Imagine an aspiring art student, having some direct tips from Van Gogh or other great artists. Karen would find her comparison with Van Gogh as outrageous and would not accept it. But we are here to notice, beginning from great adversity through great challenge, continuing through emotional conflicts and physical restraints, the fight for great art continues, and this is what Karen represents.
Karen is not afraid of her physical condition, in fact she embraces it, and overcomes it. The result is art which is sublime, refined, and delicate, with a great spirit of color and imagination. But most of all, it is an inspiration to all, which comes down to this simple fact: There are no limits to the imagination.
