Meeting some happy collectors.

How did you develop your unique style?
Anne Blair Brown: The first step to developing my style was to learn the fundamentals of painting. For me that was design, values, color, and brushwork. After I got confident in these realms, that freed me up to be more playful with my color and more expressive with my brushwork.

How do you find inspiration?
Anne Blair Brown: Since I was disciplined in learning the fundamentals of painting for so long, I now look at most any subject and find inspiration. If I focus on light and atmosphere and not necessarily the subject, everything can be turned into a painting. Light hitting a trashcan in an alley can be as attractive to me as a field of Sunflowers in Tuscany.
