One of the things I most love about my blog is the opportunity it gives me to ‘meet’ other artists and crafters and people who make things. One such person is Christy DeKoning, a talented artist who I recently ‘met’ online but coincidentally also lives in Ontario. She paints watercolour portraits and also sells small ACEO-sized paintings in her Etsy store.
When I visited Christy’s website I fell in love with the most adorable ACEO puppy painting I have ever seen. A few days later, and I now own my first piece of original artwork! My painting “Puppy Dog Eyes” is, in reality, even more special that I had hoped for – look at that eye! And I just love the colouring.
I’ll be framing it soon and I’ll hang it somewhere in my craft room. Christy also accepts commissions, so I hope my furbaby Maui is feeling photogenic, because he’s about to become immortalized in watercolour… 🙂
