inspire me: Leah Giberson

Leah Giberson's work captures a part of America in a straightforward but beautiful way. I love the way she simplifies the background, really making your eye focus on the core of the piece. Her color pallet is perfect for the period and place it feels like she's trying to convey (yellow-green grass is pretty much the norm in vintage photos). And can we talk about the reflections in that trailer? I feel like I've discovered a secret.

Her smooth brush work makes the whole world seem soft and unrealistic. It makes it feel like you're looking at something you see in everyday life, but through the eyes of someone who loves it. Like looking at something in a fond memory.
