To continue on with their Spring Fever originals, Hallmark debuts A Brush with Love. A story that follows an aspiring artist named Jamie Spellman (Arielle Kebbel). Just as she determines it’s time to let go of her dream (because life is a reality check), and follow the sensible path, something changes. With the urging of her friend, she creates a kind of inspiration board that shows a shadowed portrait of her ideal man. Only as time goes by, she discovers that though her chance encounter with a businessman seems ideal, it might not be so.
A Brush with Love (2019) Hallmark Review
Oftentimes prior to watching a film from this station, I know little about it. This also applies to A Brush with Love. Though it seems to suggest a cute story inside, I go in mostly blind and hope to discover a charming and sweet story awaits; a conclusion that holds true 100% of the time. This one is also sweet though perhaps not my most favorite, but what is fun is to see former Hallmark leading lady Kebbel return.
Prior Hallmark roles put Kebbel in a co-star role with Andrew Walker (a fan favorite) in A Bride for Christmas and Bridal Wave. In this, Kebbel is an easy to like character. The romance starts a little rough because of the characteristics of one character, who Nick Bateman plays.
There is still a lot of cute romantics, which in my book forgives anything. I like some of the back-and-forth banter, and appreciate that this carries through in the relationship. All that to say, this works through any minor kinks as the script presses on, and in the end, everything works out as it should – happily.

The story is colorful and perfectly spring like as it should be. There’s a strong sense of friendship, and I like the artistic side of the story. The art is colorful, and some unique which makes them memorable. Plus, the scenery is so pretty. It’s all about the bright hues of flowers, which means there’s a few scenes in a botanical garden; a setting that’s not only perfectly appropriate for a seasonal romance, but also makes the romantic moments all the dreamier.
Add A Brush with Love to your DVR; especially those of you who, like me, enjoy wholesome romantic-comedies. This one will surely make you smile.Catch #Hallmark's #SpringFever 2019 original #ABrushwithLove – When Art Becomes Love Language. Arielle Kebbel stars in this artistic #romance! Click To Tweet
