Running long distances at times places me in a meditative state. I pass the same landscape each day, but everyday I see something new. About halfway through my run on this particular day, I was struck by the immense clouds which were fluffy white with a hint of an oncoming storm. I came home to my studio and got to work. The dreamlike rolling hills of western Pennsylvania serve as daily inspiration and motivation, to run as well as paint!

"Barcelona dogs 2, 2015" by Sasha Sokolova
Sasha Sokolova recently worked on the all-painted animated film Loving Vincent. This piece is her take on a summer scene near the beaches of Barcelona. Just back from the beach is a park developed when Barcelona hosted the Olympics and where people often walk or picnic or ride a bike. This “couple” caught her eye because they were both older and from another time, walking across a modern development in Barcelona. A mix of new and old.
