On Monday night I was invited to visit Eva Faye´s studio in downtown New York. Being welcomed into someone's studio can sometimes feel like you are invited into their heart, it has something sacred about it. This is how it felt like with Eva a heartwarming moment.
I thought that the white and the transparent serious fit beautifully here as my Merry Christmas greeting to you. Eva Faye has a gentle and very careful thought out touch to her work, I can contemplate her deep consideration in every stroke or puncture. She works mostly with oil, pencil, charcoal and lately vellum.
Please consider that the pictures I took make her work look a lot darker than they are in real.
This series is probably my favorite. It has a mystical ethnical beauty lingering over them.

Eva Faye grew up in Norway but has lived in America most of her grown up life.
In February 2011 Norwegians will have a chance to see Eva Faye and Frank Brunner's work at Bærum Kunstforening.
Wishing you all a wonderful Holliday
With CHRISTMAS Love
