"Feast For the Eyes"

8 x 12"
oil on masonite

At my shop, I have framed prints and posters of Diego Rivera's work for years - but nothing comes close to seeing the paintings in person. They are marvelous.

From the Museum of Modern Art in New York, a visitor pours over Rivera's 'Flower Festival: Feast of Santa Anita' - a massive, colorful, brilliantly-composed feast for the eyes.

Great colors Karin, I love the way you relate the pose to the paintings, we as your viewers can almost hear the wheels turning as the patrons read about the art.

Beautiful work, Karin. You have captured some amazing detail on the Diego piece. It truly is a great composition and it immediately tells a story. I also love the viewer. It all comes together so beautifully.

The white wall is so pure and sets off the figure and painting so beautifully.
