Karin 11x14 oil on paper on canvas



My painting of our beloved Karin, I understand that 118 artist got together to paint our fellow artist Karin Jurick and she will be surprised today with a book of those portraits. Jill Polsby put the idea together and it was a pleasure to be apart of it. This one was done on crinkled rice paper that was glued to a canvas panel. Click here to enjoy all the portraits.

Your composition is one of my favorites in the sea of Karins. Did the board come with the rice paper or did you do that yourself? I love the texture!

I've never thought of gluing rice paper to canvas panel to form texture- neat idea! Very nice color palette you've done in this portrait of Karin.

Your palette makes me think of a Rembrandt portrait. Super work.
