{artist showcase: kelly reemtsen}

I came across these lovely pieces of art by Kelly Reemsten that made me smile. As a single gal with my own place I find myself doing lots of handy stuff. My ‘tool drawer’ is getting pretty full, it looks like I may need to start a second one. I’m also more familiar with my local hardware store than I would like to be. Basically I’ve become handy because I have to be. That’s why I love these paintings with the contrast between the feminine subjects wearing vintage dresses carrying some not so feminine tools. And don’t forget to accessorize – a colourful bracelet & ring will get noticed when you’re swinging that ax. 

I’ve never done any work in a vintage dress but I did install a light fixture in a black slip once…now there’s an idea for another painting.
