One of my dearest friends who I've known since grade school has started her own blog showcasing her artistic talents, ideas, inspiration, and randomness. She's a wonderfully gifted artist, creating whimsical pieces with childlike innocence that makes each piece universal for adults and children. Read her bio on her website. She recently listed a few of her pieces on etsy. Here's one of my favorites:
"Red Headed Mermaid" (11"x14" acrylic and sharpie on canvas)
