"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." - Vincent Van Gogh

Inspiration: John White Alexander

The artist that you are enjoying is John White Alexander. American born, he lived between 1896 and 1915. For many of us, these were the years that our grandparents were born. 

I love the flowing dresses with their billowy nature bringing movement to his images. His subtle color palette is peaceful and calming. Diagonal lines give the images strength while the folds in the fabric suggest femininity and grace.  Strong women of grace and beauty - I love the concept!
