The Friday Gallery - Andrea Edwards





Andrea's work has the violent and pronounced brush strokes much like Van Gogh's work, only hers manage to keep that feminine quality to them, making her pictures have a softer quality. She mixes bright vibrant colors with much darker ones mixing the emotions like joy and sadness. They retain their beauty, their individuality. They aren't slave to modernism nor trapped by the confines of classics.

I haven't stopped by here for a while but it was a very nice stop today. Andrea's art is fantastic. And, I see you are reading James Baldwin who is one of my favorite authors. His short story, "Sonny's Blues" is one of the best short stories ever written.

This is the only 2nd book of his I read. I found it harder to get through Sonny's Blues and admit I felt a bit perplexed by taht story mainly for the reason that minus the drugs I am Sonny.
