Karin Eisermann, Artist
I am an artist currently living in Florida in winter and in Ohio in summer. I have lived with my husband in the “ Chicagoland "area before we decided to split our time and escape the harsh Indiana winters. Florida is now a new inspiration to me, the vivid colors when the sun shines and there isn’t a cloud in the sky and all the different palm trees we didn't have in the north.
This is my first attempt at a palm tree. I find most of them so unattractive that I want to give them a lot of artistic flair.

My favorite quotation is
"You expect me to tell you what art is? If I knew, I would keep my knowledge to myself" -Picasso
I can honestly say that this sentence describes my relationship to art in some way. Therefore I'm searching and looking and trying out new things all the time. Along the way I do find all kinds of answers: discoveries of myself, my preferences, dislikes, what gives me pleasure and why. Painting is not only a way to self-knowledge. It is also a sure way to figure out what inspires your friends, aquaintances, your neighbors and total strangers. I'm always amazed how works of art can please some people and annoy so many others, inspire some and leave others totally indifferent. The real challenge for me is to be able to express my own feelings to the viewer pf my paintings. I'm therefore not so much interested in painting what I see but more in painting what I felt when I saw or understood.
