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'.

I visited Shaanxi Art Museum which presented a career survey of artist Xu Qinsong. These are his most recent large-scale Landscape Paintings. They reminded me of the Hudson River School painters in their grandeur and I loved the handling of mist. I'll post some of the smaller works later this week.
