Public Bookstore [Introducing Beth Billups]

billupshemmedcolorsm
I was introduced to Beth Billups' work last winter, and just had to have one of her little love paintings,which then I just had to give to away to my friend, whose birthday just happens to fall dangerously close to Valentine's Day. Beth told me I wasn't the first person to do that: buy a painting for myself and then want to pass it on to a friend. I think Beth's paintings strike an emotional chord that makes you want to share them.

Never mind that I love Beth's blog as much for her bits and pieces about parenting her kids, and cooking, and moving the family across half the country this summer, as for her wonderful posts about works in progress and her process. Her paintings just absolutely charm me, and seem to put into visual form ideas and emotions that I connect with very personally.

Please go check out her work and her words and pictures. And then come in to the gallery next week to see one of Beth's encaustic paintings in living color.

I know you will be as charmed as I.

More tomorrow. Thanks for reading.

All right... you know I am a bit house-and-home-crazed right now, but really. I'm sitting here waiting for the real estate agent to bring over the paperwork so we can put our house on the market, and you casually drop Beth Billups into my lap. Thank you, thank you - I am in love.
Freaking out, but in love.

Love her work! Thanks for the introduction. I have a friend with a milestone birthday coming up and this might be just the thing.

I love when you feature artists. I bought several prints from Jennifer Judd-McGee after seeing her work on your site. I'll try to get over to the gallery to see Beth's work in person soon.
