THIS IS A LITTLE GAME I LIKE TO PLAY CALLED "FIND THINGS ON ETSY AND MAKE THEM MYSELF FOR FREE... AND BETTER"
My Dad and Step Mom love to collect art and enjoy meeting artists and going to craft fairs and such, their house is filled with art and I love it! My sisters always joke that part of their house is a "shrine to Dara".
My Dad is pretty awesome and has my paintings from elementary school up until college hanging amongst his collection. (awww love you Diddles!) ... he has this thing where every time he sees something really cool, he thinks "Dara could make that". I have yet to replicate anything he has actually really asked for... like that stupid 38x46 painting of a polar bear with a red background? I wasn't interested Dad, it's just not cool, sorry.
But, like my Dad, I always see things and think "well that's cool, I can definitely do that". I don't know how successful I really am, but here is a collection of fun prints I designed and are meant to be matted and placed in a small frame. I'll admit, some of these I copied directly from other artists, but most of them I took the idea as inspiration and put my own spin on it. And if you find a print you fancy, I'll even print it for you for free! It just may cost you a frame.
