rebecca adams

When the beautiful, striking, black and white paintings of American artist Rebecca Adams showed up in my inbox this weekend, I knew I had Monday’s post! They almost look like photographs, don’t they? That “lighting”… so gorgeous! And once you read her artist bio, it will make even more sense:

Rebecca Adams has a BFA in photography. Her paintings focus on black and white portraiture referencing stylized and graphic photography and film. She transitioned into painting after school, utilizing her skills in photography and lighting to aid in her subject matter.

Well, yeah. Amazing.
