Slowly, slowly in the studio

Little by little I have been creating a new Etsy Shop for Crooked Feather Studio to replace my old shop at Crooked Coop Farm. After working on my artwork for many years I feel I have developed a style and brand that I want to show off, and am ready to start new. My old shop had a lot of experiments with only some cohesiveness to it including upcycled crafts, wood signs, original paintings, wooden hearts and odds and ends. In my new shop you will now find my wood signs and original paintings. I intend to keep my new shop streamlined with focus rather than a place to experiment like I have done in the past. I don't want to rush this process so as of now you will only find a small amount listed, but as I go on I will be sure to update.  

Here are a few examples of what you can find in my new Etsy Shop. Hope you like what you see and be sure to stop by often. I appreciate any likes, favorites, pins and shares you have :)

This is a whitefish I painted on a piece of recycled pallet wood and hung with an upcycled chain. I love painting nature and painting it on distressed wood allows me to play with color and texture. I frequently layer many bright colors beneath my final image to create depth in my piece.  You can find this listing here in my shop.

Here is another pallet piece I made again using acrylic and layering my colors. I first painted the bare wood black before covering it with white, distressing it and hand lettering the piece with black fluid acrylic. This sign can be found listed here.

I quoted and painted a favorite song of mine by Carole King, Beautiful. I want my daughter to remember these words like I do and remember what an inspiration Carole King is.This inspiring little number can be found here.

And last but not least another favorite of mine Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This one I painted for my boys giving them words to look up to. My hope is that all of my children lead a simple, beautiful life never afraid to show the world who they are.  I have this piece listed here.

Like I said it is a slow start but you've got to start somewhere right? I will keep my old shop up for a while yet and will now only offer my recycled journals and alphabet block photo holders. Any ready to ship orders from either shop can still arrive in time for Christmas if ordered by December 21. If you would like a custom order it will need to be placed by December 19th to arrive in time.

Thank you for stopping by today!
