In the Garden

In the Garden with Sandy Dooley

We’re still on the hunt for art for our new living room so we were thrilled to receive Sandy Dooley’s email introducing us to her work.  A landscape artist living and working in the beautiful Weald of Kent in the UK, Sandy is known for paintings that transport the viewer to the in-the-moment experience of being out in the countryside surrounded by the colors and visual richness of the natural world.

Given that her studio is in her garden and she works outside as much possible, Sandy exquisitely captures the moods of each season in her paintings – from the verdant greens of spring and warm tones of an Indian summer, to the deep rich hues of fall and the cool blues of winter.  Her work feels as spontaneous and lush as an English garden and her vibrant colors would brighten any wall.

We’d invest in any number of these so it’s a good thing that Sandy’s paintings and prints are available online at Saatchi and Artfinder.  It’s only too bad we can’t just hop a plane and visit her in her garden…  Yet through the magic of Vimeo, we can!  Just click on the image below to launch the video.

    She is sensational. Wow! I love her paintings – they absolutely give the feeling of a stroll in the English countryside. Peaceful and vibrant at the same time. Gorgeous.
    Hope you get to do some wandering this weekend – or will you be regatta-ing again? Whatever you have planned, happy weekend! XO
