rebekka seale's watercolor art (2)

i love to see little snippets of life behind an artist’s work. when i discovered rebekka seale’s watercolor illustrations, i almost fainted from the southern sweetness dripping from them. they are light and airy, quiet and quaint.

downton abbey’s violet crawley | heirloom silk scarf | lady mary sketch card | downton abbey card

it’s no secret that i love downton abbey (my most favorite tv series in the history of all tv shows). i was smitten when i found this heirloom scarf over on creature comforts and loved exploring the handmade world of other downton abbey fans. if you’re a fan, you also must check out these amazing (and hilarious!) printable downton abbey paperdolls.

unconventional greenhouses and beautiful gardens galore are what you’ll find in jeremy miranda’s shop and on his website and blog. the way he lights these warm-summery-night-greenhouses up from the inside, seem to deeply draw me in to each of his paintings. with warm muted colors and striking emeralds and olive tones, i long to visit such peaceful planthouse.

last week, i was so excited to have my dear friend katie daisy and her country-folk-singing-beau, luke redfield, come stay with us. they were able to take a quick break from their road trip around the country to swing by our humble abode and rest for a bit.

for those of you who might not be familiar with katie’s work, you should hop over and take a glance at it before reading the rest of this post. she’s not only the most talented artist i know, but her work represents a much bigger purpose. beneath the fluttering butterflies and spring colors lies a deeper meaning. each piece overflows with katie’s beautiful soul and longing to make the world a more joyful place. her work is heartfelt, stunningly beautiful and an inspiration to so many people!

much like her artwork, katie is full of life, energy and good vibes. she is ever so kind, lovely and intentional with her day to day life. i am so blessed to have her as a friend, and as i know many of you enjoy her work, i thought you might like to take a glimpse into the few days we spent together!

along with our many adventures of visiting the farmer’s market, walking amongst the lavender fields and feeding the ostriches (say, what?) we of course took some time to paint!

we stayed up late (really late) a few nights and painted together. i’m no expert so i enjoyed watching katie’s process and tried to soak up every little detail along the way. can you guess which side of the table i was painting on? :)

i especially enjoyed watching katie prep some art for a new project she’s working on. she looks pretty good at my computer, right? i’m thinking she should just move in..

and perhaps our favorite moment? when we realized we’re going to have to start collecting sunglasses to use as camera filters. (can you see me in the reflection? click on the picture to make it bigger!)

apparently, i was in the mood for rich hues today. philip govedare’s landscape paintings fit right in and i’m drawn in by the detail and depth to each of them. i see iceland, arizona and maybe even canada. what about you?

britt hermann’s artwork (discovered via homeground) stands out to me in a beautiful way. something about the darkness draws me in and makes me want to know more. britt shares with us that she loves working with her fingers, charcoal and a good cup of tea, i’m betting that all three were involved in the making of this piece. i love it.
