Etsy Artist of the Week

This week I'd like to feature a photo magnet from AllieArt4Children. I'll be traveling to the coast soon w/ some childhood friends of mine. This photo made me think of them. We've known each other for so many years. Even though we haven't done our best to stay in touch, when we are together, it's as if we had never been apart. Here's to childhood friends! Click on the pic to see more of Allie's store.

A message from the artist:

I am a pediatrician by training, currently a stay-at-home mom of four wonderful little people. This career change has given me the opportunity to pursue my dream of finally "doing something" with my photography. Taking photographs and creating with them makes me really happy.

As you can see, most of my work involves nature and children. Through this etsy store, I am trying to combine by love of photography with my desire to continue to be an advocate for children. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I've enjoyed taking them.

Etsy Artist of the Week

I met this week's Etsy Artist of the Week in Etsy Chat, a fun place where all the craftsy people go to unwind. Meet WendyConradArt. Her rooster paintings are my favorites. Click on the pic below to see her entire store:

A word from the artist:

Title: "Red Butler"

Size: 5 1/2 inches by 5 inches by 3/4 inch deep

Medium: Acrylic on wood

Description: Original potrait of a rooster with a white background. Painted on wood reclaimed from a construction site that would have been discarded otherwise. Hangs on the wall by raffia looped through 2 holes drilled in the wood. Titled and signed by artist on the back.

Inspiration: Living in the rural North Georgia Mountains, there is animal inspiration everywhere. I love to paint farm animals, in particular roosters, chickens, and cows. Red Butler is a regal rooster! Part of the “Barn Blocks” series.
