Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. In My Studio. 1893
I'm quite taken by the realistic and beautifully calm artwork of a new follower here at Clutterquake. She is April Jarocka, an artist in Ireland currently at work on three paintings for a proposal for a Gallery exhibition. I've long been a collector of stones and rocks, so I am especially attracted to her beachscapes featuring stones. But all of her illustrations for children's books and her other paintings are beautiful, and her photography also has a clean and evocative sense to it.
Consider this post a little salute to you, April, as you work serenely in your studio.
And while April works on her three paintings, here is something for the rest of us to consider.....
Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
