Take a peek: Janet Hill Studio

Some times you notice the art and sometimes you simply notice the effect the art has on its surroundings. I will say that I prefer the former, but I cast no aspersions on ‘working art’. Choosing art for the architecture can give a pleasing effect of uniformity. But I much prefer art that is a reflection of the owner, something that you live with like a member of your family. It makes you happy, it’s uplifting, -it’s comforting to surround yourself with images that please. Its an interesting design question worth exploring:  Does your art work for you or for your room? I will examine this subject more in my design blog, when I get it up and going, but for this little blog and pony show I just want to tickle your retinas with a peek at the wonderful Janet Hill:

Part of the appeal of Hill’s work are the titles:

I have a personal affinity to food paintings (probably because I am always hungry). I like to find cute little nooks in the kitchen in which to hang them. I seem to gravitate towards pastries and vegetables…..

A couple to, maybe, hang by a favorite spot for blogging:

All of these prints, and more, are available for purchase on Etsy. And you can visit her gallery on her website.  I adore the whimsey and  charm of her work.

    1. Curator curated.
      Her JH exhibition is far more comprehensive than my little post. A few of the pictures are new to me-I like the interiors the best. Do you have a favorite?
