"The Mother Load"

You can almost hear what this weighted-down mother is saying to herself as she seemingly 'escapes' into the scene of the painting before her. That particular piece of American Art is a breathtaking, realism piece done by Charles Curran, titled "Lotus Lilies" - one of my personal favorites in the Art Institute of Chicago.

This one is really striking Karin. I love the contrast of the woman in the Curran painting to the viewer--fantastic. Your beach paintings have also been a real treat too. Keep up the great work as always!
Best,
Cooper

Karen,
I've been following your work for some time know and it's only getting better as this little master piece demonstrates.
