I LOVE the art of America Martin.
See her new show currently at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin.
If I could, I would describe to you why I am drawn to her paintings.
Her use of color, and her broad, simple strokes are magical.
Clearly they capture my love of color, and people and life... in a big way.
Beyond that, though,
it's difficult for me to put into words why certain work appeals to me.
I just respond, emotionally and visually.
I feel it.
I just know when I love a painting, a sculpture, a piece of art.
America does a much better job of describing her work here for you.
Take a minute and watch the video.
Isn't she a doll?
