Julie Schronk's Southern Folk Art at BadCat7 at Etsy

Julie Schronk is a folk artist of the old Southern school. It's something I wish I could do myself, but I can't quite get that same unselfconscious joyfulness, that total lack of reserve in the work. Julie knows how to do it. She's a Texas gal who obviously loves Bayou Country. Look beyond the apparent simplicity of her art, and you'll see a wealth of surprises. A lot of thought goes into these.

Check out Julie's store BadCat7 at Etsy (interesting name...). There are many paintings there, all as humorous and colorful. Glad Squeakie Stone pointed you out to me, Julie.
