A Time to Look Closely

Bev Doolittle – She invites another look…

The artist Bev Doolittle is known for creating images which invite the viewer to look closely, to imagine the story, to find what she has hidden behind what you see at first glance. One of my favorites pictures of hers is “No Respect” – look for it when you visit her gallery and you’ll see why.

Since it’s always interesting to hear what an artist has to say about her own image, I was intrigued to come across this video, in which she talks a little bit about her painting “Beyond Negotiations”, why she created it and the challenges of moving out of her comfort zone to do it.
