I've been lucky to discover some wonderful artists on etsy over the past week or two. Each with their own unique style and perspective.  I hope you enjoy them as much as me, and if you know of an artist that you think I should check out, give them a shoutout in the comments.

First up, Secrets of the Sea by Pale Preoccupation

Secrets Of The Sea--signed Print of an Original Ink and Acrylic Painting--PalePreoccupation

...and Bedtime Stories. There is something about this one that reminds me of my Gram, especially some of the older pictures of her (one of which I posted here awhile ago).

Love the whimsical nature of the art that Ruth-Mary from Patchworkfamilies creates. 'Home' makes me want to pull my old typwriter out. If only it looked like this.

And, 'Oh Sew Happy' really gives me a hankering to sew. Alas, I still have to purchase a replacement for my sewing machine which died in a basement flood last year.

I love the use of light in this painting entitled Long Shadows by Lisa Schultheis

This illustration, 'My Dream Garden' by Yvonne Stewart of Coramantic was created using gouache, pen, ink and pencil.  So very lovely.

Really wonderful use of colors as a statement of her artistry.

I leave you with one more by Sadee Schilling.

Have a great Sunday. I'm off to a community baby shower that my friend Sarah organizing. She's a high schooler and the shower benefits 'The Baby Closet' at her church, which helps out families who are less fortunate. Such a great thing, because everyone needs a little help now and then.

If you haven't linked up in our current shop link up party, be sure to stop by and add your shop and/or blog. You could be featured on Mercantile Muse tomorrow!
