Proud Julie



I am really a happy camper today as I feel blessed to have been included
in the list of The Art Room's Artists Who Blog. We were asked to pick our favorite painting of 2013.

The Art Room

It was hard to choose my favorite paintings of last year but if you wish to see
what I picked then please use the link above.
Make sure you scroll and check out all the fine artists already on there (through January.)

If you are not familiar with The Art Room then you are really missing
out on some inspiring and interesting art talk. I subscribe and always look forward to seeing it in my mailbox.

TARYN DAY, who is a fabulous artist in her own right, takes the time to lead us into the world of intimate viewpoints she gains by either interviews with contemporary artists or research into the work of artists of the past.
Give yourself a gift and explore the links above.

  22. In your two favorite paintings, I admire two sides that represent for me the essence of your wonderful Art. The poetry of the nest, with the balance of color and textures, timeless, classic beauty. The compositional rhythm, the vibrant colors, and subtle abstraction in aprons hanging in the closet. You are so rightly proud, dear Julie! Well deserved!!!
