Karin Jurick


This is my portrait of Karin Jurick, an amazing artist who inspires me. I participated in a labor of love initiated by Jill Polsby , who approached a bunch of us to do a portrait of Karin from the same reference photo. The results are here...all 118 of them. It is a group thank you to a great lady.

  2. Dude, this is one of the very best of the entire 118. There was a posting frenzy yesterday among the artists and I just hope they get a second wind in their fingers and remember that Vern didn't have his posted when the frenzy occurred and that they need to come back here and tell him what an incredible job he did capturing Karin! Your palette makes me weak in the knees and you nailed her. Congratulations!

  14. Vern, I thought you were still on your Bike Break? Your admiration for Karin shows in your painting.
    Let me tell you, your last two paintings have won me over. I was on the fence as to whether or not I'd add a bicyclist image to my Japan Series and "I can see clearly now" that it's a must. They are positively charming.
