My New Art from Kerry Steele

This past weekend, I welcomed a spectacular piece of art into my home from Virginia artist Kerry Steele:


GORGEOUS. I spotted this piece in her shop and the colors were the exact mix that I've been working with in our basement. I think this piece was fated to live with me.

But the most fun part about this purchase is that I actually went to pick it up in Fredericksburg, so I got to meet Kerry! Y'all, you walk into her house and there are paintings everywhere. It would be very convenient if I could create pieces like hers whenever I needed one. But alas, I don't have that talent.

But Kerry sure does...a sampling from her Etsy shop:


I saw this one above hanging...and besides the one I purchased, this is my absolute favorite. Those colors!! If I had that damn money tree, I would be buying this one in a heartbeat. So, basically, I want it is what I'm saying.




Kerry is as sweet and likeable as her painting as colorful. It was a total delight to meet her...especially since art is such a personal thing - I like knowing the hands that created it.

So now I have two large works in my possession...both by Virginia artists. I sniff the start of my collection...
