up by collectors both here and in the US. Lynn's detailed drawing is complemented by the use of bold strokes, often consisting of colourful and varied characters.
