Inspiring Artist: Christina Baker

I've been having a love affair with abstract art lately. I find myself being drawn to it over and over- and while it's true, there is A LOT of bad abstract art out there, I'm also overwhelmed by the abundance of really GOOD art I've been finding. (Thanks in part to Instagram!)

Recently, I've been trying my hand at painting some of my own, and let me tell you, it is TOUGH. But I love it. I mean love, love, love it. My chops need about 9999 more hours of practice, but the practice, while challenging, is incredibly meditative to me. So I'll keep going for now. 

In the meantime, I thought it would be great to share some of these extraordinary artists i've been finding. First up is Christina Baker. When I found her work, I spent hours looking through her past paintings. Something about her style in particular sings to my soul. And isn't that what art is all about?? Enjoy.
