This is absolutely gorgeous. It feels like early morning light on an empty room -very peaceful.

(following: your recent comment over at 333) - Thanks back for all your paintings, Karen! They always brighten up my coffee-time when they appear in my Reader thingy. I don't recall how I came across your blog, but it's been and continues to be a pleasure. You are a hard-working artist - we're all lucky to have the opportunity to enjoy your work out here.

Absolutely gorgeous, Karen!! Great job with the light and reflections in the floor. There is so much to enjoy in this painting. I feel as though I could walk in and sit at the pulled out chair. I love it!

Beautiful, serene painting. The sunlight on the table and the floor is warm and inviting. Wouldn't you love to have breakfast in this room!

Boo-ya, girl! This is a show stopper, or shall we say best in show? Really, really nice.

Can one use the food network term "yummo" for a painting? The light cannot be executed any better than this, just beautiful!
