I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two in one of the magical, dazzling illustrated landscapes by artist Sara Boccaccini Meadows. There is so much happening in her beautiful work and I love it up to the tiniest detail! I remember sharing Sara’s work back in 2016 and it’s such a delight to see how her paintings have evolved over the years. For more, visit her website and follow her on Instagram.
It wasn’t that long ago when I shared Jane Newland’s magical illustrations on the blog. But the most amazing landscapes keep showing up on her website all the time. So enchanting, so beautiful! Her forests, filled with countless shades of green, give me an urge escape city life and surround myself with nature for a week or so.
The whimsical work of Deb Garlick makes me long for afternoon walks in snowy woods. Wander around in silent white and experience the peace & calm I feel when looking at her beautiful paintings. With a modest color palette and playful figures, Deb brings so much character to these sceneries! Besides landscapes, Deb also creates stunning portraits that have that same delightful style.
Portland-based artist Cathy McMurray taught art on high school for ten years before focusing on her own projects. Now she creates the most beautiful dreamscapes on wood, rich with color and character, inspired by the mountains and open sea of the Pacific Northwest. Love!
Cathy likes to work with differen materials and also creates weavings, installations and paintings on (eco friendly) paper. Have a peek in her website for many more.
Try staring at a painting by Clair Bremner for some time and I’ll guarantee that you will find yourself caught in a daydream, absorbing all the colors and details of her one of a kind dreamscapes. These are magic! Working from Melbourne, Clair gets inspired by nature from her surroundings and her imagination.
My paintings are both a direct reflection of my surroundings and an imaginary world – a secret garden that exists in my mind. A whimsical place that I can go to escape and be lost within.
