I have a new favorite artist. Her name is Annie Henrie and I first saw her painting ("Streams of Mercy," below) in a juried show at BYU, and it was amazing. I came home and told J that I just found the piece that I want to have in my home. I didn't have a picture of it, so the next day I decided that I'd go take a picture of it after class, but after class it was gone! I was so upset and I was worried that I'd never see it, or figure out who painted it.
Well, about two days later, I saw a woman entering a painting ("Morning," below) into another juried show and this second painting was much like the one I saw, so I asked her. It was the same artist and I am so very glad! She gave me her website, here! She has some gorgeous paintings and I am so excited for her BFA show going up in July.
Isn't she amazing? I want a piece in my home.
