Lucy and Dolly, Theresa Maxwell: oil
Back in November I saw this beautiful painting of two little boys featured on CS Design's blog Adding a Little Colour to Life and fell in love with the art of Theresa Maxwell. I've seen a lot of artists paint from photographs, but somehow Theresa Maxwell is able to take a static image and create light, feeling, and movement all with brushstrokes and choice of color. You feel as if the scene just happened. I think what I like best is that she is able to take the every day moment, person, or animal and transform it into something special. Here are a few of Theresa Maxwell's gorgeous paintings to enjoy!
