"Gracie"

4 x 11"

Gracie is my friend's dog - who loves to ride in the car and go to the park. I did this on a whim, with a wide, flat brush - no sketching out - in about 45 minutes. I really love to paint that way.

Really beautiful, Karin. I always want to gaze at your amazing brushwork.
Do you ever conduct any workshops in Atlanta or close by? I'm in Tucker.

Wow this is when you are really at your best, flying free with a terrific subject, and just letting go. Wonderful painting.

As Gracie's Mom, This is the MOST GORGEOUS painting and my best treasure. Gracie can't walk to the park since cancer has taken its toll but she so LOVES to ride there in the car. I see the movement and the expression and it so captures the joy Gracie feels in the ride. Karin is so talented, generous and such a fabulous person. Karin's gift of this painting brought me to tears. I am overjoyed.

You are so amazingly gifted. How beautiful this dog is and the comment from her mother is touching.
