The Artist. Conrad Jon Godly. 1962, Switzerland. Painter. Conrad Jon Godly’s nature paintings are of a sublime that escapes romanticization. Their spirit is the result of ambitions beyond beauty. Thick layers of oil paint are applied onto the canvas.

Talk about chunky painting.  These pieces by artist Jon Godly are unreal.  I can’t tell if it’s paint or frosting.  Either way they are sublime to look at and take in.  I love the thicker palette strokes similar to Van Gogh’s impasto paintings on canvas.  This ain’t no watercolor.  This is Spectacular!

Impressionist paintings in Denver

We went to see the “Her Paris” art exhibit this week here in Denver. Truly mesmerizing paintings from women artists from the 19th Century. We always hear of the male impressionist painters, but rarely the women. There are over 80 paintings from different female artists on display during the exhibit that runs from now until Jan 14, 2018. Go if you can. It is a treat to the eyes and soul.
