Un Cadeau Pour Vous



For some time now, Jennifer Beaudet and I have been virtual friends. She is an artist whose  femininity infuses her charming work.

I am particularly drawn to her "vintage" women in the process of dressing, in their private bubbles of what appears to be preparations for an adventure of some sort. Somehow they seem to waver between hope and disappointment -- melancholy and anticipation.  I'm not an art critic, but those were the sentiments her paintings evoked in me and I find it fascinating when a work of art triggers an emotion.


In a recent conversation with Jennifer I asked her if she would allow me to offer one of her paintings as a special giveaway to you. To my delight, she said yes. In fact, she suggested a choice of cadeaux for the winner: either three of her prints or one of her small paintings. The winner may choose. Pictured here are her original paintings.




Tell me please if you would like to participate and then pop over to visit Jennifer and tell her as well -- that will double your chances. While you're there you could perhaps follow her and take a peek at her etsy shop. When you see the collection of her work and her artistic range, I think you too will be seduced.

If a work of art fails to trigger an emotion - then it is not art.

I love this giveaway and I would love to win! It's funny but I posted about art as well today (a particular artist who evoked emotions in me)...her paintings as displayed here are beautiful. I will visit her site.

Lovely! We've just bought a new house, and these would look beautiful gracing the walls.

First, thank you for sharing the talent of this lovely woman. I am always amazed. Her impressionistic style is absolutely charming. I also am thrilled when I find little (small) paintings, for me it is like looking into a little world where beauty, color and light reside safe and tucked away to be enjoyed.

Glad you have introduced us to this artist's lovely work. I adore flowers and would LOVE to have one of these.

Nothing quite as relaxing as paints, paintbrushes and a new canvas, with a cup of coffee and lovely music playing.

Her paintings are lovely, please count me in!

Delana@dujour said...

Oh I so wish I could paint! I poked around her site and her shop and I've got just the spot for the one I've chosen. I live in the south of France where we have lots of sunshine, but sadly, not in my city apartment. I would love to brighten it up with one of her paintings.

Northmoon said...

These paintings are lovely, I`d be happy to hang one at my house.

Judy said...

I need something pretty to brighten my boudoir...I am over here in Canada waving my arms, saying please pick me :)

Thank you for the opportunity!

Linda Siess said...

Please count me in! What a lovely treat, and a generous one!

Vicki said...

Yes, I have had my eye on Jennifer Beaudet's art for awhile. I first started seeing her sharing on Cindy Santiago's My Romantic Home blog. I think Jennifer is a modern-day Matisse and I told her so, having recently made a small purchase. Her paintings just make me happy; they are so full of vitality and color and I, too, love her vintage ladies. Her Etsy shop has something for everyone and her prices are very fair for the beauty of the work. And, now, I've found your blog, thru her!

Vicki said...

It goes without saying in my above comment that, yes, I would most definitely like to participate in the Jennifer Beaudet Studios giveaway; count me in; I'd be thrilled to win any piece of her art, as I love ALL of it!

Pamela said...

Lovely all.

Andrea said...

Yes!
