Oh, I do love mundane subject matter and muted palettes… enter the oil paintings (on collaged paper!) of California based artist¬†Meghan Jean. Sigh.¬†Nothing like finding beauty in the everyday. In fact, do that right now. Look around and find something beautiful. A shadow, a texture, an old chair that you don’t even notice anymore. Yep, we’re surrounded.

    I find it so beautiful! There is a feeling of stillness and melancholy, a bit like in Edward Hopper’s paintings.

    I agree with Amandine’s comments. Calm and still imagery and balanced with flat matte color that pulls you in even more, as if we need anything to do this. I love her work!

    What do you mean by collaged paper? Does she make it herself?

    I love these, they remind me of archiving moments and little snippets of the artist’s memory. Thank you for sharing!
