Taking A Break

8"x 10"
acrylic on masonite

This is the current entry for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks Blog. What I enjoy about painting people is having the time to contemplate and consider who they are and what they're doing instead of just passing them on the street.
It took several tries to get the drawing to fit within the space, a challenge I remember from Life Drawing class. I need more practice!
