Today I have a special treat – for me and for you!
First, I get to meet my friend Ann Goble for lunch. We try to do this every once in a while – not nearly enough! Ann has been a dear friend for many years, as we’ve both raised our kids and pursued creative careers as well. Our sons just graduated, but I know our friendship will long continue.
Now the treat for you – I thought I’d share a bit of Ann’s work here to brighten your day. I’ll have her back for a real interview soon, but I wanted to whet your appetite.
Ann began seriously painting in1999. She has studied under renowned painters including Roseta Santiago, David Leffel, Gregg Kreutz and Marc Chatov. Her work has garnered numerous awards and hangs in galleries and private collections.
Her paintings are breathtaking. Here are some of my favorites:
Ann begins her artist’s statement, “Painting is for me a search for beauty.” I think you’ll agree she’s found it! You can learn more about Ann and see additional paintings here.
But wait – there’s more! Ann’s mother, Ruth I. Money, is also an accomplished painter. (You know, the apple doesn’t fall…) Ruth and Ann have exhibited their paintings in the same shows before, and if you happen to live in north Georgia, you can see an exhibit celebrating both their careers. “Mothers and Daughters” runs until July 19 at The Bowen Center for the Arts. Click here for more info, directions, and images of paintings – and feel free to leave some love in the comments below.
Oh, Robyn, the paintings are so beautiful. I have a friend who has horses, does dressage. I will send this on to her!
Linda, thank you for visiting (and for sharing)! Ann’s daughter is an avid horsewoman (and art history major – you’d love her), and it’s been magical to see how horses have inspired Ann’s art.
