I was thinking all night about what it was like to pain the amazing Karin, so I dug up two pieces I did of her. They both took about two and a half hours, she is so easy to paint, looking at her, the color mixes itself. I always felt as I was painting her that her energy was making the painting and I was just watching. What a beautiful muse. I miss working with her, I know her adventure is just getting grander!
You can also find her in some of my mentor's work, Mark Strickland.
Karin just sent me this last picture of my studio... the painting of the new mama nursing was one of my favorites but was completely destroyed in the fire, along with more than 40 other pieces.
