Welcome to the creative collaboration of Karen Blanchet. Collaboration involves two or more participants. Working together with the promptings of the Holy Spirit she weaves images and words into entrancing places of contemplation. As a result many view her work as peaceful or joyful.
In addition to paint, crafting with words enhances the visual treat Karen wishes to offer. Poetry, images and those who wish to participate, set out as companions on a journey into light and beauty. Hence a poem, written especially for each piece, embellishes every neomosaic painting. Written in felt pen along the stems and cracks the poetry winks at curious eyes willing to search for it. Metallic pen offers a biblical quote glimpsing in and out of view enmeshed with the image. Subtle, inviting.
Beginning with a chaos of texture and flowing paint in drips and drops, Karen echoes all of creation. The random chaotic start evolves into works of wonder and beauty, much like creation itself. She has accepted the invitation extended to everyone: to co-create. And so we are all co-creators as we work together to manifest heaven on earth.
