Several months ago on my personal journal, I shared the work of Samantha French. I can't tell you how delighted I am to see that her work is now available on Etsy. You can find a few original paintings as well as prints there, and you can find her entire portfolio on her website.
I adore all of her work, but it is the images of strong, self-confident women that I am most drawn to. These women seem to be entirely at ease, relaxed; the water has that effect, and these paintings draw me in and put my mind at ease.
