Recumbent Knight

oil on panel

I've been inspired by the painter Karin Jurick to paint scenes of people in museums.  Here is my first attempt, a young girl contemplating weighty matters like time and mortality as well as the mystery of this unknown life, represented by an effigy. 

It's dark and rainy again, so this photo was taken inside.  I think the colors are better than this, but as the rain will continue for a while I'll get a better picture taken in a few days .


  1. What a wonderful painting! It just draws you right in.

  2. What an exquisite painting, thought provoking!

  3. Love this! you really captured a moment in time.
