Elizabeth Ruffing’s new Etsy shop is now open.
I’ve stocked it with many of my fine art giclées and a couple of original art quilts as well. Update: We’ve moved these items to our collective Etsy shop and Elizabeth’s Etsy shop is now for her original art toys.
This is a fine art giclée print of my original watercolor painting, “The Rabbit Dances”.
This is a one-of-a-kind original art quilt wall hanging of hand-dyed batiks framing a canvas print of my original watercolor, “Valentine”, which shows a pale pink iris on a muted magenta, Art Nouveau-inspired wallpaper background.
I designed a banner for our Ruffing’s site’s new blog, which is meant to take over where our “In Progress” page left off. I used details from paintings by my mom, A E Ruffing, and myself. I think it will be easier to update than redoing the web page regularly to announce our new art. I still have to go through the site and update the navigation to include the new blog…lots of work ahead.
This blog is meant to continue where our “In Progress” page left off. I’ve switched to a blog format to allow for greater ease in keeping everyone updated on our most recent paintings, giclées, art quilts, and art dolls.
I’ve also been working on a new web site, The Art of Elizabeth Ruffing. It features my personal studio blog, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at my studio and my latest creations. Please visit and have a look around!
I just printed my Johnny Jump-ups photograph on art paper and it looks almost like a watercolor, all in soft lavenders and cream on dark green leaves. It’s such a lovely and peaceful image. I took this photo over at Duke Chapel, in Durham, NC. I think it will be even more beautiful when it’s framed.
