indian girl in red

Today is random posting day. I have been brokering art for Karl Thomas, my uncle, for about 3 years now and really enjoy it. I love being able to market such an unbelievably cool product, I love using his images to make awesome promotional items and he has the coolest website ever (made by pete hawkes). The painting below, "Indian Girl in Red" is my all time favorite painting of Karl's. It reminds me of Richard Schmid's paintings. I think the way the figure fades into the background is amazing, the impression of the ledge for her hands, the bow in her hair and the expression on the girl's face - i never really have a physical reaction to art - but this one just makes me catch my breath every time I see it.
