Etsy Shop that I LOVE

Happy Tuesday all!

Today I want to share with you an Etsy shop that I love.

I recently moved home and country from the UK to the Netherlands. Now I love my new flat, but it is a little plain and I can't just paint the walls (rented) so I have been looking at artists on Etsy to brighten up the place. This is when I discovered this shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DeanCrouserArt

Dean Crouser is a very talented man from Oregon USA. He explains on his profile,

 'I am a lifelong outdoor enthusiast, born and raised in the Portland area. I grew up camping, fishing and hiking on the foothills of Mt Hood, Columbia River Gorge and Central Oregon high lakes and these areas still provide major inspiration to my work today.'

You can tell his passion of wildlife, animals and being outside is in each brush stroke on his work. I have bought 4 paintings from him! I adore water colour, how fluid the paint is and how bright the works are. I also have a 'thing' for peacocks and hummingbirds, so seeing these paintings were a joy. So I bought them!

I am still waiting for them to arrive, hopefully they will turn up this week. I cannot wait to frame them and hang them on my wall!

I also bought a painting of a boxer dog, as my partner adores boxers and I thought it would make a great gift for him.

If you're looking for art work, do check out Etsy for some really talented artists!
