Description 'The Light In His Eyes'18 x 24 inchesOil on canvascopyright October 2005I challenged myself to be able to 'see colors' from nothing. I used a black and white reference photograph of Ray Charles taken by Linda McCartney. I liked this image because you can see the piano keys reflected in his glasses. That's where the title of my portrait comes from.
Karen Yee, El Segundo Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Karen Yee was born into an artistic environment. Her mother painted with oils when Karen was a small child, and through her mother's passion, was surrounded by fine art. Karen has explored several types of artistic expression, but she didn't discover the joy of painting with oils herself until much later in life, now one of her favorite mediums, along with acrylics. Her art has won many awards at juried exhibitions, and she is garnering recognition and acclaim. The main themes of her art focus on the joy of her family and her love of music, yet her style is ever developing.
Ms. Yee lives in El Segundo with her husband and two daughters. She is a member of the El Segundo Art Association , the Palos Verdes Art Center, the Redondo Beach Art Group and a board member for the Torrance Artists' Guild.
