My sister-in-law, Wendy, is a very talented artist and just started her own etsy shop. It's www.therealdiehl.etsy.com. She has done some great charcoal sketches which I think are lovely and I hope she posts some. Phil and I are going to commission her to do a charcoal portrait of us. But here are a few of her pieces in acrylic.
I love this one! On Monday we went to the Cathedral of the Madeline in Salt Lake City. While sitting outside by the fountain we saw this great Monarch butterfly feeding on some flowers near by. Wendy caught the scene with her awesome Nikon camera (which I fell in love with!) and just a few days later she has this great series of three paintings of said scene. She's quick!She still needs her first sale, so check her out and if you like it buy it!
