6 x 6"

oil on masonite


What I love the most about painting people is capturing that kink of the hip or twist of the neck - whatever it is that makes it more candid or believable. You don't get that when someone knows you're looking or taking their picture. Just people being themselves is what I always want. This young lady was enjoying the paintings in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Candid is exactly the word I'd use.

Thanks for addressing my question, I see what you mean. This one's really nice, I like her flip-flops particularly. They look loose and slightly too big.

I went through your entire blog at http://web.mac.com/kjurick/iWeb/ZemArt/Welcome.html and I love it.

But I was looking for the works I recently saw here, wanting to see these 2 again: http://bp3.blogger.com/_iYlf2ALEOBU/RuMJURotyFI/AAAAAAAAAaY/VHdXmSFzGO0/s320/gardenvariety.jpg and http://bp1.blogger.com/_iYlf2ALEOBU/RuCNQhotyDI/AAAAAAAAAaI/breY5mV4ntw/s320/impressionable.jpg, i like them very very much

I found them now but I have a question.

Which paintings do you publish there and how are they different from what you publish here?
