Friday Feature & Giveaway: Partly Sunny Studio

Today's Friday Feature is...

  
Rachel is the artist - and a wonderful one at that.  She has a great attitude and lovely art pieces that you have to go and see for yourself!
 
What will you find in this lovely Etsy shop? 
 



You will find original abstract modern artwork and fine art prints; palette knife impasto paintings on gallery wrapped canvas. Trees, flowers, birds, animals, landscapes... and custom artwork commissions are always welcome!


Plus, the shop donates at least 10% of the purchase price from every painting sold. The money will be given to organizations such as World Wildlife Fund and Save Tigers Now.  How cool is that?


I was curious to know the answer to the next question: How did your shop get its name?  This was the answer (and I love it):
You know when you're looking up the weather, and they say it will be 'partly sunny' or 'partly cloudy'? I've always thought that funny -- because if it is partly sunny, then it must also be partly cloudy (and vice versa), right?  So it seems a matter of 'is the glass half empty or half full?' and partly sunny = half full = good; so Partly Sunny Studio won the name game! :)


I asked Rachel if she has a favorite color that she likes to use in her art and why.  This was her reply:
Blue! I use way too much blue. I'm not really sure why... Lately, though, I've been trying very hard to broaden my horizon and use other colors more often! 

Rachel is offering a Set of 6 Watercolor Note Cards to one lucky 2justByou Blog reader!  It's easy to enter, just read below:

Loved the notecards - all of them. Thanks for the opportunity to ready them. Now, as a longtime follower (and recipient from you of nice comments too!) I'm hoping I can bother you for additional views, please. In 2013, am thinking of using www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com as a base for kigs' books. What think you? Honest views much appreciated. Thanks for your time, in between everything else you do - but because of those acitivities, think you'd have definitely useful comments to give me!

All the best for the upcoming holidays - and thanks for the Blogging Buddies team site! Do find it helpful being a member!
