The internet is a beautiful random world connecting billions of people from every continent. Yesterday while searching other bloggers blogs, I found Grace.(http://gracemaran.com/) All I saw was a pencil drawn picture of a puppy, A click later I was taken away by the talent she has. Not only drawings but detailed paintings!
Browsing through her pages you’ll see the dogs, cats, a horse and even a bull. It’s funny how in the mind we place a value on things instantly. For example, when you are in a store you grab a shirt, you like it, at that very moment you have already decided how much your willing to spend, (in your mind you say $14.99) turn tag over, 12.99 you buy it, 16.99 you debate in your mind if it is cute enough to pay the extra $2 but if it had said 18.99 most people wont go more than 15% over flash price point.
That mentioned when I clicked on her price page I wasn’t expecting them to be anywhere in my price range, I’ve seen paintings similar to these at high end decor stores for thousands of dollars. When I saw her drawings started at $65, I couldn’t believe it! I had been on her site less than 5 minutes and already found myself emailing her for an order.
As I have mentioned before I have two dogs and a cat, I have always wanted a drawing of my oldest dog for my husband! This got me to thinking, Americans spend more than 50 billion dollars a year on their pets. Everyone needs one of these. 2016 is the year for hand made hand crafted items. Supporting artist’s is something I am very passionate about even though I have no drawing skills of my own. I find it makes me appreciate every piece more, imagining the kind of talent it must of taken to create something so detailed.
Grace is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, but ships worldwide. I suggest everyone goes and takes a look! She emailed me back right away and is very kind and willing to work with deadlines and prices. (http://gracemaran.com/drawings/)
I’m excited to see what kind of image is created for Andy! I love my furbabies, now that decor is covered I need to find a get DIY got treat, link me below if you know of one!
So guys let me know, would you hang one of these in your house? My answer is YES.
