ARTIST FEATURE~~~~ DONNA ROSE

I have decided to do a monthly (possibly bi- weekly) artist feature on my blog. I will choose some inspiring ETSY artists and introduce you to their colorful world!

DONNA ROSE!!!
The choice for my first feature was an easy one. I find myself daily staring at the amazing work of Donna Rose. She is an artist from Montana who paints the most wonderful floral pieces. She also has an amazing ability to capture the movement and life in animals of all kinds. She uses mostly oils and watercolors to create her work.

I asked Donna a few questions :
Donna, WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I find inspiration in life, colors and textures!
WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE PIECES?
I like a piece that let's me know I am done and I am not struggling with it.
A FEW WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR ART?
Color, texture, impressionism and sanity (art helps me keep my sanity).
ANY WORDS TO LIVE BY?
Paint for yourself! (which I really need to apply instead of painting what I think others will like)
WHERE CAN WE FINE YOUR WORK?
I have two etsy shops.
check out Donna's amazing and inspiring work at http://artbydonnarose.etsy.com/ and be sure to check in for another ARTIST SPOTLIGHT!
