Texas Original Acrylic painting by MichelleKendrick
I happened upon Michelle Kendrick's etsy shop the other day and was immediately impressed with her mixed media works. I especially love her 50 States series, because you know how I have a soft spot for anything remotely map related. But really I love her colors and how she uses white highlighting to give her works an ethereal feel that contrasts with the earthiness of the maple she paints on and the straightforwardness of the states. She also has some really wonderful figure studies in her shop. In fact, she's only had one sale in this shop so far, so you'll have a real trove of treasures to choose from when you check it out.
