Every once in awhile, I'll take a deep dive into my Pinterest archives to get a glimpse of my past. Typically I walk away face-palming myself over how questionable my taste once was, but other times I'll stumble upon long-forgotten golden nuggets of goodness. The latter is precisely what happened when I re-discovered the artwork of Jessica Brilli.
Jessica is an oil painter based out of Massachusetts. It was her swimming-themed body of work that first caught my attention (having been a competitive swimmer for the majority of my life, swimming pools represent a whole suite of emotions for me), and I immediately fell in love with the vintage charm of her paintings. Her portrayal of analog life and scenes of simple living had me feeling nostalgic for an era I was never even alive in.
