Paintings by Ingrid Ellison

Ingrid Ellison is a friend of mine who recently moved to Maine. Since I was thinking about her today, I thought I would share with you a couple of her very beautiful paintings. The one above titled "Moving" is full of sunshine. Ingrid uses the image of a house or home often in her work. I love how she described the size of the painting on her promo post card: "sort of big...but not really really big".

This painting is titled "Living in Twilight" and hangs in the Stanford University Faculty Club, Stanford California. I think her use of color and familiar imagery in such a contemporary way is wonderful.

If you are interested in contacting Ingrid regarding her art, she can be reached at
