Realism in Painting, Sort of

Paintings by two Virginia artists working with different senses of surrealism.  Both wonderful and as a photographer challenging.  Ann Chenoweth has long been know for her prints, but this series of paintings' surreal quality speaks to the wonder of nature.  Here the rich detail and layers of glazes and tone are the problem.  Elizabeth Coffey's paintings have a textural pattern in the surface that was hard to capture and on this blog maybe hard to see.  (click on the images to enlarge them)   Enjoy.
