Just a Peek by Anne Blair Brown 14×18″ o/l
Anne Blair Brown. Most of you know who she is and are familiar with her work. Her ability to add light in a painting is undeniable. She takes what would be a nice painting and makes it out of this world. I love everything about this painting above. It’s a place I want to be… right now! Look at the underpainting in the sidewalk. I love that! Every time I attempt it I paint over it, sigh… the brushstrokes in the road are fabulous and the road with sunshine… WOW! Anne knows just what to leave in a painting and what to carefully edit out to make it less busy and keep it interesting.
Here is a little blip about the show from Anne:
One Man Show, “Seeing the Light”, at Simie Maryles Gallery, Provincetown, MA.
Me and My Shadow by Anne Blair Brown 14×18″ o/l
Anne Blair Brown was born in North Kingstown, Rhode Island and currently resides in Nashville, TN. Her work centers on both rural and urban landscapes, people, and interior spaces. While she enjoys the quiet solitude of her studio, she delights in painting on location. Brown says, “Painting from life creates an intimacy with the subject that I just can’t get from a photograph, and it heightens my sense of spontaneity. That energy is translated to the canvas in and out of the studio.”
