Oh, these paintings by Thomas Darnell are shockingly beautiful, aren’t they? And look how huge they are too! Can you imagine the impact they have in a room? I kind of can’t get over their size. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like them.

What’s the most blow-you-away artwork you’ve seen in the last while? I’m in the mood to be wowed!

Anything by Georgia O’Keeffe wows me – and some of hers are quite large as well.

I adore those paintings. I would so love to try painting something like that. Imagine losing yourself deep in a bunch of roses or the details in a tulip – now that would be heavenly. They remind me of Bobbie Burgers art which I also adore. Here is a link:

These are gorgeous! I have a peony plant in my yard that gives me blooms this exact color and it’s my very favorite.
