please join me in appreciating joan brown, a painter who lived and worked in northern california.
i like the color, patterns and "flat-ness" of joan's work...especially the subtle details when you take a moment to absorb the whole image.
from the san francisco MOMA site: "Painter and assemblage artist Joan Brown is considered part of the second generation of the Bay Area Figurative movement. Her best-known paintings prominently feature autobiographical scenes and symbols related to her spirituality."
