Art Love: Mary Sauer

It's no secret that I love oil painting, not only because I paint with them but because there is this beautiful luxurious quality about them.  There is this ability to subtly capture a moment that lasts forever making it timeless.   I would love to hang one of these paintings in my sitting room or maybe even a study..now i just need one of those fancy rooms.

Mary Sauer is a New York artist that has an impressionistic approach to oil painting with a great representation of color balance, proportion and value of relationships .. basically a very technical oil painter with a high level of technique which I admire completely and maybe even a little jealous of.

These could almost be photographs, so beautiful. All the subjects look so sad and thoughtful. I'd love to sit down next to that last one and pick her brain. xo

These are gorgeous! They are so realistic that they almost look like photographs. I think the 2nd one is my favorite, but I really like them all.
