Tara Keating Fine Arts

The Hero, Mixed Media on Panel, 8x 10 inches (sold, prints available)

I am inspired by color, beauty and light in the world around me. Although I live in an urban environment, nature is everywhere and it charms me. I paint many subjects, from small intimate portraits of pets to larger works such as floral still lifes and full body portraits. Inanimate objects fascinate me with their immediacy and my garden inspires me, year-round. I enjoy the process of creating and manipulating paint on the surface of canvas and panels and am delighted to share my work with you.

Self-portrait, detail, colored pencil on paper
