Art Love : Françoise de Felice

Hello friends,

How are you? Spring is blooming all around us here in Oregon and it is truly so beautiful! My kiddos are finally all healthy (knock on wood) and we are looking forward to a trip to Disneyland for Grace’s 8th birthday in April! The Claire Bear will stay behind this time with her grandparents, so the trip should be a tad more relaxing.

So, I’m still working through my Jeanne Oliver online art course where we focus on one master artist each week. It’s been a very inspiring process! One week, our teacher was Kate Thompson and she introduced the artist, Françoise de Felice to us. Oh my! I’m in love. (Thank you Kate!) Her dreamy work is amazing…see for yourself…

Stunning right? I adore the haunting, layered mystery of her work. I could stare at each piece for hours, visually deciphering the meaning behind the expressions and gestures of her subjects. Piecing together the story and admiring the interwoven patterns and textures, the subtly of color…sigh. I told you I was in love. Totally enamored.

What do you think of her work? If you LOVE it…I dedicated an entire Pinterest board to her. Check it out here to see more of her magical creations.

Hope you having a wonderful week.

    Very, very impressive – LOVE IT!!!!!

  8. These painting are stunning.

  9. What medium does she work in?

  10. I just found out about this amazing artist. What I can’t find out is anything about her methods and procedures. What I can gleen from the Internet is she works both in oil and watercolor. I would love to discover her process and materials she uses. Any help her eyes?

    • All I know is that she works in a blend of materials, mostly in oil paint. It would appear that she also may utilize collage of fabrics or pattered papers. She also seems to do a lot of glazing to achieve subtle shifts in color. I wish I knew more too!! :)

      • Thanks for replying to my question. I am going to experiment with those materials. My primary concern is using materials that will be glued down and the. Using oil paint over these surfaces.

I would love to hear from you! What are your thoughts?
