Artist Jennifer Davis
I'm sure many of you know Jennifer Davis but if not, you'll want to as her work is pretty amazing. This is a painting that I purchased from her that arrived today. My current home is an 1875 carriage house with the horses names still on a beam across the ceiling in the bedroom! My last home was a huge 2 level barn that was gut renovated and just lovely.
I've always been attracted to historical homes, particularly since I was raised in South Carolina around so many gorgeous ones. I find myself loving either historical ones or extremely contemporary houses perched atop a mountain or ocean front. I think this is a good example of purchasing art that speaks to you though. This painting may not speak to you at all but because of the last two homes I've lived in, it truly means something to me. I'm bringing it with me to Germany to put in my apartment over there so that I have a piece of my life and memories around.
Here are some more paintings by Jennifer that I'm smitten by. I'd love to own them all if I could...
Jennifer also has an etsy store where she sells some of her more affordable original paintings, where I shop for them. :)
