A new month brings us another new artist!
We are so happy to present artwork from a fun and wonderfully creative client, Betsy Roszkowiak!
Betsy's paintings showcase a childlike innocence including brightly colored trees, long swirly hair and anything your little mind day dreams of. Her subjects are imaginative, and dream-like while her DIY solar system installation remains jovial and innocent as it fills our main salon window.
The theme carried throughout her work is from a perspective of life through a little girls eyes. Her exhibition is titled 'Joanna. The Imaginary Friend'.
"Joanna is my friend, but the adults they cannot see her.
She told me the sky was green and the grass was blue.
The adults said those were the biggest lies that had ever been told
But I don’t care what they say, I know Joanna speaks true.
By day Joanna lives in my pocket and hides in the trees at night
She told me that her favorite color is a sparkling drop of dew
And that sometimes Neptune can be the same size as the moon
So the question is this, what does your Joanna say to you?"
Betsy not only crafted a solar system but she also created a 'handelier' (a chandelier made of multi-colored stuffed hands) and turned our back wall into a larger than life replica of Joanna's face.
Betsy's art will be on display and for sale until the first week of August!
