Friendship

Today I’m featuring the delightful watercolor illustrations of Caitlin McGauley.

Her bright colors and simple subjects are fun and refreshing and a reflection of a girl who revels in purchasing a new paint color as much as new shoes!

Caitlin McGauley offers her works through her website, private commissions, and causes close to her heart. I also love seeing her illustrations over at Kate Spade’s website, Lonny, and Daily Candy.

That’s the title of my post today because Caitlin’s work is reminding me of someone special.Watercolor Illustration | Caitlin McGauley A friend who I’ve come to know through blogging.  Imagine that!

Actually there are many bloggers who will tell you that they too are delighted to call her a friend.
