"Innocent Bystander"

12 x 12"
oil on masonite

A sure bet - women and girls are mostly drawn to artworks depicting women and girls. It's what we know. Men on the other hand are drawn to structural objects, sculptures and dramatic scenes. These two are standing before Morisot's 'Woman at Her Toilette', while on the right is Renoir's 'Woman at the Piano'. Both paintings hang in the Art Institute of Chicago.

This is simply fantastic. Love the "girls looking at the girls". Beautifully done! And wonderful use of color.

Love it! Classic Karin Jurick. Those stripes on the little girl are fantastic.

Lovely composition I feel I'm standing a little behind them reading their thoughts.

Oh, Karin, I beg to differ! I much prefer paintings of women over buildings. Great work!

I know this spot well at the Art Institute. It's just 2 blocks from my studio, I'm due for a visit! Wonderful piece!

Love the painting and the insights. Funny how people are really more alike than they know, huh?
