I love these paintings, to be on exhibit in Laguna at Sue Greenwood Fine Art. The first one has such an Edward Hopper feeling about it. Found at Tales from the Loft. This blogger has a great description of the first painting: "Down the street at Sue Greenwood, Sally Storch’s work is being featured. Her paintings remind me of Julianne Moore’s 50s-genre movies — Technicolor on the surface but simmering with emotional turmoil underneath."
The second painting is by Francis Livingston. I could look at this painting for hours and hours. Also, it makes me want to go an old-timey amusement park.
How I wish I were in southern California and could see this exhibit!
