Had a really good dinner at Mom's and some presents (art books and mysteries!!! yay!!!) for my birthday in January!
I got several art books, and am especially loving these two by Shirley Trevena (one from Mom and one from my sister). They know what I like! And I'm taking my time going through these, reading and learning. Shirley has such a vivid color sense and definitely has a style all her own, not caring about perspective but putting shapes where she thinks they look best. It must be fun to watch her set up a still life and then paint it, making changes as she goes.
I got the latest Daniel Smith sales catalog and knew immediately that it was a Shirley Trevena painting on the cover - she does have a signature style.
Happy Groundhog's Day!!!
