The good folk over at Arrested Motion just posted a nice in-depth interview with VA based artist Allison Sommers...
"When you look at her work, one would suspect that 'detail' could have been Allison Sommer’s middle name. You can’t help but move your head closer and closer to the painting and then shake it in disbelief at how meticulous her brushstrokes are. As a matter of fact, she often paints under a magnifying glass to make sure she gets the desired effect. What is even more amazing is her 'story-telling' does not suffer from this focus on details. Her paintings always seem to be a frozen moment in some epic adventure or strange circumstance that stimulates the viewer’s imagination." - Arrested Motion
