Chelsea James

I am not sure how I came across Chelsea James' portfolio, but I am in love with her work. Her still lifes are so subtle and breathtaking. I thought for sure she must have studied at Boston University's College of Fine Art because her technique is so classic and wellll very 'BU'.

These paintings make me want to be back in painting class...mixing colors for hours, studying the highlights and shadows, the smell of linseed oil masking the air. Then having your dreams crushed when the professor rips it apart in critique. Good thing I became a graphic designer.
