The Vintage Metal Paintings are created by Karen Hackett Mogen of khmogen design and are made from vintage found metal pieces that she uses as her canvases to paint her acrylic paintings. She is a professional juried artist here in New Mexico known for her watercolor paintings for many years.  She started painting on vintage metal and tin pieces two years ago and loves the combination of the patina of the vintage combined with her painting.  Each piece is painted with high quality acrylic paint and then sealed with at least two coats of acrylic varnish. These pieces can be hung inside or outdoors.
