When I first visited her blog, Bright, Bold & Beautiful, I was completely taken by her pieces - they are absolutely gorgeous! Each watercolor features the most amazing colors, and they all seem to have the unique ability to bring me back to a certain moment in life. Below are a couple of my favorites, and a little snippet about the memory they evoke.
Belle of the Ball.
This piece reminds me of waking up on my wedding day. All of the dresses gorgeously hung up, the bright colors, and the lovely happy feeling that you have knowing what a special day lies ahead of you!
This brings me right back to fall in Connecticut, which is where I grew up. There is nothing better than the Autumn leaves in New England.
Hosta Leaves II.
I live in Oregon and my back patio is completely hidden by large Doug Fir Trees. Nothing grows, aside from hosta! This year, I had my first successful shade garden in the back and the hosta was the absolute star. This reminds me of quiet mornings with cups of tea and the newspaper, relaxing and looking out over the garden.
In the Oregon winter, the rain creates the most beautiful pixelated images. Most people think that Portland is miserable in the winter, but there is a really beautiful, cozy feeling that all of the darkness and rain bring with them. This image does that same thing for me!
Thanks so much to Laura for her gorgeous work! Visit her shop to see more her pieces. You can find them at http://www.lauratrevey.etsy.com/.
