Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

Oil, paint, chinese ink on canvas. Some of Thierry De Cordier's dark and moody seascapes were a provided a moment that paint could work. The images of the roiling sea were really powerful, but when the ship was inserted, see below, I lost interest. Those paintings make better sense as photographs.
