About Me


 Karen J Whitacre


At the urging of my husband of 42 years, I discovered my gift - and love- for painting in early 2021.  I'm inspired by color, by life and by the magic, beauty and humor my Creator gives His flora and fauna. I have been given a talent that I use to bring joy to others. I enjoy trying a variety of subjects and techniques.

 Pet Portraits are the bulk of my commission works.  Pets are always giving us grace.  They share our joy, give us a soft place to land when we are sad or overwhelmed, listen to our rants, and know if we need a kiss, a tail wag or just some quiet time. I fall in love with your precious pet as I paint them and it's very hard to let them go.  Your reaction when you see the finished painting is why I named my business "Tails of Emotion!"

Paint & Pray is a "Joy-shop" where I create a painting of a scripture or Biblical concept and  teach your group, step-by-step how to put it on canvas. It's my way to build God's Kingdom through fun and fellowship.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
