As many of you know, my hubby George and I have been planning to move to the Pacific Northwest, pretty much since we started dating a little over a year ago. But first we had to #1, get engaged, #2, sell his house in Tulsa, #3 plan a wedding, #4 get married and #5 sell my house in Jacksonville. We have finally accomplished that last objective ( well, almost, our closing is May 18th ) and are planning the next stage of our life together.
I have an ongoing list of artists I’d like to feature on Artsy Forager, but sometimes fate steps in and pushes a certain artist ahead of the rest. I happened to be checking out a design blog I follow and spotted a painting the blogger had purchased from Seattle artist, Julia Hensley. I surfed on over to her website and was impressed by what I found. I discovered via Facebook, that today is Julia’s birthday!
So, in honor of Julia’s birthday, our upcoming move to the Northwest and just because her stuff is just genuinely awesome, I’m sharing her work with you.
Chinatown, oil on masonite, 13 1/2″ x 11″
65th and Roosevelt, gouache collage on bristol board, 9″ x 12″
Hot Day Bremerton, gouache on bristol board, 7 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
( this might be my favorite )
Flat Iron, acrylic on bristol board, 8″ x 12″
Sunday Downtown, acrylic on paper, 19″ x 24″
Hope you enjoyed meeting Julia, be sure to wish her a happy birthday!
