Artist Spotlight // Jen Garrido

So, did we all watch the Academy Awards last night? I looked forward to it all
week and it did not disappoint. Seth Macfarlane kept the affair classier than I thought
he would (though, I wish he was a little more crass) and I added about 10 movies to my
"Must Watch" list. Amour, Life of Pi, Beasts in the Southern Wild... I can't wait to rent
these flicks! We will have to get to the fashions of the evening later this week but
serious nods to Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams... those ladies looked foxxx-ay! 

So, I just recently discovered artist, Jen Garrido. I am obsessed with her works of
art and think they are perfect color inspiration boards. The colors she infuses into the
canvas are breathtaking and this mint green and aqua inspired piece is my fave
so I had to draw up an inspiration board to boot. 

What do you guys think? Pretty great pieces, right? I would love to hang the below piece above a white brick fireplace. Gorgeous!
