In my online search for '1950's Garden Dresses', I've stumbled across these fabulous paintings by Kelly Reemtsen. What an amazing talent she has with a paint brush!
These pictures are from an absolutely amazing set called 'Striving for Perfection' & there are pieces for sale online at this address: http://www.artnet.com/artist/93988/kelly-reemtsen.html
I love the way she's focused on the dresses & the garden gear alone, leaving the identity of the lovely ladies to the imagination of the viewer. For some reason I'm inspired to get behind the sewing machine & out into the garden with a beautiful cotton dress...

If you want to keep up to date with her gallery exhibitions, she does have a website for your viewing pleasure.
I wish I could find more of a personal biography for Kelly - alas my Google skills have failed!
Until next time,
