"Seal By Ledges", 48x48, oil on board, 1980s
"Salmon Pool", 2009, by Karen Anne Baldauski, NFS.  This painting won the Founder's Award given in honor of the founder of the Sumi-e Society of America, Motoi Oi, at the international sumi-e exhibition "Sumi-e For Today"  hosted by the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto, Canada in 2009. Mr. Oi provided Karen with her first sumi-e instruction during an adult ed class in 1972.  The painting juror for this show was Mr. William Ho, an internationally renowned artist. "Sumi-e" is the Japanese term which translates to mean "painting in black ink". It is one of the most challenging media to be undertaken by a painter. 
 
In Karen's FIRST COMPETITION
while still in college, she won first prize for her oil painting "Hope" at the Indiana Intercollegiate Salon of Art, a national competition.  Her professor of painting suggested she enter a piece. The unexpected prize marked the beginning of her life developing a career in the arts. Her creative works span the worlds of painting, drawing, serigraphy, and felting fibers. Her sculpture, a stand alone piece of 21 painted wood loons, is not for sale. The head of the art department advised her following a course in freehand drawing live models: "Drop everything you may have planned and BE AN ARTIST!" (Karen says: A. Reid Winsey has passed on and I am forever grateful for his insight while I was a liberal arts student at DePauw University.)
