Even more bluegrass art

Delta Moon, by Karen CannonThanks to one of readers, who pointed out yet another artist who uses musical – and often bluegrass – themes in their work.

The artist is Karen Cannon, and she offers prints, posters, cards and even coffee mugs using her original musical paintings. Karen spent many years working as a designer in the greeting card industry, and now offers her art directly through her web site, Art Strings Publishing.

Her style is traditional, “small town” Americana, which she acknowledges without reservation.

“A Norman Rockwell influence is evident in the illustrative story-telling theme of the cards. My love of paiting and playing has been brought full circle with these cards. Hope they send a smile to you and your friends.”

I received one of her cards this past Christmas – of Santa playing a mandolin – and was immediately struck by the warmth of the image and the skill of the artist.

See all her works on the Art Strings web site.
