notable: artist janet hill



because sometimes things make me smile, oohh & ahhh and i want to share them with you!

this amazing artist has been a long-favorite of mine. her paintings are soulful and quiet and tell a story.
a story i'd like to read!
i'd like to curl up on that couch, stir a cup of cocoa in that kitchen, listen to the tales that woman has to tell.

enjoy the work of janet hill. here's her blog.
and here's her beautiful etsy shop with shelves full of eye candy {i.e. prints to buy}!
*note: the captions are the painting's title and link to the shop listing

it's a grueling choice but i think my favorites are these top two.....
goldfinch
the party in the next room
hot chocolate
saturday morning at pemberley flat
trouble arrives
{p.s i wish dressing like that ↑ was a reality for me.}
lady gertrude's decadent brunch with flora and fauna
snow white
minnie was an aggressive driver

the magic spice cake
the secret diary of snow white
the matriarch of black walnut manor. silke was an inventor, an amateur ornithologist and kept a well ordered house
snow white's vanity
general custard
cherries jubilee
the chocolate one with sprinkles
portrait - the english major
i could go on and on and on.
isn't her work entirely lovely?
what's your favorite?

  7. Oh my goodness! I almost can't choose a favorite! I like the one with the sewing machine, and the one with laundry hanging up in the sweet kitchen, and the donut shop. Ok, I like them all!:) Thank you for introducing me to this! Happy Saturday!
