Whoa! Awesome collection. I LOVE your beach scenes, actually more than your gallery scenes. Terrific to see them all together :)

Fantastic grouping and theme song! Makes me want to grab a surfboard, put down the top and hit the beach. Only problem is I can't surf, don't have a convertible and it's still really cold here in New England...

Thank you for making this wonderful video of them.

Sheesh Karin, you are SO GOOD!

Mary Spires said...

Karin you're just the best! Have you given it any more thought about teaching down in sunny Florida? Come down next winter (February) you can have a beach day!!!!

Anne Marie Propst said...

That was so much fun to watch! Love the ladies not really in bikini shape! Adorable.

Karin, You seem to have captured people from every possible angle! You never know who is lurking behind that camera! You made me feel like a real slacker, I don't think I have put out that much art in the last year! Very, very enjoyable, I'm off to the beach in the morning. Thank You

This was just delightful! How creative and refreshing!

LOVE the Beach Series! The music really puts 'cha back in that Surfer Girl state of mind. Was happy to see that the majority of the beach bunnies are a little older and perhaps not quite as "Gidget-like" as they once were. Moondoggie" is holding his own as well. It sort of takes the danger out of going to the beach but leaves in all the fun!

Your work makes me smile. I love the intimacy and the way you cropped some of the images. You do have a gift for great gesture. Nice music too. Thanks for creating this.

Awesome! Love your video love your work, love your colors.
What program did you use to make the video? Roxio or something better?
Thank you for the visual treat!

Ann Rogers said...

Fabulous 4-minute mini vacation at the beach! But how do you do it all, have you discovered a day with more than 24 hours???

dominique eichi said...

great movie that makes you smile and takes you to a short vacation where you come back from expecting to have sand between your toes ! Well done and thanks for the inspiration

Wonderful! I think we are all represented in there somewhere. Your paintings are unfailingly good. You color and form are always strong and vibrant. Thanks for sharing your work!

Pure delight! Thanks.

This was the most entertaining presentation of a collection of work I have seen. It was fun, humorous, and real. I felt like I knew most of the people in the beach scenes. The music was perfect. Great!! And of course so is the body of work.

Great design and balance of warm and cool.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

Stunning, to use an overused word.
I particularly like the nocturne with the moon shining through and the long horizontal one with the white umbrellas and the people all sitting on the beach. The paint handling is fantastic and they aren't all THIN! Thank YOU, Karin!
