  1. I’ve been a fan of Clare’s for awhile on Etsy. Her work is amazing. I would have to go with the first print that I discovered of hers. My home is the sea.

  2. I’ve been following this artist on Etsy for a while. I really love her work. I would have to flip a coin to decide between Married to the Sea and Watching Trees.

  3. oooh! love all of them, but my favorite is “Favorite Place”…would love to win any of these! thanks for the chance and for sharing a wonderful etsy shop i didn’t know about! natalea

  4. I’ve been admiring these for a while now. They have such a great spirit! I love the new flower series, but my favorite in the 16×20 size is of the couple in bed (NOVEMBER . large archival giclee art print poster of original couple in love acrylic painting) :)

  5. Wow, I LOVE “Rose Queen.” So many beautiful paintings, but that one is definitely my favorite!

  6. I love the large (13 x 19) ‘To the Night’ print. So simple and beautiful. All of Clare’s work is gorgeous and I would be so thrilled to have something by her in my home!

  7. I’ve been eying these this week! How to decide? I love Navy and Yellow, but Pillow Land would be so right in my bedroom!

  8. Ooooh. I’ve currently got a print of her Married to the Sea in my bathroom, and I love it. :)

    I love Asleep. It’s a gut-deep representation of pure bliss.

  9. I love these so much. I especially love Married to the Sea. Definitely bookmarking these for the future.

  10. The 12×16 ‘Flowers for Ines’ is by far my favorite (of the week)! I have loved Claire’s work for years! What a great giveaway :)

  11. My fav is “THREE” :) but all of these are so lovely
    Bizou xx

  12. oh my! how can you chose a favorite? i’ve had my eye on ‘my home is the sea’ for a long time, but also love ‘to the night’!

  13. wow. I love her work! There are numerous ones I would love to hang on my walls pass by all day long. Numero uno is UNDO.

  14. So much loveliness to choose from – My Home is the Sea & Undo are favourites. @MarisaEdghill

  15. What a wonderful way to start the day… by being introduced to a ‘new’ artist! I think “November is my favorite, but “Blue Bird” and “Ring of Roses” aren’t far behind!

  16. Ohhh, thanks so much for introducing this artist. I fell instantly in love with her style! My favorite is Undertow….even though the title sounds ominous she captured the perspective of setting out toward the ocean so beautifully for me.

  17. I just LOVE her work! What a great giveaway!
    My favorite is “To Sea” , but it was hard to just choose one! A lot of the women she paints remind me of myself, so I would love any of them…

  18. The only thing missing from my Charleston, SC bedroom wall is the “So much” print. Love it so much!

  19. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Undertow and Happiness. I would be more than happy with either of those prints! Clare is an amazing painter!

  20. One of my favourites is “From the Garden” but I have my eye on another eleven I would like to buy in the future!

  21. I love, love, LOVE “My Home is the Sea.” I posted it on Facebook and got a lot of likes!

  22. WOW! I would love to win one of these prints! I am always moved by Clare’s work, so intense, it really speaks to me. I have always been drawn to Watching Trees, it’s calming and beautiful/

  23. Oh, I love “So Much”! I am a huge fan of fresh flowers, and have been known to hug a bunch of lilacs in much the same way :)

  24. I lover her work so much that it is impossible to pick just one of her images as my favorite. Of the 16 x 20 prints some of the ones that I like the most are: “Pillow Land”, “From the Garden”, and “Undertow”.

  25. I love Clare’s work and her piece Rose Queen would be perfect hanging my home! Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. I’ve had “Bedtime” sitting in my Etsy cart for a couple weeks-perhaps I can wait a bit longer…

  27. Oooooh… I pinned “Married to the Sea” over a year ago. I think it’s still my favorite. All are very beautiful.

  28. I’ve had an art crush on Clare for years. That she lives in Jenner just makes her art even more appealing…I grew up playing on the beach at Goat Rock and Salmon Creek. I would love to have “My Home is the Sea” because it reminds me of my beautiful wife’s red hair. Peace!

  29. “Married to the Sea.” It’s an oldie but a goodie. It’s peaceful but mysterious at the same time.

  30. It’s so hard to just pick one of Clare’s gorgeous Paintings, but I think the Married to the Sea painting is my favorite!

  31. Oh, gosh! It is so hard to pick just one. Absolutely stunning work. If I had to choose, it would be “NOVEMBER”. So romantic.

  32. Oh, I love Clare’s work so much! Currently have several of her paintings in my “favorites” on etsy! It’s really a toss up, but I love “To the Night”, “Lost & Found”, “So Cozy”, “Capsized”, and “Undertow”. I absolutely adore her work!

  33. I’ve been looking for a way to blend my love of nautical art with my love of floral art…Tastes Orangey prints like So Much and Grew Into look like the perfect mix! Not to mention, those colors would be swell with my decor =) Great giveaway!

  34. I’m such a fan! As an interior designer I refer all my clients to etsy artists like Claire and her husband Kai’s artwork.. They all fall in love with their pieces too, and a few of them are gracing the homes I design. I would love to add “undertow” to my personal home!

  35. I’d LOVE to win the blue black room print. It would be perfect for right now. His hand is on her belly & I’m pregnant :) Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. I’m in love with her work and dream about owning NOVEMBER frequently. As a matter of fact, I pinned in yesterday whilst thinking of my wedding anniversary. Thanks for the gracious giveaway!

  37. I’ve been admiring her work for some time now. i’d love: married to the sea, swirl, or asleep… or to the night. I love them all.

  38. lovely lovely haunting
    married to the sea is the one i’d pick… cause i feel just like that, looking out into the dark water. :)

    not sad, just solitary.

    gakgakg – twitter

    i might just buy one anyway. Stunning!

  39. This is wonderful! Clare is one of my favorites. I’ve been eyeing “Undertow” for some time now!

  40. I love Testes Orangey – one of my favorite Etsy shops! So hard to pick one print but I think Sweet Dreams would be my pick…

    kcmichellew at gmail dot com

  41. What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks for introducing us to this beautiful shop. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I’ll go with “So much”

  42. The amazing thing about Clare is the subtle magic she can bring to a feeling of simplicity. I would love to get a print from her – for that, I picked the first paiting of hers I ever saw – November, sent to me by email from my boyfriend while I was travelling away. It gave me such a sense of peace. The world seems lighter with him, and in Clare’s paintings. Thank you so much.

  43. What a great new discovery, I love her work! I’m moving to Portland in a couple of weeks and “So much” would look absolutely stunning in our new home.

  44. Well this is an impossible question! I love “November” but “Long Legs” (and almost every other print!) would work so well in my apartment!

  45. “Quicksand” is my favorite by far, because the two people couldn’t look more like my boyfriend and me if we had sat for the painting! We’ve gone through some really hard times together and this print is so perfectly “us” that it’s almost scary.


  46. Been a fan of her work for quite a while…i love ’em all – but fav is november – the sleeping couple. lovely.

  47. I love her work so much. Clare’s Etsy shop has long been a favorite of mine. “Undertow” is especially dreamy.

  48. All of your work is so lovely. I think “Lost and Found” may be my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway.

  49. What lovely artwork, I wish I could paint half as well! I think my favourite is ‘Sinister Tabby’, it really made me smile when I saw it as my cat likes to gives me a look very similar!

  50. Oh I just love her work. A hard choice, but I would have to say Married to the Sea is my favorite. Northern River is really pretty too! :)
    twitter: @Laura_bear

  51. So much goodness! I already have Married to the Sea in my Etsy favorites, so I will have to go with that one.

  52. I purchased artwork from Clare a few months ago(married to the sea). The prints was high quality and looks fantastic framed. I plan on purchasing more for my home and had my eye on (Lost and Found). I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  53. “Watching Trees” is my new favorite. I purchased “Married to the Sea” last year and it is my favorite art in my house!

  54. Great!! I love LOVELY, because this picture for me is so mysterious – I can find various moods in that face. The other one is LOOSE THREADS, I like the colors and the beauty of that bunch of flowers.

  55. I first fell in LOVE with “Happiness” it is so whimsical and feminine. The colors are so beautiful. I also love “Married to the Sea”. It is total opposite of my first choice. Calming, soothing and relaxing. I could sit and stare at this all day imagining what her day would be like, where she will go what she will do. It’s so simple yet can tell so many stories!

  56. I love “Married to the Sea.” Even though it’s not the 16×20″ size, I’m also loving “Sinister Tabby!” :)

  57. I love so much of Clare’s work, but my favorite right now is “So Much,” so I would LOVE to add that one to my wall!

  58. I am such a fan of your ethereal work. You make flowers look like part of the person. Its surreal.

    My Favorite is The HoneyMoon Couple. Reminds me of my husband and I. Its wonderful <3

  59. Clare’s work is amazing! I didn’t see my favorite on her site, maybe she doesn’t have it anymore? I think it was called puppy love, but it shows a little black lab puppy in some tall grass with a girl’s lower half, in an apron. So cute, has always reminded me of my black lab, Betty. Otherwise, my favorite is Undertow..

  60. ‘Waves’ is my absolute favourite although I would be extremely happy to have any of these to look at every day.

  61. I love Sweet Dreams, Tastes Orangey is awesome, I have two of her prints and I just love them!

  62. I got my red hair chopped from elbow length to jaw length… mainly because of “Dark Seas” an image that I go back to time and time again. I blogged about this painting in November 2011 as one of my favourite things on Etsy… to own this would be perfect!

  63. I love “Undertow”, “Rosie” or “Watching Trees”. I wanted a stitched print a while ago, and you stopped making them;( I should have snapped it up before you got busy and married! Congratulations!!

  64. Clare’s work is so beautiful and serene! Too hard to narrow it down to just one… a few faves of mine are “A Heavy Sky”, “Waves” and “Married to the Sea.”

  65. I would love one of Clare’s prints for my bedroom. So peaceful. I think “Married to the Sea” is my favorite :)

  66. I have loved ‘Married to the Sea’ for such a long time, not knowing who the artist is. I’m so glad to discover the artist and her etsy store. The colors and the textures are magnificent in the painting.

  67. They really all are so beautiful, just completely transport you. I think my favorite might be Waves!

  68. “Favorite Place” is quite stunning, thanks for doing such a kind thing, I hope whoever receives such prints enjoys them.

  69. I’m a lucky girl to have “Tiny Pony” and “Boat Shoes” grace my home. Every time i walk by them I feel, well, happiness… i’m madly in love with Clare’s work – so, along those lines, i would be crazy in love to own “Happiness” <3

  70. You really want me to pick just one?? I have loved her shop for as long as I can remember. All of the bedroom/pillow ones are my favorite. I love “Three” too much. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  71. I have been obsessing over “Married to the Sea” for literally weeks. Love, love, love! Thanks for having this fun giveaway! :)

  72. LOVE her work! Sweet Dreams is my favorite, but it’s such a touch choice! Thanks for the opportunity!

  73. WHAAAAT!!?!? Best giveaway ever. I love her work and had pinned several pieces already, but hadn’t purchased yet because I just couldn’t decide which one to get. But today, being forced to pick one, my gut says “Undo.” That’s the one my eye goes to first every time. There are so many great ones. But it’s the one I keep thinking about most. So, that’s it — Undo!

    I never win these things. But I am crossing my fingers/toes/eyes for this one!

  74. I have been a fan of Clare’s work for a while, I would love to own a print of hers! My favorite is probably “Ring of Roses.”

  75. I absolutely *love* “So Much” – http://www.etsy.com/listing/125065585/so-much-extra-large-giclee-poster-print?ref=shop_home_active
    What a fun giveaway! Thanks for making it. :) As always, love your blog and what you do. Thanks for being so inspiring!

  76. I love pretty much everything in her shop, but if I have to pick, the “So Cozy” print is wonderful!

  77. I love her work SO SO much. My choice would have to be either Asleep, or Cabana- I have the perfect little homes for them on my wall!!! ♥

  78. I love all the “swimmer looking away from the viewer” prints. Choose one? Probably married to the sea.

  79. I love all her work, but I choose ‘So Cozy’ since it would look awesome in my bedroom :)

  80. I love “Happiness.” I’ve been a Tastes Orangey fan for awhile and would love to finally own a print. Thank you!

  81. I LOVE Clare’s painterly work and it is so soulful. Such luscious painting! TastesOrangey is a great name for her shop, because I could eat these all up.
    My favorite is ‘Undo’

  82. It’s a toss up between Undo, Married to the Sea and My Home is the Sea. I guess I like the sea.

  83. What a great idea! I wish more people would do art giveaways! Hard to choose but I think my favorite is “Sweet Dreams.” I love the simplicity of it. Great stuff.

  84. This was tricky to pick! But, ultimately, Pillow Land won me over. I love the softness and the serenity in this piece. It would be lovely in my bedroom or guest bedroom. Such beautiful work! Thanks for running this contest and introducing me to the beauty that is tastes orangey!

  85. Her paintings of sleepers have always been a favorite of mine. “November” for my bedroom please <3

  86. When I saw the painting ‘lovely’ it literally took my breath away. I love all the faceless images in your work, it brings a sense of mystery. However you are brilliant with faces, please do more! They are all marvelous, wonderful colours. Well done Clare.

  87. I absolute love “Flower Child”, but all the prints are absolutely beautiful. I love the artists style and her use of light. Thank you for bringing her to my attention x

  88. I love all of Clares work. I’m especially drawn to the beautiful blue and green tones, which is why Pillow Land and Head Over Heels are my all time favourites.
    Lovely giveaway.
    Karen xx

  89. I broke into the biggest smile on seeing So Much! Memories of carefree hot days in Scotland, that were few and far between!

  90. I absolutely adore the “so much” prints – so lively and vivid!
    Would like to also take the chance to say that your blog is fantastic! I love your style and find myself sharing your blog posts with all my friends and relatives :)
    I never win anything, but hey, it never hurts to try ;) so yes, “so much” print would be amazing!
    im on twitter: @mpetrova007

  91. These are all wonderful but I particularly covet ‘Sweet One’. I’ve just revamped my space and it would look amazing here. I’m on fb here: https://www.facebook.com/CoraMurphyArt
    Am v. sporadic on twitter but will try to follow along just to see who wins. Thanks and I’m sure whichever print is won will go to a grateful home. x

  92. Pillow Land is my favourite print. All of your images are beautiful, but Pillow Land leaped out at summing up how i feel right now. A little lost and overwhelmed with life trying to balance being a mum of two, job and me. Perhaps some time out in Pillow Land would restore the balance a little!

  93. Lava Rocks is my favourite. I like that I will never know what she looks like, makes you imagine.

  94. Wow, these are absolutely beautiful and I’ve just spent far too long looking at them all. If i had to pick one it would be Favourite Place because it reminds me of my favourite place – in the sea in Devon, England. It brilliantly captures the movement and the shades of light and dark in the water. It makes me feel like I’m there with the sun glinting and the warm and cold currents that you move through as you wade in deeper ….. This actually sums up summer for me. I’d love to see the original acrylic.

  95. Absolutely love “So Much”. I stopped here because I loved that image- then realised it was part of a competition! Awesome!

    Thank you :)

  96. So gorgeous. I can only imagine how fantastic the originals would be! My favourite would be My Home is the Sea, as I’m currently living in Germany, far away from the sea in my original home of Australia, and the textures capture perfectly the feeling of floating at dusk in a calm sea.

  97. Gorgeous prints! I love Married to the Sea – makes me think of midnight swims in the ocean baths.

  98. Wow. I just found a new favorite artist! Thanks for posting. She manages to capture a feeling I very much relate to and love. The movements and moments are not commonly exemplified and made grand, but there’s such beauty in them. I’d have to say that the pieces I covet the most would be “red ribbon,” “so much,” and “girl in trees.”

  99. i love “married to the sea.” definitely hard to choose, though–thanks for the opportunity!

  100. Beautiful prints. My favorite is “Flower Child” because it reminds me of all the faceless women carrying fresh bouquets at our local outdoor market.

  101. I love “Undertow” with a close second and third being “Happiness” and “Forest Shadows.” Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity.

  102. I LOVE UNDO…
    All the things you say are true,
    the things we cannot fix with glue,
    the things I did not think quite through
    but like my hair I will undo.
    Thank you for featuring Clare Elsaesser’s work. I’m glad to know about her.

  103. Married to the Sea! I’ve been pining for that painting for months. I would be so grateful to win it!

  104. We would LOVE the painting “Arrangement” – long time admirers of Tastes Orangey as the paintings are captivating and you always see something different, or a special unique touch, upon a closer look. We have a huge space on our stairwell leading from the kitchen to the living room that is begging for some art. Our kitchen colors are orange and teal so “Arrangement” would be the best addition to our happy home!

  105. I am in love with “August Bath” and would love to decorate my new appartement with this beautiful picture.

  106. so hard to choose….have loved tastes orangey for ages.

    I’m drawn to this one because it reminds me of childhood

    love her florals

    and her water art too

    and this has long been a favorite

    sorry, it’s too hard to pick just one.

    thanks Victoria and Clare for the giveaway

  107. I love My Home is the Sea. After a recent move from a California beach town to the middle of Texas, I am dreaming that this is me :)

  108. WOW. I really like the “Dress” print — of a wedding gown, with the giant white and grey brush strokes. Then, I like “Married to the Sea,” “Rose Queen,” “Loose Threads,” AND “Overgrown.” Scratch all of that, the print of “Overgrown,” with the bright yellow background is my absolute favorite. What talent! Thank you for sharing. :)

  109. The whole series of women with their faces obscured by flowers is heinously beautiful, but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Grew Into.

  110. so great.

    must. have. pillow land.
    (also needed bird in hand…but went ahead and bought that one.)

    twitter = kcmooney

  111. “My Love” – I check the shop regularly to make sure it’s still there. If I can’t win it, eventually I’ll manage to make the purchase.

  112. I am really drawn to “Lovely” — just want to keep looking at the painting and thinking about it!

  113. I love her works with water, and it’s so hard to choose, but I’d pick “My home is the Sea” because it speaks to me. “Capsized” “Married to the Sea” and “Undertow” are more of my watery favorites. And “So Much” is So Pretty!

  114. This is literally the best give-away EVER – Clare Elsaesser’s work is just beautiful, so hard to pick just one fave. Think I’ll go for ‘Undo’ – so beautiful. Thank you, Laura @highstreethome

  115. Wow, they are all so beautiful! I have been eyeing “So Much”. It reminds me of how I love flowers “so much”! I feel happy every time I glance at it. Love them all!

  116. I am drawn to so many, but essentially I would pick Favourite Place, mostly because I live by a small beach in New Zealand and swim every day. I have a knot of curly hair that when wet becomes a birds nest and this picture is how I imagine beachgoers see me as I get in the water each day.

  117. I have never seen Clare’s work before, I think it is lovely! I think ‘Married to the Sea’ is stunning, I can totally imagine it over my couch!

  118. Amazing work, love them all! Eyeing Undo, Cabana, and Undertow. The blues and greys are so dreamy and the different emotions in each is just beautiful. ME ME ME!!!!

  119. I absolutely love the way Clare captures feminine beauty and innocence, it was nearly impossible to pick one favorite…sooo I pick UNDO. Stunning!

  120. I would be delighted with Northern River or My Home Is the Sea. Thank you for sharing this beautiful and poetic work!

  121. It would be a very tough call… I have a smaller print of My Home is the Sea and I adore it. I think maybe Untertow would be a good complement to it…

  122. Hi Victoria! So fun to know you’re just up the road (I’m in Bodega Bay). We are blessed to have so many creatives here in our little coastal enclave. Your art is wonderful and I will happily share your generous offer. I will not participate as I know there are many out there who truly could not afford to buy original art and your offering would be such a gift to that someone. So bless your heart . . . hope to meet you someday.

  123. How does one choose? They are all so beautiful. Thanks for bringing this lovely artist to my attention. If I have to choose one, it would be HAPPINESS. Thanks Victoria.

  124. I have a couple of her prints already, and have wanted to add “To the Night” to my collection!

  125. I have always loved November. My husband and I need art for our bedroom and I plan to do a gallery wall -of sorts- on a wall in our room, based around this one. Sigh!

  126. Oh I love Clare’s work! I would love to own My Home is the Sea, which is what introduced me to her work in the first place. :)

  127. Ooh, I’ve been a big fan of Clare’s since I joined Etsy and absolutely looove her work! Her “Married to the Sea” print has been a longtime favourite :) Fabulous contest, Victoria!

  128. I’ve loved Clare’s work for so long! Her paintings are so beautiful. My top picks would have to be Undertow, To the Night, Asleep. My favourite title is Married to the Sea – THE BEST!! <3 I love that painting too. I wouldn't even know how to chose. Clare could chose for me from those 4 :)

  129. What a wonderful giveaway! :) Her paintings are so beautiful; I really like the sea/water prints, especially the Summer Girl painting. <3

  130. All of Clare’s prints are amazing! I already own Asleep, which my Mum always admires when she visits, so I’d love to win her the 16×20 Asleep print.

  131. I love all of her prints but I think my favorite is “Ring of Roses”. Thanks for the giveaway!

  132. I love “To The Clouds.” It’s me during the first minutes of starting a yoga class — just hanging like a rag doll. It’s such a moment of joy and peace…and to know I have a whole hour to myself on a rectangular mat no one but me can step on is a wonderful feeling! xo, Ulrica.

  133. Oh my. This is the first I have seen of her artwork and am completely smitten by it. It makes me smile.

  134. I’m delighted to discover Clare’s work on my birthday! I love “Favorite Place” because it looks like my dear friend Lisa who is always in the sea.

  135. So many nice paintings but “So Much” strikes a chord with me. It’s like she wants to breathe in those flowers, she loves them so much. On good days, I feel that way about my kids. :)

  136. I already have several of her smaller works but I would love to add Dark Seas or Sweet Dreams to my collection. Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!


  137. “Asleep”: tonight I am alone in my big bed with sad memories occupying my head and my heart, but as I look at this beautiful and delicate painting I can feel the presence of my faraway husband next to me draining my pain away.

  138. Oh my. Totally new to her work…and after looking through her shop twice over I’m totally smitten with nearly every piece of it. How to choose?!

    Head over heels.
    To the clouds.
    To the night.
    Dark seas.

    Okay, okay. To the clouds it is!


  139. just loved everything!!! but my favorite would be “married to the sea”.
    I think an apartment in Rio de Janeiro is the perfect place for it to be hanging!!!!!!!!

  140. I would like to have “Happiness”. it is such a lovely painting that would give a boost for my mood. Currently having a drastic changing in my life which really make me down. That’s why I think “Happiness” really lift up my mood with its lovely color. I really admire your work by the way. Stay creative. Love.

  141. Wow so munch to choose from , she is talented. I love the Rose queen ,Asleep and Bird in Hand .
    These painting just make you feel so calm …

  142. Wow, such amazing talent, thank you for introducing me to her art. I’ve been looking for something that would look great in my living room and I think I know where to go for it! I’m having trouble choosing between Watching Trees, So Much and Fall, they’re all just so ethereally beautiful – I may have to save up for a big splurge!

  143. Undo brought me in…. but there is so much romance and pure emotion in all her work. Thank you for sharing this artist with me, I’m smitten.

  144. I love, love, love her work. Thank you (and honestlywtf) for introducing!

    I love Flower Child, So Much, Married to the Sea, Ring of Roses… her work is INCREDIBLE!


  145. What a fabulous giveaway!! I don’t know how to choose . . . I guess I’ll say Fox Portrait! (Or from the Garden!! )

  146. Fantastic! Beautiful pieces. I love the feeling of “Married to the Sea” it makes me homesick for Florida where I grew up (am now in Chicago). I also really like “Overgrown,” “Lovely,” and “Waves.”
    Btw, I love your blog!

  147. I love them all – how hard to choose just one! I’ve been a big fan of Clares work for years now and have always dreamed of having one of her pieces! My favourite at the moment would be “Flower Child”
    twitter @cejocro

  148. Clare’s work is beautiful and I’m especially drawn to her new work since she moved to Jenner. Any of those prints would delight me , but “Grew Into” is topping the list.

  149. I love that her work reminds me of my daughter Hanna, 17, beautiful, lanky, and a river girl. We live in Petaluma and I know she would cherish one of Clare’s beautiful prints. I would choose Happiness it’s just lovely.

  150. I love her work and while Married to the Sea was my favorite for a long time, I have to go with Northern River. I have a collection prints and paintings of brunettes and that would fit right in.

  151. Well, i loved them all!! But the one called “Head over Heels” reminds me some of my strange dreams… floating and flying..

  152. I love “To The Clouds”!

    I have been a fan of her work on etsy for a long time, but as an art student too poor to buy anything yet…though I think it’s about time!

    I love her work. So beautiful!

  153. I really love “So Much” so much. I’m basically in love will all of them though. This painting would make the end of my grad school semester so much better!

  154. I’d LOVE Undertow for our bedroom. It feels so dreamlike; how we enter sleep and are pulled under, into dreams.

  155. I feel like she understands me. So Much and Pillow Land are perfection. Thanks for this contest!

  156. I’ve had this easy shop bookmarked for some time and visit often. My favorite is “Pillowland” followed by “From the Garden”.

  157. I love Clare’s painting style. Lovely 16″ x 20″ is my favourite. It has a wistful and romantic feel with a bit of a vintage vibe. So, so lovely.

  158. Quedé enamorada de sus pinturas desde el primer día que las vi, simplemente siento que describe pequeños momentos de mis días. Amaría tener una copia de “giclee” en mis paredes.
    I was in love with his paintings from the first day i saw them, i just feel that describes small moments of my life. i would love to have a copy of “giclee” on my walls.

  159. Sweet Dreams reminds me how my husband and I often don’t want to face the world in the morning, but at least we don’t want to face it together. And Clare, you rock…I’ve purchased from tastesorangey before! Meck -a- leck -a- hi – meck -a- hiney -ho!

  160. This is so hard! I have loved her etsy store for so long- I go back and visit all the time. I seriously want all of them but I think my top favorites are “my home is the sea”, “summer girl” and “asleep”. my mom says i need “asleep” so i can attract a man to my house (ie feng shui). lol.

  161. Oh! I absolutely adore Clare’s work, I have two small sewn prints which I bought about two years ago and would love a big print for our bedroom. Her flower paintings are wonderful, ‘So much’ is one of my favorites, would love a chance at that one… Thank you!
