The Whimsy Spotlight is, L. Herbert Designs...

This week’s Whimsy Spotlight is very inspiring and beautiful.

Laryssa Herbert is the great Artist and owner behind L. Herbert Designs Original Art. Her amazing watercolor paintings are truly special! The first time I saw Laryssa's paintings I was drawn in by how simple, yet detailed and beautiful each one was. She is a very talented artist.

Using only the finest quality paper, inks, and giclee printing process Laryssa is able to produce a print that is as close to the original watercolor painting as possible. Each print is unique and handmade. The quality paper is made from a manufacturer that has been making paper for over 420 years! Laryssa and her husband add love and attention to detail with each order. They hand cut the paper, make the giclee print, pack and mail it just for you.

Laryssa also believes in having beautiful art in your home at a price that is affordable. You don’t have to spend a fortune for quality, handmade paintings. Another great reason I think she is great!

Here are just some of her very beautiful and fun paintings...

One of my favorites.

I want this for my living room and pair it with this...

I love the little blue robin egg and speckled one!

This bluebird is just 1 of 4 from the series Bird Silhouette.

Love these!

How cute is this?! New summer prints in her shop now.

These are fun Scripture Prints.

This happy sheep is adorable!

You can buy this very cute tote bag in her Cafe Press store.

Lot's of other great items to buy as well.

So much more to see! All of her art work is fun, affordable and looks beautiful by itself or paired together.

Laryssa is not only a talented artist, successful business owner, but also a creative blogger. You feel connected to her by relating to her life experiences as a mother and wife which she shares on her blog. So many great tips on healthy, homemaking and frugal living. Make sure to stop by Heaven In The Home and say "hi" if you aren't a follower already.
