Karen, an artist and instructor from PA, hoped to continue painting while being treated for metastatic lung cancer but the process and expense of purchasing supplies for her home studio was a deterrent. The very activity that provided the most healing distraction and comfort for Karen seemed difficult to pursue.
Seas It was able to apply Karen’s Seas It grant to top-notch art supplies delivered to her home studio with donations from the Italian Art Store in NJ and Dick Blick in Philadelphia.
Below is an image of one of Karen’s paintings from 2013. Seas It wishes Karen recovery aided by doing what she loves. We can’t wait to see the outcome of her time in her studio!
Karen Baumeister, Whites of Gray, Yellow and Red, 60 x 60 inches, 2013
