I remember that as the summer drew closer last year, I began to be drawn to art that conveyed summery and outdoorsy themes, without even realizing it... Surprisingly enough, I see that once again, it's beginning to happen this year--starting with the work of Leah Giberson
, who I found on Etsy
recently and completely fell in love with. She does these amazingly realistic, yet somehow still very painterly, images of Americana--lawn chairs, campers and RVs, swimming pools, and family homes. I enjoy all of her work for many different reasons, but I especially like her chair paintings. I see them as being like portraits, but without any people in them (and I think that they have a lot of character!). What do you think?
Take a look at some of her amazing work below, and see if you agree with me...
Beautiful, no? I want one--must have one!
You can buy prints of Giberson's work in her Etsy shop
, peruse her entire portfolio on her website
, and learn more about her daily life on her blog
. She's quite the plugged-in artist! I love that in a modern creative ;)
Have an inspiring day!
