Jim Torok: Walton at Lora Reynolds Gallery

I keep thinking of Caroline. I have never met this Caroline in person, nor have I visited Walton, the town nestled in the Western Catskill Mountains in upstate New York where she resides. And yet, when regarding her portrait — the middle image of seven same-sized, intimately scaled paintings in Jim Torok's Walton exhibition at Austin's Lora Reynolds Gallery — I feel as though I "could" know her. Like I've seen that faintly sun-streaked brown hair, those indescribably blue-grey eyes somewhere before.
