Ana Teresa Fernandez is an artist that received her M.F.A from the San Francisco Art Institute. She was also a professor for the University of San Francisco as well as U.C. Berkeley. Ana has also created work with graphite, ink, and even some sculptures created out of broken glass, resin, and hot glue. I am most impressed with her oil paintings. She has a photorealistic style, and as you can see from the images she has mind-blowing control over the medium. Quite often I see artists try to render water, only for it to end up looking like sheets of warped metal, however Ana and the work of Linnea Strid show what a skilled painter can do when set out to recreate even the most difficult of subjects. Make sure you check out her website for the rest of her very impressive body of work. If you happen to be in the San Francisco area, Ana currently has some work on view at La Galeria de la Raza until April 16th.
