"A Sit Down"

5 x 7"
oil on masonite
sold


(detail)

A weary museum patron resting on a bench - perfect subject for figurative painting. I especially love the muted tones - the gray-purples, soft browns, touches of gold and pink and aquas from the cool light. It feels quiet.

Fantastic Karin!
How do you ever get your figures so real with such loose brush strokes?
Makes you wonder what she's thinking.
Have you ever had the subject of one of your paintings contact you asking to buy their portrait?

To date, no one has recognized themselves in a painting. It would be remarkable if they did.

This is a good depiction of how I feel after about 45 minutes of looking at paintings. Pooped.
