"frost and firelight's" featured artist Chris Karpinski

Chris Karpinski has years of experience painting the landscape en plein air. Her new large vertical paintings
are less about the literal depiction of the details of the
landscape. Instead Karpinski has created paintings that
are meditations on nature. These works are expressions of
Karpinski’s inner spiritual feelings for the natural world.
Karpinski conveys space, light, and atmosphere with thin
washes of paint and close tonal values. Each painting has
it’s own unique color harmony. Each is a reprieve from a
busy, hectic world, to a place of quiet contemplation.
Chris Karpinski is an award winning artist. Her work has
shown at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in London. In May
of 2004, she was featured in a three-person exhibit at
Sylvan Gallery for paintings that she created during a
two-week artist’s residency at the International Arts
retreat in County Kerry, Ireland. Karpinski’s work can be
seen regularly at the the Essex Art Association and the
Lyme Art Association where she is an elected artist
member. Karpinski studied at the Rhode Island School of
Design and the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts.
