"Vintage Turquoise" is just lovely. Calming and a perfect color for that POP.
Congratulations Andrea on your anniversary. I started a little longer than a year ago and I don't know what I would do with my time if I did not have my blog.
Things are going your way and I wish you much success with AS&D too!

Love, love, love the piece titled "awaiting motherhood"

My oldest daughter is expecting her THIRD boy in February! This time, I am going to attend as her mother and not the Midwife.

How much is the piece?


Jeremy Broussard said...

Apparently, the one I like doesn't have a name. It's on the home page of Jill's site and features outlines of red birds on a blue green field.

I love a painting that makes me smile.

Renée said...

It's difficult to choose just one, but I love the red tulips. During the birth of my daughter, tulips were my focal point. (TRUE)
Pieces is also a favorite!
Thanks AMV!

Brittany O'Neal said...

I love "Spirit" and "Let Yourself Daydream". When I look at "Let yourself Daydream," it makes me want to get lost in the painting and forget the world around me. "Spirit" is calm, soothing with a little fire in it, reminds me of myself.

All The Trappings said...

They are all so great!!!

I am having a blast hosting my 1st giveaway!!!! I can't wait to choose the winner on Saturday and make someone's weekend by delivering the good news!!!

So glad everyone is excited, too :)


Karen said...

"Denim" is beautiful (well, actually all of the paintings are beautiful) and I liked "Green Trees". What wonderful work.

Karen said...

The longer I looked at her paintings, the harder it was to choose one!!! In the end, I think "Fog" is my favorite. The shadows covering the moon in the background give this piece an almost haunting effect. I can almost hear nighttime swamp sounds when I enjoy this beautiful painting!

Loving the magenta flowers...amazing!!

celeste.white said...

'Pieces' is definitely my favorite.

'Pacific Wheat' is a close second!

Ken Delavergne said...

I have loved her art for a while now. My favorite at her website is "Pacific Wheat" Man what a great piece.

Joel said...

Denim is my favorite so far but the painting in the give-a-way is really cool. Thanks. Joel

John said...

I really think the color and composition of Fog are so relaxing and dreamy. Would like to buy one soon.

RA said...

If I had to pick one from the ten that I like then it would be Red Tulips. Great use of color and balance. Very moody just like I like it. RA

Clyde said...

My favorite and it was hard since I wanted all of them, is Green Trees. Although, I would hang it proudley in my home. It is about time I have a Jill Broussard hanging. Clyde

Ty said...

Ok have to agree with Ken, Lemon Lime is my favorite but not by far. There are several favorites in her line of moody seductive art that needs to be in my collection. Ty

Congratulations, Andrea, on a whole year of blogging beauty!!! I've enjoyed learning from you. "Round trees" wins for the effect of them both together, like a photograph and the negative image, side by side.

Congrats on your one year blogiversary! I love to read your posts, and still in awe of your talents!

Jill's paintings are all beautiful, and it really was hard to pick just one, but I have to say, that I LOVE Vintage Turquoise-it reminds me of a day at the beach!


Jessica said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I visited Jill's site, and I fell in love with each and every piece for different reasons. I have to choose one, you say? Well, then I will say 'Water.' This is precisely what water looks and feels like - blue and green and calm.

Fran said...

Andrea, What a sweet surprise to receive your blog! You are sooooooo amazingly talented! I just love the crisp, contemporary way you integrate traditional design and your quirky, fun way of expressing yourSelf! Amazing woman, you are!

My life passion is being in awe of women, helping them to see those qualities in themselves. So, naturally, Jill's stunning piece of this woman caught my eye. An thanks for the invitation to travel to her website as well. I haven't been purchasing much art recently, but that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate it. She is one of my favorites, and 'Daydreaming' is the one I love the most.
Perhaps it is because I daydream about alot of things (and move some of them into reality), but I often daydream about being able to paint like she does! The painting evokes yearnings and desires, keeping me always on the edge of the next frontier.

Your passion and enthusiasm are contagious! It was lovely to see you recently.

Wishing you oodles and oodles of good things~~~

Ok, i'm late in doing this, but I love all her paintings and it is worth saying it no matter when it is said! I love all of her circles and any paintings where she has the gold leaf! She rocks!
