Blue and White Monday: Christina Baker

5.02.2016

White Mangrove by Christina Baker

Christina Baker paintings aren't easy to obtain. Oftentimes, customers call one of the two galleries in which Christina shows, and purchase a painting before it arrives sight unseen.  It's not unusual for all of her paintings to be spoken for before they ever reach the gallery.

This doesn't surprise me a bit.  Christina's work is masterful.  Each piece she creates is breathtaking.  I'm fortunate enough to enjoy three of her paintings in my entry, and I'm touched by them every day.

The work I'm sharing today is some of her newest, and of everything here, only White Mangrove (which is amazing and has the most gorgeous combination of blues I can image) is still available.

Since I've gotten to know Christina, her work has evolved.  I'm impressed by the way she consistently pushes herself to grow. While her work grows and changes, it stays recognizable as hers.  I see artists on Instagram who copy her paintings, but they're always poor imitations that don't capture the ethereal quality Christina conveys.  This is a topic I'll be sharing about soon, but for now, you can read some about it here.

Monday is usually reserved for just blue and white, but I can't resist adding these.

For more on Christina, see my Q&A here.  She shares lots of interesting information about herself, and there are many other spectacular paintings to see.
