{a family affair}

I am admittedly a little behind on my correspondence: last week, I received a very lovely e-mail from Paris and Jill, two talented artists from Salt Lake City, Utah. What makes these two painters special is that they are mother and daughter, each with similar, yet unique artistic styles. Their bodies of work consist of a broad and interesting range of approaches, from still life, to landscape, impressionistic, to Chinoiserie-inspired strokes, to daughter Paris’ editorial selections.

Regardless if you prefer still life or landscape, it’s clear that talent runs in the family.

    I really like the collaborative piece. How nice that they can share the process of painting together. I wonder how they go about it…

  • Oh glamorous – now these really are lovely – that last one especially is gorgeous . Ooo I’m inspired to pick up the paintbrush!

  • Thank you for all of the encouraging comments. My mother and I paint together daily, so we tend to influence and inspire each other. These pieces were drawn from antique botanical bird prints. We painted, plastered, scratched and sanded to get the final look we were after. We passed the paintings back and forth until we were both satisfied with the results. The original paintings are sold, but giclee prints are available from our websites. http://www.parisgerrard.com

    I bought one of Paris’s hand painted giclee’s, and it looks just like an original. I am so happy that they have been discovered.
