Tara Andris is a Kansas City artist who paints the most beautiful cloud and abstract scenes. She starts out by gold or silver leafing her canvases, so that after her painting process, the end result is a dreamy, luminescent and very life-like cloud pattern.
I hung my Tara Andris cloud painting in our library and I think it looks lovely in here. It might end up having another home as I hang more art and more around furniture, but it looks great here for now. It might be extra perfect here when I finish our blue glossy walls in the music room.
I love how you can see some of the texture on the surface from the leafing process.
Tara also happened to be a blog reader and she asked if I would like to give away one of her paintings. She sent me this beautiful painting called 'Brooklyn' (fitting!!) to gift one of you lovely readers.
Here's a close up. Isn't it stunning? Tara's paintings are best in rooms with great natural light.
It's like they light up in the sun! So pretty!
