I am completely smitten with the work of Lola Donoghue. Lola is a talented and prolific artist. She does beautiful fashion illustration which are girly, with just the right amount of edge. Perfect. I only wish I had painted them. She also does visionary abstracts which are at once childlike and sophisticated. I love her use of color, negative space and texture. I chose one of each of her genres, because it was difficult to choose what to feature, I love all her work so much. These two pieces speak to me.here.
Here is a mock up with her painting in my living room. I am in love. My words are not doing these works justice, I am unable to express the depth of my feelings for this work. Oh well, sometimes we over analyze art in an effort to understand it, when it's really about a feeling. I feel this work. Deeply. I could lay on the sofa all day contemplating the color and textures. I wish I painted it! I think I need these in my life.
