"Lamp Post"

6 x 12"
oil on masonite

A gentleman I spotted in a hotel lobby in Charleston. And despite a lot of bustle going on all around him, he find a nice, lit spot to ignore it all and quietly read his newspaper.

Karin,
Only you have that innate gift of creating a painting out of a man reading a newspaper. Beautifully done- I am looking for the Fragonard yellow! Just love this and so good to see you back in your stride. Yay for you to persevere and let your art shine.

This painting is simply delicious. I love all the textures and varied surfaces, plus a slam-dunk composition. I'm coming to your Hilton Head workshop and I can NOT wait!!!
