This Lovely Life: Janet Hill

3 Sep

I love artwork that transports me into a different world.  The paintings of Ontario artist Janet Hill  gives us a peek at a sweet and beautiful life, where all is loveliness and cheerful color.

Goldfinch

Her figures, lovely and graceful, entrance and enchant, her palette of sepias punctuated with bright, saturated color takes us back in time like faded photographs.

Giraffes

General Custard

Hers is a world that feels like that magical afternoon hour.. you know the one.. when the sunlight is just the right shade, streaming through the window and giving everything in its path a magical glow.  A world that is accessibly glamorous, where even the most mundane task is done with delicious joie de vivre!

Entanglement

Seriously, doesn’t her work just make you smile?  See more of it on her website and in her Etsy shop– lots of beautiful, affordable prints to be found!  Perfect for girlie girls, big and small.

    Her first painting is magnificent. Now I am craving a lazy Saturday morning in THAT bed with THAT wallpaper and a book so good I can’t put it down.

    These are fantastic, love the colours. The coffee grinder is a nice touch……and that pink toaster!

      Wouldn’t a pink toaster be a lovely greeting every morning?😉
