Words can't describe how exciting I find this work by Virginia Yount. Thanks for the link, Artnicks.


UPDATE: I just had the pleasure of meeting Virginia and viewing one of her paintings in person. Thanks to an unusual chain of events, along the lines of "friend's neighbor's daughter-in-law who happens to be in town this week", we met just five minutes from my house. I got to see the fabulous "Hasta La Vista".

I see a family resemblance.

Me too, but it seemed presumptious to say it. These are what I dream of doing, which is really perfect inspiration: two parts exciting work, one part kick in the pants.

Yes, when I glanced at the photos, I thought, wow, she is taking a big turn here, and then saw they were not your paintings. Definitely in the family though.

It will be exciting to hear how your tête-à-tête goes after sharing the motivations behind each other's work.
