I heart Belle & Boo

I feel like I am the last one to discover Belle & Boo, I don't know how these gorgeous illustrations have slipped under my etsy radar? I love, love LOVE them!

I heart Carambatack!

Look at these sweet girls.. They are by Annette of Carambatack Designs. Check out her Flickr Photstream too. I admire people who can draw faces and people, it's something I am working on at the moment.. but it isn't coming easily! I went to an art class last week which resulted in an attempt at a self portrait - it is currently in no state to share, but maybe if I keep working on it.. one day you might see it!

I heart BluePumpkinJuice!

Have you seen the adorable work of Jessica from BluePumpkinJuice? I was lucky enough to be browsing through the art listings on Etsy, on the very day that Jessica started listing on BluePumpkinJuice.. I think I was one of the very first people that hearted her, and I'm a huge admirer of her work as she continues to add to her shop.

I heart Polar Bears!

Besides birds, rabbits, and balloons.. I also have a little thing for polar bears. Especially baby ones, they are so cute and look very cuddly. There are so many cute bear artworks on etsy - many already from my favourites, but I was excited to discover a couple more as well. I am sharing my favourites with you before I show you one of my very first polar bear paintings.

I heart TummyMountain, especially this rabbit!

You know that feeling when you see something and fall in love with it instantly? Well that happened to me today when I stumbled across this big rabbit from TummyMountain. I have a thing for rabbits at the moment, I've painted some today, and just finished a print I will be posting soon. Last week, I even travelled about an hour to my husbands workmate's house, spent the afternoon watching them play tennis.. just so I could have a cuddle with some pet rabbits he has at his house. They were so cute. Click on the pics to visit TummyMountain.. you will love it there!
