art show review

My first review!

“…Milillo begins her art with word thoughts — for example, ‘happiness,’ ‘gratitude,’ and ‘refuge,’ to bring emotional power to her oil paintings. Her barnscapes and landscapes have a simple serene beauty, achieved by skilled composition and muted colors, soft edges and a slow building up of paint. Her barn and house images have a solid, ‘forever,’ robust quality — total clarity, but as seen through a slightly dense atmosphere, bringing an idyllic resonance to the scenes.”
