When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Claire Sherman

I'm including a few more pieces here than usual because I think the cumulative effect is more telling than the individual pieces might be at first glance. I love how she seems to approach these landscapes as if they were merely abstractions, but despite this or maybe because of it, they really capture the atmosphere of the place. And I love the big bold almost loopy brushwork that could almost go over the top if it weren't for the pitch perfect colors.
