Right As Rain

Valerie Galloway's passion for all things Post-War Parisian—from French New Wave cinema to glamorous shots of her mother and her aunt—give her oeuvre a certain jeu d'esprit that is simply magnifique! Her pert and utterly posh characters exhibit the artist's ardor for costume and pattern and allow her to interpret and recapture her most frequented flicks as well as moments from her childhood.

This high-quality giclee print of Valerie's original watercolor painting depicts a brooding pair warmed by love as they stand drenched in a midday drizzle. Featuring Valerie's love of pattern, detail, and the characteristically French sense of fashion, this melancholic pair can add the certain je ne sais quois to the art lover or ardent Francophile's home. Printed on archival, Museo Portfolio Rag. Hand-signed and dated by the artist. Made in Arizona.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Valerie Galloway

I'm influenced by old family photos, especially ones of my French mother and her sister. They always looked so glamorous with their fabulous hairdos from the 1960's. I'm also inspired by French New Wave cinema, and old American TV shows from the 1960's and 70's. Recreating some of these looks is a way for me to recapture moments from my childhood, and I relish enveloping myself in the spirit of that era.

    Comments about THE STORM - VALERIE GALLOWAY:

    I gave this print to a friend for a wedding gift. It came quickly and was packed very well. I bought it framed and the framing was perfectly done. The print itself is lovely and just as it looks online. My expectations were pleasantly met with the purchase of this sweet print.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The delivery was prompt and actually earlier than the time-frame I was expecting which was great. The packing was done very well and the print arrived in perfect condition.
