"Blond"

12 x 3-5/8"
oil on masonite
sold

I'm back in the driver's seat - my Mac had to be rushed to the hospital and of course I am reminded of how vital this machine is to my existence. The good thing - I had no choice but to get caught up with long-neglected chores. And I've been helping out with plans for an upcoming 30th high school reunion. Yes, 30 years.

Since the summer is coming to an end, I squeezed in this new painting - a young lady enjoying a good book in the sunshine on the beach of Hilton Head Island.

It's funny how connected we become to our computers. My computer at work has been out for 3 days and it's driving me crazy! Love this painting. I am always amazed at your brushstrokes. Up close they seem cluttered, but back up and they disappear into a perfect painting. I wish I could take classes from you. Keep painting!

I like the way you work with light. The sand has a "glittering" quality - well done.

Hi Karen, I have been following your blog for some time. You are an exceptional talent. You have inspired me to try some figure studies of people in various locations. Thank you for sharing.

Good luck with your computer. We had a Mac crash this summer, and it was stressful in the extreme. This is my first visit to your blog, and I am blown away by your painting!

Hi Karin

I love how you connect your people to their surroundings. Your colors work so well whether on the beach or at the farm of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Bravo
