UPCOMING RELEASES: Kim Hassold 9.23 | Lexie Armstrong 9.27 | Kellie Lawler 10.1 | Susie Bettenhausen 10.4

It started with our fall releases, which then led to our Small Works Show the influx of incredible Well + Wonder artwork has us in the mood for all things Holiday! We know, we know it's hardly Thanksgiving...but we just can't help it the gallery is stocked with too many good gifts not to share! Each member of the Well + Wonder team pulled a few paintings they are planning on giving, as well as a few they wouldn't mind receiving.....heeey Santa 👋🏻, keep reading to see what's on our wish lists!

 Mother:

Loving You is Easy by Amanda Norman.  I am thinking the title alone should make her tear up, PLUS my Mom loves nothing more than blue and white paired together!

 Sister-in-law: 

For my fun sister-in-law who loves leopard ALMOST as much as I do I can't think of anything better to give than Malibu Barbie by Kathleen Jones. 

Husband:

I am thinking Harvest Sky is a perfect gift for my husband and win, win for both of us.  (You realize that is what happens when you gift art to your spouse, right?!)  It will look just masculine enough for his new home office and remind us both of our beloved low-country.  

Hostess Gift: 

I can't think of a better hostess gift than Blue Oblong Vase by Kristin Endsley filled to the brim with magnolia leaves!

Children:

Francie (my four-year-old) has been eyeing Carrie Beth Waghorn's fashionistas and insists Swept Up in Pink is her favorite which is really no surprise the girl loves pink and purple everything.  I am going to put a white lacquer frame on this one and hang it right next to her favorite place in her room: her closet.

Children: 

The two bunnies in Lexi Armstrong’s Are You Sure remind me of the look my little boy, Ford, gave his big sister Jane when she told him that to do a cartwheel, he needed to put his leg out and go for it.

Allison James’s Oh, What a World would be the perfect gift for my daughter Jane. It reminds me of the high-rise buildings that blew her mind on her first trip to New York last week.  I want her to remember that the world is BIG, exciting and full of energy.

Sister-in-law: 

My sister-in-law told me a few weeks ago that she loves everything from Kerry Hays.  She’s been working long hours lately and I’d love nothing more than to surprise her with Materials XII.

Hostess Gift:  I think all of my friends would be inspired by the feminine edge of Paige Follman’s Phases of Faces series, Phases of Faces 3 looks right through me and inspires me to be bold. 

Mother: 

My mother “Lulu” loves all things family, she would melt over Rebekah Webb’s Mother and Child No. 11.  Rebekah’s Hold You Number 7 is currently in my kitchen and brings me joy and thankfulness every single day.  

Husband:

For William, I’d gift Sallie Robbins Strickland’s Baby Bug 3 to remind him of happy times on a river out west.  I only wish we had a few more available so I could give a pair or trio! 

  

 

Parents:

I've been eyeing Lindsey Porter's abstract botanicals for years now. These paintings make me swoon! Abstract Botanical 2 is so so good and would look perfect in their kitchen. I'm no fool either....giving this painting would mean that I would get to enjoy it too win, win!

 

Brother:

Hadley's apartment could use a zhuzh to liven up his space. Any painting (or pair! or quad!) from Paige Follmann's series In Greenwich Form would be perfect. I think this series is so funky yet still handsome. Perfect for a 27-year-old! In Greenwich Form 3 is my personal fave.

Sister: 

Catherine is still in college and living that dorm life. While I doubt she currently sees the value in dressing up her cinderblock walls with artwork in place of the twinkle lights and party pictures, I know she would love Christy King's collage Bluebead Lily post-grad. 

Me:

I know this is technically a round-up of paintings we are giving this holiday season but I couldn't help but throw something I truly wouldn't mind seeing under the tree....Shoutout Susie Bettenhausen for fueling my love of green. @family Wading Annes Beach is ~chefs kiss~

Hostess Gift: 

Alright, alright this is an absolutely shameless plug! But these Cutie Little paintings would be the perfect hostess gift! Prop 'em or hang 'em on a wall they are so versatile (should I keep going...) In my not so humble opinion, I think that any Holiday hostess would be more than pleased to receive!
