Old Friends

I attended an art demonstration by Aileen Garvey.  As she demonstrated her skill in using florescent acrylic paints, she talked about her paintbrushes.  There were so many that should be thrown away, but, she said, she just couldn't part with them.  She smiled and said they were like old friends she wanted to hang on to.
 Her paintings are vibrant, full of life, expressive pieces that keep the eye moving throughout the compositions.
 It was a wonderful time spent with friends observing and learning from this gifted artist.

I had to look closely to see the subjects were not realistic. The fluorescent paints are subtle, yet striking.
