Ocean and Joffe

Chantal Joffe, Untitled, 1995

Humphrey Ocean, Bloom

I am looking a lot at these two painters right now...even though I'm not doing a lot of painting.
I see similarities in the work, as well as qualities I want my own work to have. The subject matter of adolescent girls is really expressed through the sloppy and sometimes disproportionate styles of the artists. They seem sort of funny but sad too.

Mystery Knitter

I saw a tree sweater in Rittenhouse Square and loved it! I also love the fact that trees won't be needing sweaters soon because its finally getting a little warmer.
