the stunning work of
~ Bridget Couc ~
Her paintings are dreamy and ethereal, especially the ones including patisserie and flowers as a subject matter. So luscious, it will make you hungry and want to smile. Who could resist these pretty painting confections?
Hope you will enjoy peeking into Bridget's world. For those who don't her yet, it is my great pleasure to introduce you to Bridget Couc, a painter living in France, her work first came to my attention through Ulla's blog.
R) Welcome Bridget! I'm glad you could join us today to share a bit about your life and inspiration. Can you tell us a bit about your background, did you grow up in an artistic family? Did you attend Art School?
B) Yes I did, but a musical background. My father, a dentist, is an excellent jazz musician, he plays tenor saxophone and composes, he has a good reputation in the world of jazz. My sister is a music teacher, she writes song-books, too and she was married to a composer. I'm the only painter.
B) I had a love at first sight for still life while visiting the museum in Berlin, especially for Stosskopff, a large table with a large white cloth, delicate glasses and a mild shimmering silver. Now I'm just painting the culmination of everything that I like to paint, I try to give little pieces of joy and beauty. Of course, I like to paint landscapes, portraits and many other things too, but right now, maybe it's tea~time for me!.
B) At this moment I love this small canvas (above), a simple dahlia in a porcelain cup decorated with a red landscape, I like when the colors start to vibrate gently, as if they met each other and a certain mystery emerged from the familiar objects.
B) Painting has taught me concentration and this soothing impression to do what I was made for.
R) What is the most exciting thing that has happened to you because of your artwork so far?
B) It's always a delight when someone tells me that my painting has touched them!
R) Well Bridget, I can assure you that your work does touch many people! Thank you for meeting me here today, for your time. It has been a pleasure to learn about the person behind the paint brush, the woman who creates these magnificent works of art!
