Hooked on Janet Hill’s House Paintings

by hookedonhouses on June 11, 2009

Welcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. This week I discovered Janet Hill, a painter who is inspired a lot by the beauty of home, and I’m hooked! This painting, called “The Flowering Orange Tree,” is one of my favorites. Janet says, “As a result of living in a cold climate for six months of the year, I’ve developed a strong interest in the beauty of interiors. My inspiration lies in interior, furniture, and fashion design, as well as films. I love the glamour and beauty of interior surroundings.”

"The Conservatory"

You can see more of her work on her blog and check out all of the paintings available to purchase at her Etsy shop.

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re hooked on today! If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below. Just please be sure to:

  1. Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
  2. Include what you’re hooked on in parentheses after your blog name. Ex: The Red Cottage (antiques)
  3. Link back to the party from your post so that your readers can come and see what everyone else is talking about today!
  4. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and leave comments! That’s what a blog party is all about!
  5. Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted! If you come back and see your link is gone, re-read these rules and try again next week.

You know, all three of these paintings would fit in perfectly with my Hooked on Fridays post — it’s all about turquoise :-)

I was actually going to join in the “Hooked On Friday” but my post would have been about the Janet Hill painting I just bought (Francis Models Her Bathing Cap)! So I didn’t want to ‘horn in’ on your post.
Obviously, I LOVE ALL her paintings! I go to her blog each day to get my fix!

Kathi June 12, 2009 at 6:49 am

Beautiful art! That kitchen may become the inspiration for my dollhouse kitchen! Thanks for sharing Janet’s paintings!

I just found Janet’s kitchen painting on Etsy but I’m having trouble signing in to buy one! Her prices are very reasonable!
I’ll keep trying! I WANT this painting!

FROM THE RIGHT BANK June 12, 2009 at 7:21 am

Oh how beautiful! I love how delicate her brushstrokes are. I thought the first one was my favorite at first but now I think I like the kitchen one more.

Janet Hill’s paintings are so incredibly charming. It is not surprising that her paintings sell so quickly!

Well, at Atticmag, we’re especially hooked on kitchen design and decor every day — among other home decorating obsessions such as rugs — so you know which of those paintings would be my favorite. Terrific painting, so nostalgic.

I checked out her blog and etsy shop and I love her paintings. I think it is the colors she uses that I love. I love your blog and your Hooked On link parties. I love your posts about the celebrity and movie homes. Thanks!

Jen - thethriftyhome.com June 12, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Hi again, I hope I am not breaking the rules by posting 2 links on your link party. I just remembered that today is FREE CHOCOLATE day over at Mars and I wanted to share it with anyone who doesn’t know about it. You can take my other link off if you want, I changed my mind about what I am HOOKED on this week when I remembered about the FREE CHOCOLATE. Chocolate makes me crazy like that.

hookedonhouses June 12, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Link to as many as you want! Especially if they involve free chocolate. I’m all for that! -Julia
