"Right To Privacy"

7 x 12"
oil on masonite

There's one of many advantages to having my boyfriend join me on my photo-taking travels - he often spots something around the corner that I would have missed. And naturally, he appreciates the beauty of women. So thanks to Brett for my new painting today - from a phone booth inside the National Gallery of Art.

You are doing a fantastic job.
I love them all.

I like this on as much as the red carpet leg painting. Now I'm wondering what the lady was doing in the booth if she wasn't talking on the phone. Maybe a James Bond thing.

I am laughing! This is such fun! Your work always delights me. I stopped by Howard/Mandville Gallery several days ago. You look fantastic on their walls.
All the best,
Marilyn

spot on! Why did you decide on this format? Seems like the square cropping would work here too.

I love everything about this... the colors, the vertical format, the subject, the brushwork and the composition. Amazing.

This one is really beautiful, Karin. The format, the color and such an intriguing perspective. Love it!

This is terrific! The vertical element in the composition does all the work directing me to the focal point, very smart. Love the light and brush work too!

Edward Burton said...

Very intriguing painting, Karin - there is an air of mystery to it. Very well done!

I especially like this work because with everyone using a Mobile Phone to communicate, the art of sitting in a cubicle designed for privacy to have a considered conversation, is a lost pleasure.

I love this piece. I love your work and I have only been able to view it on the web and in one of your books. I can only imagine how powerful it is in person.

Ah, a mysterious quality that I find Hopper-esque.
Also, a phone booth. These days considered, quaint.
