Karen Frattali Paintings

KarenKaren Frattali, renowned watercolor artist and teacher from Chester County, PA, and current Second Vice President of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, was the featured artist and demonstrator for the Pennsylvania State Museum’s “Learn at Lunch” educational series on November 14, 2014.  During that time Karen created two smaller paintings that demonstrated her layering techniques to create transparency and luminosity in watercolor that are hallmarks of her current work.  Karen has generously given both paintings to PWS as a donation!  Each painting is 8 x 10 inches with an 11 x 14 inch mat. Both have a backing ready for framing and are bagged in clear acetate.  Karen holds Signature Status in several watercolor societies and her work has been accepted into many juried shows.  She has been recently featured in Southwest Art magazine and is one of the most collectable artists of today!

As a once in a lifetime opportunity, PWS is offering both paintings for sale to PWS members, collectors, art enthusiasts, or friends of PWS.  Each one of kind, original, watercolor painting, with mat and backing ready for framing, is being offered for $100 each, which includes shipping and handling! If you would like to own one or both of these outstanding offerings, please click to:  visit our online store
