As an artist I of course love to make art. But I also absolutely love art from other artists as well and every so often I give in to that temptation. This year I have splurged. I took the plunge and double dipped. These two babies now belong to me!
This beautiful piece was made by Rebecca Crowell and actually includes volcanic sand from the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. Rebecca is an artist I have been following for several years. I have been waiting for just the right painting to purchase and it was finally born in January 2010. Be sure to stop by Rebecca's blog as she has written a fascinating post about the joy of knowing where your artwork ends up after you send it out into the world.
This wonderful artwork was made by John Borrero. I had originally met John at the One of the Kind Show, which I had posted about here. John creates the most amazing mixed media sculptures but has recently opened up an Etsy shop which showcases his small paintings.
