I wish I knew the story behind this painting. It's a wonderful portrait, capturing your subject in action. The flow of your brushstrokes helps to create the movement and lifelike quality. It's so much more personal than the typical 'say cheese' portrait. Great work!

Another great painting! I really like how you capture all of the details without adding every eyelash. Wonderful!

The shadows are fantastic. Of course, the colors are amazing. It's all good!

Wow! Another awesome piece, Karen. For some reason, I was reminded of the days (which truly were before my time) when people used to get ice delivered to their homes, probably for ice boxes.
