Up High in a Turret

Imagine the inhabitant of this sherbet toned Victorian charmer. She paints away the days high in the turret, her yorkie by her side. Oops, I daydream...
Isn't this painting wonderful? It is created by the artist Kim VanDerHoek. All Kim's work seems magical to me~ soft, and soothing yet powerful in message and technique. Visit her lovely blog to see her other fine work, you'll love her paintings too. I must get back to my turret in the sky.......

Never purchased art from a gallery before but this makes me reconsider- I love art and especially this beautiful painting.

I agree with you, her paintings are so beautiful and the images seem to be relaxed yet bold.

Lovely! The entire painting is beautiful, but I love that you can see all the brush strokes.

Oil paintings always fascinated me. This particular painting is very soothing.

Hi Karen,

I stopped by your blog the other day after you left me a comment about posting my painting here. My son must have distracted me because I got side-tracked and forgot to leave a comment here and say thank you.

Thank you very much for posting my painting and for the sweet write-up too! I appreciate it so very much.

That is a beautiful painting, but anywhere is a magical place to be when your yorkie is by your side, it doesn't have to be a turret!

Wouldn't being able to decorate the turret room (with presumably 360 degrees of windows) be awesome?

Brayton Homestead Interiors said...

yes, it would be awesome to decorate Jeanne! What would you do?
