@ossobuco,
I'm familiar with at least one of her works in Boston. I think it's by the Back Bay Station.

Bronze of course.

@djjd62,
I really love the roosting birds Dj!

Defying gravity while still being quite cute.

Can you fill us in on the details [o]Ossobuco[/b]?
Medium? Rough dates? Etc...?

She solely works in pastels?

@tsarstepan,
Grins...


I haven't talked with her in, gads, five years.. but when I knew her, she worked in "mixed media", this and that and some of that. Her works vary in size, from, oh, guessing, 9 x 12 to several feet x several feet. She sometimes pulled her truck up at the side of a road and painted away.. en plein aire, as they say.
Her work is never ever "precious".

@ossobuco,
I should try to contact her, she is one of the people I miss. She might (or might not, who knows?) like a2k.

@ossobuco,
We do need more active artists in our fold. I'd gladly welcome her.

@tsarstepan,
and then there's one of my all time favorite people, Sonya Fe, shown here in front of her very big painting, 4 x 8 feet?, titled something like "when she calls, he comes"... featuring amidst the foliage monkeys looking a little like nuns, bananas, and birds..

Some of Sonya's work is tough, about child abuse, for example. Very serious and moving.

I suppose I should do some recruiting (I'm not facile at that).

Sharon Yates was one of my teachers at the Maryland Institute.
I love her cow paintings.
You can read more about her here. http://paintingperceptions.com/?p=1217

@tsarstepan,
I don't recognize these two, so they are probably done after 2005 or so. LOVE the top one. A sorrow for me is that I never bought one of her paintings for myself, money being spare.

@tsarstepan,
You and I have gone around the block on this, me listing all my early qualms ad infinitum, but, I gotta say the man is one of the greats.

@tsarstepan,
On Willa, that link shows that she works with different tools, watercolor, oil, pastels.. my memory is that there can be a mix.

Francis posted this on the beautiful animals thread. I thought the photographer was gifted. I remembered the pic and went hunting for it:
