Paintings

After last week's post and looking at these nice images, I'm ready to crack out my paints. I even dug out my high school easel and some old canvases to get me started. The flickery afternoon light on the little patch of forest in our back yard has been begging me to paint for a few weeks now. 

Jean Brusselmans, 1884-1953, was a Belgium painter. The image below is the view from his studio window, which he painted again and again capturing all seasons.

Janice Biala, 1903-2000, developed her style in a career that lasted over 70 years. I love her color palette and the simple subject matter of her paintings. See more of her work here.
