"Boogie On"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite

A scene from the beach, somewhat abstract surrounding the woman on the bicycle - I enjoy that about this new piece.

Just love the shadow in this one Karin, and the composition.

Hi Karin,
Welcome back, your work is better than ever. Take care of your self, burnout is no fun, and a great loss to us.
I love the composition in this one.

I really like this. She feels like she's in the sunshine. You're good!

Your paintings are bright and gorgeous! Do you know Colin Page.? He too has a wonderful palette. I saw your U Tube thingy on your color palette. Holy cadmium! use a lot of colors! I'm an old timey watercolor painter who has been doing acrylic now for about 4 years. I have to exert a whole lot of patience mixing colors, and therefore keep my palette somewhat limited. I'm going to be posting two portraits I'm completing (in about a week) using a new acrylic product by Golden called Golden Open". Sure would like to get your feedback if you have the time. Wonderful work, Karen!

You are such a master of the simplified shapes.

The few strokes of paint on the inside of the front wheel give it motion.

My first visit to your blog. I like the way you take a simple subject and with few important brush strokes tell the story.

I love this painting. How hard is working on masonite?
