It Runs in the Family

For my first post, I'd like to introduce a very talented artist very close to my heart: my mother. Her paintings are almost as beautiful as she is, and they fill our house to the brim, offering stunning splashes of color and shape to just about every wall. She works in oil, often on a very large scale, and paints mostly landscapes, still lifes, and the occasional animal or figure. Her soft impressionistic style inspires me every day and her vivid use of color is simply beautiful. She started to paint when I was young, and now I finally have taken the initiative to learn her oil-painting ways. I am currently enrolled in an oil painting class at Duke University where I hope to explore many different styles in order to find my own. I hope to one day be as talented and successful an artist as my mom! Check out her website to see more!
