Some Favorite Painters

While perusing painter Mary Klein's blog, I was reminded of two other painters whose work I admire -- Morris Graves and Mary Newcomb. I marvel at Graves' evocative paintings of birds and flowers, and Mary Newcomb's fresh interpretation of the world around her. There is a wonderful book on Newcomb's work by Christopher Andreae which shows up from time to time via online booksellers. While looking for images of Newcomb's work I stumbled upon this tribute/obituary. She died this past March at the age of 86.
