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.

Amy Bennet

It looks like she makes models of a place (a neighborhood in these examples) and then proceeds to paint a series of stories about the people who live or visit there. Many of the paintings are relatively small and I imagine they perfectly convey the intimacy of her character's private lives. She also does some very small paintings, less than 2 inches square.
More at her website www.amybennett.com
There are some scenes from a summer at the lake at this gallery: www.richardhellergallery.com

"Someday You Will Long for This" 2006, 40" x 60"

"Surviving Winter" 9" x14"

No surprise that my favorites are the night scenes
