Beautiful, isn't it? This is an example of the stunning photos you can see at October54Gallery on Etsy, this week's BESTeam featured shop. Anne from Whispering Pines, NC (I bet that's a lovely place!) is responsible for these works of art, and it's no surprise to learn that her work is on display at many local venues too.
I've chosen just three of my favourites from this shop, so as to have them shown to best advantage. Regular blog readers will be able to see the themes of nature in the ones I've picked. Click on any of the photos or captions to go directly to the shop and see more.
Anne says that art has always been a part of her life, and living all over the USA as well as time in Costa Rica, has also influenced her artist's eye. Anne also makes block prints and writes.
Anne's work has a strong positivity for me, so it was a pleasure to find this quote from Walt Whitman in one of her listings:
Happiness not in another place, but this place...
not for another hour, but this hour.
I love this quote too from Anne's blog:
"The afterthought is good, but forethought is better."
