Top Knot (and a braid)

I saw one of Elizabeth Mayville’s ‘Top Knot’ paintings on a Tumblr the other day and immediately had to find out more about the artist. Based in Michigan, Elizabeth is a professional artist whose work focuses on the home and the little details that make up the beauty in daily life. I am utterly charmed by her series of ladies and their best accessory — their hair. Wouldn’t a gallery of these be so cute in a bathroom?

From her blog, I realized Elizabeth has recently gotten some good press, so a lot of her original paintings are now sold out. However, the braid painting and a couple other top knot works are still up for grabs. Total Christmas list kind of item, don’t you think?
