in continuation of my new, developing obsession with water colours, i am posting these whimsical maps by elisabeth from poppy & pinecone on etsy. similar to the cityscapes created by watercolourist jessica durrant, elisabeth tugs at our heartstrings with her custom paintings of states, provinces and countries. as i begin to fall more in love with my city each day (my home now for just over three years), i often think about how when i leave (there will unfortunately come a day), i will want a portrait of this beautiful island to take with me. looking at these beautifully, but softly rendered shapes makes me think i've found the artist who can make that happen for me.
below i've included some places that mean something to me - canada, british columbia (see me waving from the bottom of vancouver island?), italy (a place i must visit someday in order to feel like a true art historian/curator) and north america.
