pretty paintings


FeathersPrint from an original ink drawing, ink on sugar cane paper available through Groundwork on Etsy

I can't get enough of pretty paintings lately.  Watercolor, gouache, acrylic.  I love them all and the creamier the texture, the better.  I love the colors that Danna Ray uses in her beautiful pieces: cool, dark, dreamy.  Somehow her choice of color adds to the mysterious undertones of her work.  A little bit whimsy mixed with sweetness and light, her paintings evoke sighs from me as I linger over each one.  Take a look....

I wish I was the girl in the painting right now!  It looks like such a lovely place.  Good Company, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

I'm Sorry But You Were Holding Me Back, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

This piece makes my heart hurt a bit.  Maybe its conjuring up a sweet childhood memory.  In the Light, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

This one reminds me of my camping adventures with Jake...The Weather Was Nice, We Slept in the Grass, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

Departures, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

Packing Light, limited edition print, ink on sugar cane paper

I could go on forever listing all of Danna Ray's beautiful pieces but instead, I ask you to check out her beautiful site and portfolio to see some of her amazing originals.  You should also check out her Etsy shop Groundwork to take a look at her lovely limited edition prints.  

Thanks so much Danna!

the first one with the feathers is my favorite... and the girl reading in the woods is a close second. :)

Yeah, that's a tough one. I love them both too! However, I would like all of them really. :)
