Grand Opening: Etsy Shop!

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. To that end, this writer’s finally putting her paintings where her mouth is.

After months of talking about launching an Etsy shop, LMPeltierDesigns has gone live at last!

So if there’s a spot on your wall looking for its perfect match painting, I may have just the one sitting in my shop. Think of me as the Yente of wall art.

Watercolor is my medium of choice, because as a surfer/swimmer/life-long-aquaphile, it just seemed right. As for my subject-matter, it skews toward snapshots of the wild world. I aim for detailed, dynamic portraits of creatures great and small–a way to bring a little of the fierce, exotic loveliness of nature indoors.

Current series include:

Alaska series:

Alaska 1: Sushi for Dinner

My undersea collection:

Etsy, Shop, LMPeltierDesigns, Shark, Tuna, Wahoo, Wave, Surf, Ocean, Watercolor, Painting
Devil Down Below

Morning Commute

I’ll admit it: this Etsy shop undertaking isn’t sans anxiety for me. As someone currently in the query trenches with her historical novel–and therefore experiencing plenty of rejection already, thank you very much–I sometimes wonder if I’m a glutton for punishment, opening myself up to hear “no, thanks” in another artistic arena.

But I really do have just one life to live. Now seems like as good a time as any to step out on a new limb.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your GOD will be with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9
