I first ran across the work of Joyce Washor when I was doing my usual read-for-free-at-Barnes-and-Noble-because-I'm-broke thing. I still remember my jaw hangin open as I looked at all the paintings in the book. Seriously this book, Big Art Small Canvas is just choke full of the most beautiful little paintings. I just thought each one of the was amazing. Rock solid composition, fluid gestural brush strokes and stunning color palettes. What can I say? I'm amazed what she packs into these little paintings. Check out the book and her blog.
