Get out your calendars and mark down Friday, May 20th! My dear friend and Seattle based artist, Jeanne McKay Hartmann will be making a special 1-day only appearance at Nest Inspired Home in Rye, New York between 1-5pm. Her visit coincides with the Rye Home Tour, so tour the houses in the morning and then stop by before or after lunch to meet her, say hello and see her sought after watercolors!
Jeanne’s mother always carried crayons in her handbag to keep her daughter’s busy hands occupied. Portraits of Queen Elizabeth, the family dog and flowers drawn on restaurant paper placemats were the artist’s first works. Today, she creates commissioned pieces for private clients such as Aerin Lauder and custom paintings for retailers, including her favorite Seattle shop, Watson Kennedy and now on the East Coast at Nest Inspired Home. She is known for happy, vibrant watercolors that capture the beauty of life’s everyday moments and has been touted by both Town & Country and Elle Decor.
For this upcoming event, Jeanne has created a capsule collection, especially for Nest Inspired Home, based upon our conversations about how people live and what they appreciate in our corner of the world. Below is a glimpse of what will be in store. If something captures your eye, please contact Nest Inspired Home directly via firstname.lastname@example.org or 914.921.NEST (6378) to ensure you can have one of Jeanne’s original paintings! Her art is widely followed on Instagram, and her original works sell quickly, so don’t miss this opportunity! In addition to her framed pieces, Jeanne will be painting live, in store, from 1-5pm, creating original 4 x 6 watercolors of monogramed, flower-filled tote bags, ready to carry into summer. Each work is “one of a kind”, and would make a perfectly lovely and unique hostess gift to give this season. Or birthday gift. Or a little gift for yourself. Take a peek at what she created for me and for the ladies at Nest Inspired Home! I will be there the entire time and would love to personally introduce you to Jeanne!!! A native Pacific Northwest girl, Jeanne lives in Seattle with her husband when she’s not packing her brushes and sketchbook for Paris, Nantucket, Sun Valley or other faraway places. Trust me when I tell you she is the girlfriend you would all love to have! We are so fortunate that Jeanne loves New York City and Nantucket and is fitting in a trip to Rye between visiting both places!
Jeanne’s work has become so popular, that her wait list to begin new work starts in early 2017. As a special treat to my readers, both local or virtual, she is reserving 6 spots at the beginning of the year for custom work. If you have something special in mind….a house portrait, pet portrait, favorite vacation place, garden or bar cart vignette or something else….please contact Nest Inspired Home to reserve one of these coveted spots!
I can’t wait to see you all and introduce you to my darling, talented friend! See you Friday, May 20th between 1-5pm!
