Hadley Hutton

It's been awhile since I talked about Hadley Hutton and since she has added many new works to her collection, today feels like a good time to share her with you again. Are you familiar with this American artist? Her illustrations are beautiful and her encaustic paintings are my favorites - I own a few originals that I've purchased over the years and though they still sit in my cellar waiting to be unpacked once we finally move, at least I know they are there and I feel excited just thinking that soon I may be able to display them again! It looks like we may be moving on September 1st though we won't know for sure until next week - but once I know for sure it will be happy dance time!

It's been such a hassle trying to find a permanent space, we've been living in what was our vacation apartment for nearly a year and it's very cramped for a couple both working from home. I've whined about this enough (blah blah blah), I know, but your friendly blogger here is reaching her tipping point because living in limbo with boxes unpacked is frustrating despite how hard I try to put a positive spin on it. If you've ever lived "between homes" then you certainly understand my feelings! I just want to see and display my "stuff". It feels a bit lonely not having access to the things that inspire me the most like my books, craft supplies, fabrics... I even miss my Epson color printer and I want to unpack all of my clothes, shoes and handbags. I'm getting bored with my wardrobe!

But yes, enough complaining from me -- back to the lovely Hadley and her truly inspirational work which is available in her etsy shop and on her website as prints, originals, cards, even pillows! About her style her bio says, "Hadley's work is a blend of traditional painting and modern design. She draws inspiration from Asian patterns and motifs, Victorian die cuts, and geometric designs. Her work explores nature’s beauty, people’s influence on their surroundings, and the environment's influence on people. The works are layered with colored pencil and watercolor pencil drawings, ink, archival digital media, pastels and encaustics."

Pretty!
