"Sun Catcher"

8 x 8"
oil on masonite

This scene is especially fun to work with oils, the trick to getting chalk to look like chalk, on top of concrete. Very, very fun.

Karin: I absolutely love this painting and think you did an amazing job capturing the child's chalky adventure, as well as the texture and color of the chalk on the concrete. I've featured this painting on my blog for my readers to enjoy. Keep up the great work!

No matter what subject you choose you capture it perfectly.

Commenting on your paintings is like trying to comment on Tiger Woods golf. I have run out of superlatives! Beautiful and telling.

Yeah...what Jo said.

The child is a great change from the all the adults. You've captured her sweetness.

Can't wait to see your Seattle stuff.

I love this painting! You can see how involved the child is in her artwork - and I love the untold stoy of other adventures the crown tells. I am such an admirer of your painting style.

Thanks for the link on the use of photography by the Impressionists. Fascinating how they used it to further their art.

Yup, you got the chalk to look like chalk, no small accomplishment. Very nice.
