Karin.. It takes a while to really make out that this is a painting and not a photo! You are awesome!

This is great, Karin. I love the composition, as I usually do with your work. But the 'off angle' view gives this the feeling of catching this out of the corner of your eye as you're walking by. Excellent!

Love all your paintings and the slide show is great. Did you do it in Picasa?

Giselle McMenamin said...

Wow I applaud you taking on those steps. Even though they just a neutral you performed your magic and made them interesting. As always you nailed the figure. Good one.

Wow Karin, this is such a powerful composition, you could stand it on any end and it would be strong. And I love his foot hanging off the step as a lead in - perfect!

The painting is wonderful, I love that although you can see the brush strokes, it's as if one is standing there. What caught my attention most, was the pathos of the moment and subject. Well done!
