Local artist, Christy Lemp and I met at my friend, Cindy Petters annual Valentine's Day Tea. We got to talking about my farm and her love of painting landscapes. Of course I invited her to spend some time on the farm to take pictures. She came during our lavender festival last year and produce this lovely basket of lavender.
She has agreed to allow us to reproduce the illustration for our volunteers Tshirts this year.
Make sure you check out Christy's original paintings, prints and notecards.
Local watercolor artist, Christy LempI have a love for the everyday sights: a neighbor's tulips, pumpkins on the porch, a gorgeous sunset, birds in the backyard, a mother snuggling her child. There is a certain energy in these moments, especially in the early morning or late afternoon light, that the transparency and looseness of watercolors really convey. Capturing the simplicity of these fleeting impressions is my daily passion. Life is full of goodthings. Enjoy!
