ky anderson paintings

it snowed again last night and it made me really depressed. these winter months with little light really set my teeth on edge and i am right about at the time of the year when i say that i can’t take it anymore. haven’t uttered it yet though. or maybe i did yesterday, i can’t remember. but i’m sitting here ignoring the bitter cold and putting off clearing the sidewalks around my house to focus on the pastoral tones in these abstract works in oil from brooklyn-based artist ky anderson instead. yes! what she paints is where i yearn to be in my mind – someplace where serene calm is peppered with bits of playful liveliness. yes, i need to be there right now.

the art of misty mawn

i think these heavily textured paintings with their substantial layers and sensitive motifs from virginia artist misty mawn are so very beautiful. i see restrained exuberance, and graphic details that for some reason don’t feel that noisy. how does she do that?

say hi to misty on her blog and be sure to check out her flickr stream for more artwork and photography.


grant haffner paintings

i love the vivid colors in these simple mixed media compositions from new york artist grant haffner. They’re a direct translation of what he sees while in his truck on the road. i love the long leading lines the pavement provides, and of course the slightly askew telephone poles. the pieces are primarily composed of acrylic, pencil and marker.
