Kellene Champlin Watercolor Paintings

Welcome to my Watercolor Paintings website


We've made some changes! I have framed several images for various shows that are now on the website. Some show the image framed, others still show just the image. Be assured that images not shown in their frames are matted and framed with the same high quality materials. CONTACT me if you want a more specific description). All framed work is matted or double-matted, most with UV acrylic or UV glass. Frames, whether wood or metal, as well as mat colors, are carefully selected to complement the image. All are ready-to-hang, and prices always include shipping and insurance within the continental US.

The Website

I invite you in and hope you will spend some time here. All of my watercolor paintings are one-of-a-kind originals. The
GALLERY is a portfolio of my watercolor work. These landscapes, cityscapes, waterscapes, people, and the occasional animal already reside in homes in several states. PAINTINGS FOR SALE showcases watercolor paintings currently available for sale and PayPal makes this easy.

My Inspiration

I find inspiration for my watercolors in the beautiful areas around Rochester NY where I live with my husband and best critic, Dan. New York State, especially the Western and Upstate regions are rich with views and vistas: two of the Great Lakes, Niagara Falls, dozens of vineyards around the Finger lakes, rolling hills of the Southern Tier, the Adirondacks, farms, barns, rivers and waterfalls, vintage buildings, and abundant New York State parks. In our own backyard deer, fox, blue heron, geese families, and other critters along Honeoye Creek provide inspiration as well as entertainment. Scenes and subjects from our travels provide many themes. Snow is often featured in my paintings (since it's here for many months). I often incorporate figures to add life and activity. At times the people are the main focus, as in the "bench series" I work on periodically. It's fascinating how attitude, posture, emotion, and outlook are revealed in a discreet study of people sitting on benches in various settings. I hope you will bookmark my site, and return often to see what's new! Whether you are just looking or looking to purchase for home, office, or a gift - please enjoy browsing.
