Illustrations that warm my magpie soul…

…on this sunny Saturday morning.

I love these watercolors by illustrator Bella Foster (a frequent contributor to the NYT)…Bella, bella indeed!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! I’m getting ready to get my hair done. (yay)

PS: I’m crushing on the plate wall and the green couch. And the mismatched bowls are beyond fabulous.

    I love these illustrations! They are incredibly Matisse like, aren’t they? Love the bright colors so much. They make me want do do things and go places and live life!

    Remember – Bardot!

    Tina Tarnoff (dare we regular readers call her “the other Tina”?)is right on the money. Matisse is the influence here, but the illustrator’s take is so unself-concious and sunny that she really makes the work her own. The plate wall and couch are very nice.

    These water colors have incredible energy for me. They’re exciting, and have movement. Totally an “UP EXPERIENCE” .. As always…I want each and every one!!
    I must move to a barn.
    xo, Penney
