Another Edition of The Talented Faces of Etsy
If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times. The talent on etsy amazes me. There is something for everyone to love. Something for everyone to be inspired by. Let me introduce you to the work of some fellow illustrators and artists whose work I'd love to have.
First. Moon and Lion. Just found this wonderful shop yesterday. I'm loving the whimsical nature of Macky's art.
Maybe this one speaks to me because I'm from the Granite State, where we 'Live Free or Die'. Come on people, you have to love that for a state motto. Don't mess with us Granite Staters.
By the way, Macky lives on Mallorca, a Spanish island in the Mediterranean. Sounds heavenly.
Emma Leonard of Belafonte is an artist in Melbourne, Australia, where it's presumably the opposite of our cold, miserable winter weather today. I think her work is just lovely. I just discovered Emma today thanks to a front page treasury.
The colors, the lines, the detail. Just lovely.
Sometimes I even surprise myself with my tastes. Apparently I like abstract work more than I realized. I think it really brings focus on the colors of a piece. I think Noemia Prada's work deserves more attention.
Heads up though, if abstract just isn't your style, Noemia creates more than that. She also has a lovely collection of romantic mixed media works.
Anita Rivera's work will help you dream a little dream. Her magical touches abound in her shop Castles, Crowns and Cottages.
How sweet is this card from Anita's 'little blue coat' series?
Anita also has a lovely blog. Yup, you guessed it. Castlescrownsandcottages. You may want to check it out.
One last artist for you to share with you today. I really like Sara Feiss's illustration style.
I also like the fact that I'm not the only one with a gazillion ideas running around in my brain. Apparently, 'Julia' does too, thanks to Sara. However, it looks like Julia's thoughts are more about diamonds and mine are about projects.
Have you discovered any new artists lately, or rediscovered an artist you love? Let the cat out of the bag so we can all enjoy their art. Feel free to share a link to one of your favorite artists. It's fun seeing the variety of work out there.
I know, I know. I should walked across to the field for this one, but I had my she-booties (slipper-boots) on. And it was cold. There's no way denying this was a real smokey kind of sunset yesterday. I love it when my work day ends like this.
Smokey, right? Would I lie.
Hope all is well in your corner of the world. Snowed overnight here. Light but enough to cover the ground. A little punch of winter, before the temps rise again. Craziest winter weather, but I'll take it. I've had to haul much less wood this winter and that's not a bad thing.
