Vivienne in The Parlor With the Watercolors.

I just adore the paintings and illustrations of artist Vivienne Strauss. Her work evokes in me a combination of memories - they remind me of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his lovely (albeit somewhat troubled) wife Zelda, and then for some reason, conjure up the images of Diane Arbus for me. I'm not certain why exactly, but I love Vivienne's work and find them completely charming with a wonderful retro feeling to them. Vivienne has some new watercolor work available in her etsy shop, in addition to some beautiful gouache and gocco prints. Here's a peek at her endearing and lovely new work.

I have never seen these before. Thanks Victoria. I love them. My favs are the couple on the lounges having lemonade and the women in the park. So wonderful.
