It's Raining Cats & Dogs

An Etsy Favourites theme for a typical British Summer!


Spiraln is Steven Leary's shop, selling Limited Edition Prints, T-shirts and notecards all featuring his original artwork. His style is cartoony with lovely bright, friendly characters. I loved the bright colours in this cute print, called Puss In Boots.

Valerie of Shaggy Creations describes her art as 'a little bit of whimsy and a touch of class'. Her shop contains bright and fun art prints featuring dogs and cats in many different guises. This wonderful print of a Valentine's Welsh Corgi caught my eye for this week's favourites.

This is David Hayward's art print shop on Etsy. He says, " There is something mystical, contemplative and minimal in my art", and I would agree with this. The ACEO print that caught my eye, called Shelter of Another is very simple, but tells a great story. It made me smile and I think it is truly gorgeous.

This shop features the work of two artists, Robert David and Marie Bretz. It contains original artwork, prints and other products such as notecards. The painting that caught my eye is called Silver Lining and is a Limited Edition 8" x 10" print. It is lovely and bright and reminded me of me, walking my own dogs in the rain!

Last but definitely not least is this shop featuring some absoloutely brilliant pencil drawings. As an artist who draws in graphite myself, I love looking at other pencil artist's work. Sheona's is highly detailed and realistic. If you are a Horse lover, this is the place to visit. The drawing that caught my eye though, was this ever so cute Labrador Puppy, peering round a pair of wellies.

I hope you have enjoyed this week's favourites, even though they were so late. I had great fun finding them, I love looking at other artists' work. The great thing about all the featured art is they are available as prints or notecards, so are a very affordable way of owning some great pieces of art.
