Art does not need to be deep. If I like a subject, I paint it. If I like a color, I use it.
Art is a way of expressing life's complexities AND simplicities.
- Tabitha Bianca Brown
I received an email from a friend this morning - so excited to show me a new artist whose work she just discovered and fell in love with. I was familiar with Tabitha's work because I was debating about buying this particular friend a print from this very artist. Artwork is so personal - you just never know if two people will feel the same way about an artist or a painting.

Beverley Ashe - "I'm not interested in conventional forms of beauty - rather in the kind that has scars deformities, crooked teeth, the occasional malignance. My angels are not perfect beings - but instead reflect stages of growth where hard lessons are learned and spirit is transformed."
Her paintings are all so beautiful and rich...

I spotted Sharon France years ago on Ebay. She paints the simple scenic calm of rural America. Each painting is so peaceful and serene. Her paintings suck you in. You almost feel like you're wandering the grounds of a beautiful old mid western farm in an early, hazy, warm summer morning.
