It’s called Vein of Truth. According to the info posted on the C&B site, the artist is Allison Wickey. I did a quick online search for Allison and discovered her website and fell in love (with her art and her talent). She lives in Florida on the Gulf of Mexico and is inspired by the coastal scenes around her.
Here’s a sampling of some of her other pieces:
Some day when I’m a big girl and have money to spend on original works of art by an established painter, I just might have to give her a ring. Right now The Mr. would laugh in my face if I even hinted at my desire to purchase a piece that costs over $1000. He thinks I’m a good painter and that I could recreate it on my own. Well, let’s just say I’m a novice painter. And I don’t have the talent to DIY art like this!
- Do you love the coastal influence in her paintings?
- Have you invested in a REAL work of art, or do you secretly desire to like I do?
- Do you think it’s worth shelling out over $1000 for an original piece?
- Would the designers on Million Dollar Decorators laugh at my lack of a fat wallet?
