“Blue Monday” is a horizontal original oil on stretched canvas by Charleston artist Karen Hewitt Hagan. Featuring a slightly textured steel blue color in the background that provides a serene background for a set of dancing red poppies. “Blue Monday” is an oblong painting that would be a lovely addition to any home. The lively movements of the poppies instill a sense of life and vitality to the 30in x 48in canvas that is beautifully framed in a 32 x 50 x 2 in solid wood black frame. Painter and Gallery Owner, Karen Hewitt Hagan, is living the quintessential life of an accomplished artist. The Florence, South Carolina native has taught plein air painting in Charleston, Italy, the Bahamas, and France. Currently she teaches privately in her Charleston Studios. Though she’s traveled the world, lived aboard a boat (aptly named Plein Air) for over 8 years, she says Charleston continues to be her calm, stable source of inspiration.
