Artist: Evan Abrahamson

Art Girls co-founder Hollie Blanchard says, “I used to dream about opening a floral shop with vintage curated clothing. For me it was a recipe crafted with aromatic scents and a sweet nod to creating a signature style. This oil painting stopped me in my tracks. I love the way the artist mixes the blue and white porcelain, a decorative style that dates back to ninth century, along with the bounty of new blooms. Gardens are ripe with beauty, so don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.”  Read more about For Your Collection

Burano by Peter Wong

Tucked away 40 miles north of Venice, Italy is the quaint fishing island of Burano known for its brightly colored painted homes. Legend has it that the homes were painted in bright pastel hues to help the fishermen find their way home when the lagoon was blanketed in fog. Photographer Peter Wong’s artistry has perfectly captured the vibrancy and whimsy of this magical island.
