Ready to Hang
I created this piece after the terrible BP oil spill, and a friend of mine suggested the title 'The Ocean Before BP' after I showed her the finished painting.
The well-being of the earth and all the amazing creatures on it is very important to me, and I hope that shows in my work. You know the expression "Treat others as you would like to be treated"? I think we should treat everything as we would like to be treated; not only other people, but animals and the environment as well. Every living thing deserves some respect and compassion. :)
Hi there! My name is Rachel, I am a self taught artist living in New York. I've been an artist all my life -- from the moment I picked up my first crayon, lol. Colored pencils followed, then watercolors and charcoal, finally moving on to acrylic paint and canvas. My goal is to make art that will hopefully make people happy when they look at it; to make the world a little more beautiful, one wall at a time! ;) Creating custom commissioned paintings is one of my favorite things about being an artist -- I really enjoy creating a piece that is just what the customer was looking for. Thanks so much for taking a look at my artwork (and caring enough to check out my Artist Bio). I hope you find my artwork to your liking! ;) P.S. Follow me on Twitter (@PartlySunnyArt) to see pics of paintings-in-progress and keep in touch! And if you'd like to see even more of my artwork check out my website at PartlySunnyStudio.com! :)
