Ajumma's paintings

Here are the three paintings I chose to take from Ajumma's place last night. Two of them are landscape-style, so click on those images to enlarge them, then right-click and hit "open image in new tab" to see them at their truly awesome, 1500-pixel width. The third image is portrait-style (vertical), so there's no need to click on that one; I've displayed it here at the usual 600-pixel width. This first one caught my eye for its use of color:

The second one struck me because of how authentically it captured a rustic, possibly rural Korean scene, making me feel as if I were really there:

This last one reminded me strongly of Europe—specifically, of a Howard Behrens painting. Behrens has done plenty of European scenes; his command of light and shadow is impressive (see here, for example). Ajumma's painting managed to evoke something very similar for me.

She makes me want to follow the path in the last two. That takes talent!
