Women Painting Women is an excellent art blog featuring just what the title implies, women artists painting women as their subjects.
The selections focus on contemporary artists working in the figurative tradition. The range of style and approach is nicely varied and the calibre of the work is consistently high.
As much as I like the fact that the blog has a theme, I find it almost irrelevant in that the site is a terrific resource of wonderful contemporary painters, thematic restrictions aside. Some of them are artists I’ve featured previously on Lines and Colors, others will undoubtedly be the subject of future posts.
Founders Sadie Valeri (my post here), Alia El Bermani and Diane Feissel have since March of 2009 been choosing a selection of superb artists, each represented by a single work, their name, basic information about the work and a link to the artist’s web presence. The images in many cases are linked to a larger version.
I had to restrain myself from posting even more sample images than I have here; Women Painting Women is a cornucopia of terrific artists.
