A gentleman who I thought looked very much like the figures in the icons he was viewing in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.

Karin, your painting is just lovely as usual. I, too, left the Thanksgiving holiday with a back issue! I am so much better now and I hope the same for you. Best wishes.

Karin, It's disappointing that they decided to forego the reception for your show. But I'll be by to see your show anyway. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs!

So sorry!! Hope you heal quickly.
Love this painting. You did a beautiful job with my least favorite, boring era of painting....Renaissance...ugh! Don't get me wrong....I do love me some Jesus.
Hope your "always somethings" turn into good somethings.

Your Met series is amazing! While looking at them each one was a favorite and then the next and then the next ........ Wish I could see them in person.

Thank you for the detail shot. Your modern day monk is fantastic. Such strong, confident brushstrokes. That arm with the notebook, perfection.
Hope your back gets better soon.
