Hostas Turtles and Lake Murray

Filed under: hosta, lake murray, turtle — laurenmaurerartworks @ 9:34 pm

I met the sweetest lady through The Art Spot recently when she bought a print of my succulent painting. She also lives on Lake Murray- She is redoing her great room and the colors in that print were the exact colors that she was looking for. She looked me up online, found my blog, emailed me and asked me to do a larger painting in those colors… and after touring her beautiful home and beautiful gardens, we decided that the area called for two paintings and that they should include her favorite plant, hostas, turtles and the lake. Here’s what we came up with! It was an awesome project because usually when I’m commissed to do something it is a picture of someone or something or a place or a pet… but for this I got to incorperate things that she loved, her home, her own garden, and in her favorite colors.They are both watercolor on cold press.


  1. I like how you hid the turtles in there among the plants. It took me a while to spot it in the first one!

  3. This a great story and what a sweet way to collaborate with your client. She's very lucky to own 2 of your originals. Love them! They came out brilliant, Lauren.
