Some gorgeous images from 2 artists I admire, Susan Jamison and Irene Hardwicke Olivieri. While the subject matter and images are on the same wavelength (the body, our relationship to love/nature/the animal world) the execution is very different. Jamison works in a very delicate but realistic style, primarily with egg tempera on panel. Olivieri works with oil on wood, often on recycled pieces of furniture or found wood, in a slightly looser style that evokes folk art. I love their work!
