Lulu Sandbar at Etsy

In a somewhat strange and rebellious mood this morning, I spotted some strange and somewhat rebellious images at Etsy. Lulu Sandbar is an artist who likes to think outside the box, so to speak. I imagine she'd be rather fun at dinner. The following are just a small selection of her work, from mixed media collage assemblage, to (non-toy) decorative dolls, to her beloved button cards - tiny pieces of vintage art, with a special emphasis on brides. She is currently inspired by the graphics, advertising and color of the 60s and 70s.

You have to admit that these are pretty impressive. Forget those bland, everyone-has-one landscape prints, and consider one or two of these in your living room. Go take a look at ALL her art - and there's a lot there - at Lulu Sandbar at Etsy. Check out her profile, too, where she refers to that word "sandbar". Lulu is a bit of a poet, I think.

Electra (who snuck over from my writing blog) won the strawberry gateau painting "On Borrowed Time" which I offered last week.

I've also donated another little picture to Jenny at the Alley Cat Rescue site. (Go visit her art blog. She loves visitors.)

Finally, I've spent the last couple of days re-doing my own website. You all take me so much for granted, looking at all the other clever artists I feature on my blog, that perhaps you don't quite remember that I also paint and have the occasional silly notion of selling my own art, too. Please take a quick look and let me know what you think.
