Because she painted my blog logo, the work of self-taught Florida-based artist Anne Harwell (aka Annechovie) appears here everyday. During the past few years her charming approach to painting chairs, houses, and color-filled interiors has caught the eye of shelter mag editors and the Daily Candy team.
She is often inspired by the watercolors of the late Mark Hampton, and like Mr. Hampton, Anne has a reputation for being a kind and generous friend. Case in point: she paused from a busy day to snap these pictures for us. Shown above is her palette, paint-soaked blotter, and an array of supplies.
It seems that a "lucky glass" is not uncommon. Just as Heather Leigh Young has her 12-year-old paint cup, Anne has a "trusty old Wilkin & Son jam jar used to hold water and brushes for the last 10 years."
