Ive been dreaming and playing a lot with more abstract imagery and liking less detail lately. But my love of faces and flowers is just a part of who I am. No changing that.
So my inspirations and my natural style are in a dialogue at the moment. Growing I suppose. Which is why these beautiful paintings by artist, Francoise de Felice are so moving to me right now.
Her artwork is such a beautiful balance of impulsive, and abstract with human subjects and florals all mixing together. Her artwork looks carved out of the paint, more like sculpture in 2-D. So, so beautiful. I would love to see them in person and I like to imagine them quite large. (but don't know)There also doesn't appear to be a lot of tension in her paintings. It looks like she made them in such a trusting, relaxed sort of way. Impulse-to-impulse, just the way I think most artists strive to work. And yet you can see these are real portraits, real people... It's such a joy to see modern masters doing there thing. Hats off Ms. Francois.
