Thanks Jackie. I enjoyed looking at her paintings and reading her thoughts about them. This sentence really spoke to me:

"When I painted it, I found myself painting by pure instinct way more abstractly then I expected to. I listened to that something within and ignored everything else that my brain and the photo was trying to tell me to do."

Oh, to be able to ignore my brain and those ever-powerful photos! :)

Interesting blog! Some of her paintings are a little too abstract for my taste, others really take my breath away. I like the way she'll paint from feeling or imagination sometimes instead of sticking to the photo though, it's very stimulating to read about someone using that method.

Love it, they are sublime (like the artist titled her blog) and her descriptions are fun.
