I love beautiful art. Art that doesn't need to be explained to me. If it takes a docent to tell me why something is art, I pass.
But I do love beautiful paintings and sculptures of moments in time, of emotions, of real life, that speak to me. I love color and the use of light in paintings. I love art that is accessible. And I love when I discover a new artist to whose work I can relate, so I thought I would share some of my favorite artists with you today.
I am a fan of the work of Charles Burton Barber:
|This one is entitled "A Special Pleader." A copy of this|
print hangs in my living room.
|This one is entitled "Monster" and I love the make|
believe and the cat trying to escape. :)
|This one is called "Almost Home." I love the light|
coming through the trees, and the little girls on the creek bank.
|"God Shed His Grace on Thee" is a favorite as well. The detail|
of the town in the background and the warmth of the light
coming through the church windows...and the mix of cars and
wagons and buggies. So cool.
|This one is called "Saving the Flag." My husband took|
a photo of this in the museum, but this angle shows the
movement and the dire situation so well.
