Necessary Art

It has become necessary for me, sometimes, to go visit Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli's paintings. Sometimes, I just need to sit and regard her light.

And then the day can move along.

Breathe. Smile. Peace.

Yes.

Wow, what a great way to start my day. BTW, I love the marks in the varnish on the parquet.

Do you mean the photo header on my Twitter account? You are the one person who's ever mentioned that - I rather liked the photo myself; that is my black-glue-covered kitchen floor!

I'm one of those "I don't know art, but I know what I like" types - those with the talent to produce visual art leave me in wonder; it has never been a skill of mine. But your paintings are just wonderful.

When I was a kid, I liked Richard Scarrey books; the images covering the entire expanse of two pages, filled with tiny scenes and moments. Your images are not that busy-busy, but there is something that transfixes me in the same way, and I just want to gaze and take in the light.
