I have always loved the ordinary object as subject. If it is banal, I think it is beautiful.
So I obviously swooned over the gorgeous paintings of Holly Farrell, when they started to make their way around the blog world.
I am still swooning, I so wish I could have one, right now, hanging above my couch. And I must say I am generally not one to be that excited by painting in general.
I find Holly's palette absolutely perfect, love her simple straightforward compositions, and find delight int he patterns of her objects. I am most in love with her "portraits" of chairs and couches.
Love, Love, Love.
