I don't know how I came across Donna Lacey Derstine's lovely paintings - probably delivered to me via Google. However they arrived, I'm proud to show them here.
If I could wave a magic wand, this is how I would paint. As it is, I can't, and must simply sit and gaze in awe at her evocative images. There aren't many artists producing this kind of work, particularly the Colonial-themed folk art, although her impressionist landscapes are equally delightful. She will be passionately collected, mark my words.
You can see a huge display of her work at Donna Lacey Derstine. Isn't this kind of art perfect for the season? Thank you, Donna.
Have a wonderful fall weekend, everyone. If you're up my way, stay warm.
