“It is a thrill to complete an artwork, of any kind, but to head outside with paint gear, a hat and a goal to finish a painting in the field within a few hours? Now, that’s exhilaration!” Having always had an artistic career in the commercial realm, Karen Bakke is living her lifelong dream as an award-winning full-time fine artist, predominantly painting En Plein Air. Her plein air paintings are strong on their own, but have the crucial benefits of enhancing larger artwork in the studio. With her “Go get ’em!” attitude, Karen strives to create vibrant, captivating realistic and impressionistic art. She is the president of Plein Air Washington Artists, as well as a part-time member of two other local plein air groups. Karen Bakke resides in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, known as the “Gateway to the North Cascades”.
