leanne shapton

by Grace Bonney

Winter has finally come to Brooklyn, so I’ve been loitering, virtually, around floral blogs. Besides images of fireplaces, the only other thing that makes me feel warm is seeing a sunny image of flowers. I’ve always had a fondness for floral paintings, but these pieces from Leanne Shapton are my absolute favorites. Her work feels rich, vibrant and fresh, just like flowers should be. I could stare at these all day. And considering my job requires me to have a laptop open at all times, I think I will. Click here to check out more of Leanne’s work online. xo, grace
