Artist of the Day- Ann Craven (click on image to see more)

One of the things I love about doing these posts is discovering an artist new to me. In this case I was sort of…eh…maybe…what’s the big deal… But I diligently began the research and after 15-20 minutes I was IN LOVE! Sometimes it takes a lot of looking…and reading. Her description of painting small canvases of moon rises…lining up the prepared canvases on easels in Maine where she works part of the year…and quickly over a couple hours producing 4 or 5 of the glowing paintings. She talks about her love of oil paint and how at home she feels with it. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her work.
