Welcome to Wet Paint v3.

Welcome to Wet Paint.  It’s a privilege to have this little piece of blank canvas on line and I thank you for visiting it.

I’m Karen Shapiro.   I write the entries and unless otherwise noted, I take the photos and do the illustrations.  Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I still live here with my husband, Ira, and our two grown children.

Ira and I run a mom and pop operation called Ira’s Peripheral Visions.  We design announcements, note cards and invitations for the general public, and all sorts of print promotion (theater programs, postcards, flyers, press kits) for a couple of small dance companies.  We’ve been in business since 1983; on line since 1996 .

After hours, I can be found in New York City’s dance studios, galleries, museums, book stores and theaters, or working in the back office of the DeMa Dance Company.  I hold a Bachelors of Architecture and I practiced in New York City for ten years.   My main interest is in modest and small scale dwellings using sustainable materials and design.

    Karen,
    Reading about the way you look at the various aspects of human made as well as natural made art is so interesting and refreshing. The clarity and honesty of your thoughts and feelings are so refreshing; with no ego or malcontent intended, just with the real interest of informing, sharing and educating. Thank you for this!
