Art: Samantha French

Latest work by Brooklyn based painter, Samantha French. Originals (most are sold) can be purchased here while prints can be purchased here. You know that feeling of utter calm and solitude you get when you're submersed in water? It's one of my very favorite moments, the silence right before I'm forced to push through the suface for air. These paintings are not only technically impressive (have you ever tried painting water, it's tough!) but I adore the subject and want to be there. Samantha has been painting pool scenes for some time- check out the full collection here.

I can't really explain why, but I love these. I think it's exactly what you said: cause they depict what it's like to totally submerge in water, which is an incredible feeling. I also love the vibrant colors.
