This is my 6x6NW Art Show Submission

Follow the White Rabbit Painting

This is my 6″ x 6″ painting that I’m submitting to the 6x6NW Art Show put on by The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Art Council.  I do enjoy donating art on occasion. It is titled “Follow the White Rabbit.” It is an acrylic on wood panel. It features a little white bunny in a dense yet colorful forest. Is the sun setting or rising? I think it is setting. What do you think? I grew up in Lake Forest Park so…

My Favorite Raven Art Mugs

natalie-warrens-raven-mug

I love raven art mugs! Ravens are such mischievous, interesting characters. Some people love them, some people hate them. I love them! And you can find raven art in my paintings quite a bit.

It’s funny how one tends to pick certain mugs to…
