Elizabeth Bauman On Etsy

I've been a fan of Elizabeth Bauman for a while now, but I realized this afternoon that I have not yet written about her work! I find her images beautiful and haunting.

I love this original painting called The Long Wait, for lots of reasons. I love the hazy quality of it. I love the shadow of the dog on the wall, a lot. It might be my favorite detail. I love the lady's perfectly green dress. And I love the mysterious sort of narrative. Who or what is she waiting for? We may never know. Or perhaps only we can answer that question...?

This painting is also available as a limited edition art print in Bauman's Etsy shop. Enjoy!
