The Brazilian Court Hotel

Palm Beach Collection FALL 2024

There’s something storybook perfect and glamorous about Palm Beach like no where else. Something as dazzling as Gatsby. I was first captivated by set of this stunning island; the orchids dangling down in the air along the sidewalks and the soft pastel sky that feels like silk. Each time I visit this island I wonder if its magic will ever wear off on me; it doesn’t. It’s every bit dazzle as it ever has been. With each iteration of Palm Beach, my perspectives develop; deepen. Each time I arrive in Palm Beach I turn a corner and see a composition I haven't captured and it drives me to my palette. Some scenes I've painted several times, others are new endeavors- but each is special and delightfully Palm Beach. 

Each original painting has been painted on 300 lb hand torn French watercolor paper with a variety of high quality pigments that show off the brilliant color of each location. The paper and the pigment come together to give a truly unique artwork. There is only one of each. 

Original approximately  6” x 8 

Original Artwork

Original art is the most valuable; the most sought after; the most desired. At our worst, we have stolen, betrayed, and killed for it. At our best, we have humbly cried before it-and it’s changed our hearts and lives and world view and perspective for the better.

In creating, the artist is imparting herself onto the paper. An artist’s hand in creating the work of art mimics our ultimate creator. In owning the original you’re owning a glimpse of the alpha. Lydia’s artwork is created on French watercolor paper with a variety of high quality pigments and brushes that are all collected in striving to imbue her paintings with a sense of the meaning that sits just beyond our gaze.
