I could write an enormous list of reasons as to why working for/with Lucy is so fun and wonderful and today was no different in proving me right to think so.
This morning when I walked into her studio, she was working furiously on a forest oil painting that is a proposal piece for a luxury high rise in Boston. She looks up from her bark, moss and tree samples she’s collected from her field research, pulls on her boots and has me follow her out to her front yard to show me all of the small details in variations of green and grey and brown in the tree bark and moss samples that are used in the process of planning and mixing the paints she would use for just this one work alone. Lucy has three major projects she’s working on in the midst of all of the conferences and meetings and other things she has to juggle but what is always amazing to me is her patience and intense attention to detail that comes so naturally to her - both of which are needed to produce successful realist drawings and paintings.
I am so excited to see this finished painting and the rest of her graphite tree drawings that will be on display as a part of her “Witnesses” series at the @cosogallery in May. When you look at a drawing or painting by Lucy, you don’t just get the face value or a beautifully rendered tree (albeit necessary) but you also get the dedication to the discipline that a select few realist artists, like Lucy, put into practice today
