I’m pleased to announce the arrival of Patricia…Angel of Pansies! Pansies are among the oldest known garden flowers, and I like to think that over the years, some garden angels have been at work to create such beautiful blooms.
Patricia is one of these angels. When she picks a pansy from the garden, two more will bloom in its place.
Patricia is a true one-of-a-kind original work of art, created from my own design and pattern. She is made from 100% cotton fabric, which is sewn, stuffed, and completely hand-painted with acrylic paints. She comes with her own oval wood stand, oak-stained and finished.
Update: Patricia has already been adopted.
I’d like to extend a special thank you to Darla Dixon for featuring us on her blog. Thanks Darla! You can see her pencil portraits and other drawings on her web site and in her Etsy shop.
Our Ruffing’s Etsy shop has some new additions. We’ve listed quite a few fine art giclées in our shop. These are a small sampling. Above is “Oriole and Daylily”, depicting a Northern Oriole perched on an orange daylily.
This is “Hiding”, showing a little Eastern cottontail rabbit tucked away among the black-eyed Susans.
And this is “Sunday Morning”, a country porch scene with a rocking chair, all in blues and greens.
All of these giclée prints are based on original watercolor paintings by A E Ruffing, and are printed on heavy-weight fine art paper.
These are two new fairy art giclée prints for our Ruffing’s web site. Both are a standard size 8.5 by 11 inch image size on 9.5 x 12 inch fine art paper. Both are fantasy pieces based on my original watercolor and pen and ink paintings. Above is “Moon and Star” which depicts the moon as a woman with butterfly wings and a star as a young girl. Both are descending toward the horizon at dawn.
is entitled “The Moon Sings a Lullaby
“. I was imagining what kind of lullaby the moon would sing, if the moon could sing, to help people drift off to sleep. I thought of the sounds of katydids
, which I’ve
always loved to listen to on summer nights. And I thought of the poppy field in The Wizard of Oz
, which caused Dorothy and her friends to fall asleep on their way to The Emerald City. This is the moon singing us all to sleep with a lullaby full of poppies
Both prints are also available in my Etsy shop
