"Blank Stare"




12 x 12"

I really love placing figures in front of a nearly blank background - concentrating more on the form and playing with the edges. I used a palette knife to lay on the off-whites of the enormous abstract painting, essentially sculpting around the figure, pulling some traces of the darker paint as I went. I really enjoyed working this way.

What beautiful details in that skirt and I think I want her boots. I am amazed that painting (I assume it is a real painting) she is looking at is considered 'art.' Reminds me of a paint card you can pick up at Home Depot or Menards or something! LOL Yet she does indeed seem to be interested or intrigued by it. Karin, you always leave me awed.
