This morning I was reminded of the painting instructor at the community college I attended. Her name is Merit Berg, and she had an fantastic exhibition there while I was enrolled. To this day, it was one of the most impactful moments art has had on my life. The paintings, which are huge, stopped me dead in my tracks and I felt like I just starred at them for hours. The detailed garments are unbelievable. I also love the mix of modern shapes with a very romantic painting style decorating a beautiful waste landscape.
