"Amazing Grace"

6 x 8"
oil on masonite

As I worked on the paintings for my solo show - I decided to include a few smaller pieces that demonstrate a more-painterly side of me. I will describe them as more of a glimpse of a figure, where the edges tend to be soft, the details are lessened - with the emphasis being on the color and the light. This painting is one of those smaller, more intimate pieces now on exhibit at the Morris & Whiteside Galleries - a patron of the Phillips Collection viewing one of Degas' beautiful, graceful ballet scenes.

I love it. I'm studying the way you're painting the folds, however, failing to reproduce. But I'm lov'en yours. :)

Hi Karin,

This is superb. The light is magnificent.

Take care,

Like this lots, as usual, but my favorite in your show at Morris and Whiteside is Magic Circle.
Just left HH and wish I was back there to see it up close and personal. Bravo, Karin.
Sincerely, Cathyann

I like the perspective in the painting, the depth. :)
