A Painting a Day

I Stumbled Upon this artist’s site today: Karin Jurick — through a ‘painting a day’ blog.  I love her beautiful tiny representational paintings; I especially love her paintings of people looking at art.  She has done lots of them, too.  Click on the Karin Jurick’s Museum Goers to see hundreds of her gorgeous little paintings, and read her story…very interesting and inspirational.

One must ease the public into it – that’s an art in itself.

Comments on My Paintings
  • Your painting reminds me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings. Although your painting reminds me of her work, it does bring about a different kind of experience. Her flowers to me are beautiful. But they also seem reserved, formal, almost abstract, not romantic in anyway, not even alive but more like something plucked and then frozen in time. Your work has some of the same shapes, and yet the relationship of the shapes to each other is different and not at all formal like O’Keeffe’s. There is more movement in your painting, more energy, more aliveness. (I’m not taking your title into consideration.) To me, I’m looking deep into the heart of a living flower.
