Wildwood!

I've been hard at work (if you can call it that) on some "functional art" wood pieces! I used to sell larger pieces on eBay all the time, but since moving to Etsy, I haven't focused as much on them. Mainly, I like to keep my art affordable, and the larger paintings take longer, thus making them more expensive. I've had several requests that I bring these items back though, so I'm trying to paint my way through my huge hoard of wood items...here's a glimpse into my studio shelving (warning, it's a little scary):



I decided to start with one of my wall racks, and I got a little wild on it! ;) This little lady is kind of a wood nymph meets sugar skull...

That's absolutely amazing, she looks great! And as soon as I get a place of my own, I will be getting some of your functional art!

Love the vivid colors on that one! I've also made a pact with myself to use up some of my amassed supplies here before I'm allowed to buy anything else.

We'll see how long that lasts, eh?

Wow, a shelf that holds all your stuff! Great idea! Yeah, obviously I don't have one!!!
I love this piece, especially her hair, and the way you worked flowers into it. Beautiful <3
Can't wait to see what you make next!
