ART - America Martin

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?

All photos mine, taken at Carver Hill Gallery in Rockland. Maine.


  1. I like her art too. Great colors and innocense!

  2. Thank you for posting this. It’s exactly what I was looking for!

  3. Wow, America's art is so much fun! Thanks for sharing it.

  4. I really like it too, particularly the first piece. Hope you're doing well.

  5. oh my goodness I've been head over heels in love with her work ever since you shared those photos from your trip to Maine last year. What is it about the paintings? The large hands? The facial expressions? The bold lines? Her work is so strong -- almost brings me to tears! thanks for another look :)

  6. Hi Ann!
    How are you? America's art is interesting, I like it's Picassoesque look. Always can count on you to share something new...... Great pictures by the way.... Maryanne xo

  7. I'm always so glad when you talk about art, Ann. Love this!

  8. Its the details of our lives I think that in some respects make the impact. Its only once in a while the big picture matters. I loves these photos of the details.

  9. We are going to Rockland in September and can hardly wait to see her work in!!

    1. Great! Check to see a bunch of her new work. The gallery will be having a show for her from August 3 - September 12. Hope you get to see it!
      Thanks so much for your comment, too. I have had serious bloggers block and haven't posted in so long! Looking for inspiration and hoping to post again soon.
