Today I wanted to talk about the new piece of art I just bought from the fantastic artist Cecy Meade! The other day I was perusing the Bear & Bird Boutique & Gallery (where I will have a piece in their Stitch Wars show this summer), and saw that their current show Made In Mexico was online. I looked through their online shop and saw a beautiful original piece by one of my favorite artists Cecy Meade and immediatly bought it. $20 for an original piece of artwork was more than a deal! I have been following Cecy Meade on Flickr for a while now (and have been totally blown away every time I see her work), so to own a piece of her artwork equals happiness for me! ♥
This is the piece I bought. I love the untraditional brown paper, the bright colours and the lines are so bold and confident. She reminds me of a John Kricfalusi (creator of Ren & Stimpy) style of cute girl. I’m very happy to add her to my art collection.
Go and check out the work from the Made In Mexico show that is available in Bear & Bird’s online shop. You just might find a piece of art that is both awesome and totally affordable. You can also check out Bear & Bird’s Flickr for pics of the whole show.
