I was very anxious waiting for these beauties and finally here they are!! Two gorgeous art prints from wonderful artist Julie (The Ruby Nest).

A Bird in the Hand

This is a print from one of Julie´s original paintings made with acrylics, charcoal, and antique stain. It was printed on a professional soft photo paper that accents the beautiful colors.

Julie is a full time mom with a full time job that still has time to create beautiful art and besides that, she says that she has an even worse full time animal addiction!!! Julie became addicted to art when she realized that art itself is her "muse".

Princess Fauna of the Finches

This second print, "Princess Fauna of the Finches" is a beautiful representation of Julie's love for animals. She painted it for a give-away that she had on her blog to celebrate her 100 followers, and Julie was so kind and generous that she send me one of the prints just for posting about that give-away here in my blog. I'm very honored and thrilled to be the owner of these beautiful pieces of art.

Please, visit Julie at her blog here and at her Etsy shop here
and enjoy her sweet, delicate and beautiful art.

I have always believed that yellow is a happy color! And I have a different feeling for each different color: pink is sweet and love, green is healing, violet is mystic, red is life and passion... I always design my jewelry following that color feeling. These yellow glass flowers are all happiness and will be in my Etsy shop soon.

And this little lady here doesn't look very happy but she is courious about the big yellow butterfly and the strange flowers. She is Gala and is my new painting. Gala is all love (named after my favorite pet). I take good care of her and she knows that love blossoms...

I am so lucky that I found this wonderful Etsy Shop with incredible art. She is Flor and her shop is Flor Larios Art. Flor is a self-taught Latin American artist that lives in the US since 1980. She creates beautiful art with angels, fairies, butterflies, and ladybugs.

Flor is having a Big Sale in her shop during this week and you can buy one of her prints for only $5.00!!

I bought this beautiful print, In Heaven With My Dog, that is a reproduction of one of her originals. It is printed professionally on a high quality Epson matte paper.

Frida Kahlo is also Flor's inspiration and she has gorgeous Frida's prints like the one I bought "Frida Kahlo With Parrot".

Flor sells wearable art too, that is not on sale right know but I couldn't resist and bought this beautiful hand-made wood pendant, "Angel of Tenderness". It measures 2x1 inches long and has a beautiful antique crackle finish.

If you want more information about Flor and her art you can visit her Etsy shop here and her Blog here. And you will now why Flor Larios Art is also one of my inspirations.
