Anne Blair Brown, OPA

“When I was a child, it seems I didn’t talk very much. My father would tell me that when he looked into my eyes to see if anyone was in there he could almost hear the wheels turning. What was I thinking? I have no idea, but I guess that I was practicing to listen and observe. Developing this third eye was key to my growth as an artist, and it is what fuels my pursuit to document everyday life through painting.”

About the Artist

Anne Blair Brown was born in North Kingstown, Rhode Island and currently resides in Nashville, TN. Her work centers on both rural and urban landscapes, people, and interior spaces. While she enjoys the quiet solitude of her studio, she delights in painting on location. Brown says, “Painting from life creates an intimacy with the subject that heightens my sense of spontaneity and emotion. That energy is translated to the canvas in and out of the studio.”
