Lucy Mink's Art Influences

I first saw Lucy Mink's charming paintings on FB. The color, the patterns, the quiet narratives caught my eye.

Her Statement:
I am consumed by combinations of color and form as a visual, abstract diary of my life, where time does not belong to me, but to others.
I am frequently organizing their things while they dance. I am in a situation.

TheSoundOnTheGround 24 by 22 1/2 in oil on linen in panel




I Need A Place To Put Some Things that We Weren't Allowed To Talk About

Lucy's art influences:
Matisse
my kids


What I hear and think about and look at:
David Bowie..... often
The Rolling Stones- 'Get off of my Cloud'
Looking at books with unusual trees with my 4 year old
How a 6 year old sees the world.
What to make for dinner that my kids will eat.
Everything while out walking.
