Friday Feature

Here are some of my favorite Etsy items from this past week:

Big Island Spray by Richard Jesse Watson (here’s his shop)
I love the broad brush strokes and the way they work together to form a beautiful image; the juxtaposition of  the square strokes with the dotting portrays the crashing wave so vibrantly. So fantastic! There’s something to lovely and fresh about the spray of an ocean wave breaking against the rocks.

Meet Enoch. (Found at seboldsoriginals on Etsy). Enoch is prone to clumsiness, so he plays the triangle in band, to “feel dainty”.
This is a most fantastic creature! Not only is he adorable, I love his back story. You should most definitely go and check him out, as well as his other friends:

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
