Artful Wednesday: Janet Hill

What can I say about Janet Hill?  I discovered her last week when she was featured in Matchbook Magazine, and was floored and so proud to read that she's Canadian - from Stratford, Ontario.  Her painting has this beautiful, retro vibe.  I love the painting immediately below, titled 'The English Major," mostly because I relate to that!  And the picture on the bottom of the woman reading the Nancy Drew book... doesn't that make you feel like you're 12 and pretending you're a Nancy Drew-like sleuth?  Wow, I loved that time.  That's got to be the mark of a great painting: inspiring the viewer with great emotional connections.  If you love her work as much as me, then check out her very affordable Etsy shop!
