Beryl Cook: May she rest in peace

Beryl Cook has passed away at the age of 81. You might wonder why I'm blogging about a painter's death, especially since I didn't know her, and hadn't heard of her until this article showed up in one of my Google alerts.
Well, strange things catch my eye when I'm reading, and the blurb accompanying the headline interested me. So I went to check it out, and followed a link to some of her paintings. Now, they might not be considered great art by those who supposedly know, but I like them. And this is why:


  1. I don't know her work, either, but her style is very much like the South American artist Botero.

  2. This is awesome art. Until I read this post, I hadn't heard of her but I can see that I would have liked her!
