Welcome to another week of Museum Monday. This is one of the  are pieces that I have in my collection. Every week bringing an awareness to the many different artists out there in the world. There are so many, with a variety of specialties.

Several years ago Meadow was one artist that became an obsession. Her work goes beyond just painting, but she also makes the costumes that are used in her paintings. I am the proud owner of many of her paintings. The detail of this painting is of the harp player. It hangs in my living room. All the paintings that are in my home are period pieces Meadow painted of the Revolutionary period of United States. I just love the authentic look of the characters in her art. She knows how to capture the people, and place them in an intimate moment. The viewer feels like they have just walked in on a moment that was a private one. The fabrics and colors of the materials that are used are so spot on with the depiction. The dress of the harp player looks soft and has so much volume. The look of the  gentleman’s cotton shirt looks like it has been line dried. Soft after wearing, but just a little stiff when donning the shirt. The light coming in through the window is diffused just enough to cast an aura around the harp player. Love your work Meadow!
