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.
