Last week I got the most exciting news ...
I won the giveaway on Laura Trevey's Bright, Bold & Beautiful blog! It is a gorgeous painting by Linda Donohue. I can't tell you how incredibly exited I was!!!
It arrived this week and it is more beautiful in person and I can't wait to find the perfect place to hang it!
If you are not familiar with Linda Donohue, she is a local San Francisco painter and furniture designer (and furniture store owner!). She specializes in painting abstract and equestrian art with acrylics on canvas. Her art is sold through through her San Francisco showroom, galleries, designer showrooms, furniture stores and the Atlanta and High Point furniture markets. Her furniture designs have been featured on HGTV and Extreme Makeover and her showroom has been shopped by Sherwin Williams to determine current color forecasts. Her art has been purchased by HGTV Secrets of a Stylist's show and the editors of Better Home and Gardens Magazine. She also sells her paintings through her Etsy shop.
Here are a few of her upcoming shows:
- Rochester Museum of Fine Art Permanent Collection Opening March 3rd

And speaking of talented artists, Laura Trevey who hosted the giveaway is also an incredibly talented artist (and one of the nicest and most positive bloggers). I have posted about her beautiful watercolors before (here) when I purchased her painting of the honeysuckle and
orange tangerine dress:
Laura sells her watercolors through her Etsy shop as well and if you are not familiar with her work you should definitely check her out. She paints everything from simple sketches to beautiful abstracts to custom renderings of your home. Here is a quick sampling of some of her work:
Hope you are having a beautiful weekend! xo
