HOUSTON, TX, December 18, 2017 - / - Award winning artist Karen Landrigan announced today that her painting “Breathing” has been selected by the jurors for the National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) Fall International Online Exhibition. “Breathing" is one of a series she calls “I have something to say…”.
Landrigan has had a spectacular rise in the art world. Beginning three years ago when she decided at the age of 53 to paint full time, Landrigan’s ability to capture emotion in a brush stroke has resulted in her receiving more than a dozen international awards and recognitions over the past few years.
Only 150 paintings from a worldwide total of 930 submissions were selected for the NOAPS Online Exhibition. Landrigan has continued to impress the public and art critics with her ability to connect on a unique emotional level.
“Breathing is my most personal piece of work,” said Landrigan, “It is the painting I’m most connected to. It is such an honor to be a part of the exhibit.”
The entire list of exhibitors and the accepted artwork images are available for viewing be viewable in the 2017 Fall International Online Exhibition on www.noaps.org.
“I am going to pause at the end of the year,” said Landrigan, “I need some time to reflect and enjoy the everyday things. Of course I will paint again, because I can’t stop anyway.”
“A rest always brings a refreshed perspective.” Landrigan said “and ultimately painting is like breathing to me. Really I am sitting back and in awe about how I have landed in and amongst some of the finest painters in the global world of art. I need time to recharge”.
Newfoundland born, Landrigan lives and creates her art in Houston, Texas. Landrigan is a designer, innovator, metalsmith and painter with 30 years of experience.
