Description This is a print of the original painting which is an oil painting on steel with white rust. This is the third painting in the Rubber People series. Midge is a strong independent woman. She has many adventures ahead of her. Im not sure if shes single in this painting, but it doesnt matter. She knows who she is! After peeling down the entire onion of Karen Ann Jones, what I found was Karen the painter. The same person I was when I was 5. I never changed, I only left who I was for a while. I paint because that is who I am. Being my most authentic me is my true integrity. My goal in my work is to express my optimistic, happy, in love with life, quirky, deep, intimate and passionate perspective of life. I choose my painting by recreating a visual of the feelings I am having at that moment. I get to spend personal time with that passionate feeling that I long to experience. This is probably why I dont paint a painting in one day. I want to linger in that relationship.
