I can't recall when I first saw Janet Hill's paintings. But she is enormously talented. And if I could choose any painting by anyone I wanted, I would choose one of hers.
Here's what it says on her blog's About page:
Janet’s work is both elegant, yet whimsical, often with an underlying narrative that instantly captures the imagination. Her painting style evokes a sense of nostalgia, timeless beauty, mystery, humour, and comfort. Her work is displayed in private collections throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Some of Janet’s corporate clients include Tiffany & Co., Hallmark UK, and Harper Collins. Her work has also been featured in Matchbook Magazine, Design Sponge, This Is Glamorous, The Neo-Traditionalist, and Oh Joy! Janet lives in the beautiful city of Stratford, Ontario, Canada. She paints in a small in-house studio where she lives with her husband John, and their cat and dog.
I have always been most impressed with her kitchen paintings. Not sure quite why.
Most of all, I love her usage of color. It mesmerizes me.
She frequently has pets of all varieties in her paintings, which I also like.
Her subjects often look like they're from the fifties to me.
I got these images from her blog: Janethillstudio.com/blog.
You can buy her paintings at her Etsy shop here. And if you Google her name, you can find them many other places.
Which one is your favorite?
