Today’s ARTLOVE is all about Lisa Morgan from Australia. I discovered Lisa’s work many years ago and was instantly enchanted. She’s got it all: a fabulous colour sense, energy, killer compositions... swoon. And from the limited interactions we’ve shared, she seems like the kind of person I’d love to sit down and have a drink with. If you’re not already following her, head on over to her page and see all of her glorious paintings for yourself. @lisamorganart 
Please tell me:
1. A favourite work of art:
Jacobs Ladder
Helen Frankenthaler (seen in the flesh and I thought that’s how heaven must feel on first landing!)
2. An artist you love:
Milton Avery
3. A great book:
‘What I Loved’ by Siri Hustvedt
4. A favourite snack:
Fresh Sourdough bread with the best butter you can afford!
5. Where would you next like to travel?
Back to my homeland New Zealand to travel both islands extensively 
6. Something new you’d like to learn:
The flute- I have always wanted to learn music properly and play this instrument •

Self-isolation Day 5. 
We returned from the States last Thursday and have been holed up in our house since then. Taking it seriously. Family and friends are bringing groceries which is very kind! People ask us if we’re bored to tears but so far so good 💪 None of us get bored easily. I paint by myself all day anyway so I’m actually having more interaction then normal. ; ) 
Alas, I’m not able to go to the studio but here is a painting I was working on before our trip. It’s 36” square. Since I haven’t been able to work on it I’ve been staring at this image for quite a while. 👀 Normally I’d have worked over it a fair bit by now but I have to say, it is really growing on me! I love the energy but think there is still a cohesion and composition in the midst of all that frenetic line work. I may keep it like this. 🤷‍♀️
Anyway, I hope you’re all well and staying put. Kindness + gratitude. 💓💓💓
