The Artwork of Lesli DeVito

The Artwork of Lesli DeVito: At Home on the Bay

I was so excited when Lesli DeVito contacted me to tell me I had won her Pet Portrait Giveaway at the end of November.  Lesli is a talented artist, blogger, wife and mom to three amazing kids.  I can’t remember how I stumbled upon her blog, My Old Country House, but I immediately fell in love and became a follower.  She has a vintage eclectic style, and works wonders with second hand furniture to make her home welcoming, colorful and cozy.

Lesli has a whimsical impressionist style of painting.  I haven’t seen one of her portraits that didn’t make me smile.  She really knows how to capture the essence of a dog’s personality.  She asked me for a few photos, which I took several days to get to her, and I assumed she would work on it after Christmas.  Then about a week later she asked me if I’d like to see the finished painting, but I opted to be surprised.  When it arrived, I was like a little kid on Christmas morning opening the box.  I cried when I saw the finished piece.  I will cherish it forever.

Lesli had an amazing year in 2012.  Her house was “crashed” by Young House Love, and then her daughter Phoebe’s bedroom won The Washington Post Kid’s Room Contest.  She was also featured in House Beautiful and on several blogs including Apartment Therapy.

This year, Lesli hinted that she will be designing fabric, which I can’t wait to see.  She also set a goal of meeting her idol Jonathan Adler, and I have no doubt she will accomplish it.

    What a sweet likeness of your wonderful dog. I love your living room and the collage of artwork on the wall. I’m going on over to visit her blog now. Thanks!

    Love your blog, love your room above. Are you curtains from Pottery Barn, by any chance? They look enough like mine (which I also pair with a white slipcovered sofa and a throw the color of your tv stand) that I can’t tell. I got mine because they pulled together an extremely eclectic bunch of inherited furniture, and I pull out different colors with each season. I go more terra-cotta in the summer, and this time of year I try to match the dark aqua with my accessories.

    You’ve found the perfect spot for your fun protrait! Love the little painted chair, too. I had 5 of them in various colors, but 3 of them have gone to our grandchildren.
