i’m jealous of judith sinnamon

Now this is a lovely, quiet, and peaceful way to start the week… I can almost smell the fresh morning air from here. These oil paintings {some on linen, some on board} are the work of Australian artist Judith Sinnamon. Her description of this work is almost as beautiful as her paintings … it’s like a poem and I just had to share it:

When concrete bollards and earthmovers moved in and restricted access, I returned to my studio studies of local flora.
Here, I worked from life, suspending branches of dotty zig-zag wattle and entwined weeping melaleuca above my easel with light flowing in from large glass doors. Using the pale blue of early morning skies and the soft shadows falling across the leaves, flowers and branches I aimed to evoke the luminosity and stillness of first light and the delicate muted tones of coastal flora.

Sigh. If you happen to be in Australia {Brisbane to be exact}, you can see Judith’s work at the Edwina Corlette Gallery until August 17th, 2013.
