Over the past year, I’ve gotten super interested in original art. Brandon has always had a love and appreciation for it and has asked for pieces as Christmas and birthday gifts over the years, but it has just taken quite a while for that same desire to rub off on me. (Which I hate to admit, by the way!) 

I recently added two new pieces to our home, both by Miles Purvis. Miles is a fellow South Carolina native, so that automatically drew me to her work. But when I took a peek at her amazing paintings, I knew my house needed some MP in its life! 

You may have already noticed on Instagram, but here are my two pieces.

I can’t imagine these spaces without her artwork now! It’s crazy how some brushstrokes on canvas can make all the difference in the world. The first one is from her abstract series and the second is one of her basket weavers. Isn’t she precious? Got to share an up close picture of another weaver so that you can see the amazing texture.

There’s a whole bunch of those southern gals out there.

You can learn more about Miles Purvis Art through her website or on Instagram.

ps. Totally unrelated, but did you know Ulta is celebrating their 25th birthday today? Check it out here because they are doing 25 hours of 25 beauty steals… and free shipping over $25!
