Contest #1

It has been delightful to see all the different paintings that everyone has chosen, many of which I have never seen. I had really only seen some of her flowers, of which the poppies had been my favorite. Now to see what a variety she had, that her inspiration changed over time, as most artist experience. There are many paintings here that I find inspiring, but I chose "East River from the Shelton 2". The blues and pinks together are so wonderful and I absolutely love the way she painted the sky! The silhouette of the buildings is in such contrast to the softness of the rest of the painting. It just makes me want to play with the delicacy and intricacy of color!
