Beautiful watercolors of animals

 Here are some examples of another Etsy artist's watercolors.

"I paint to be happy. I get grumpy after a few days of not painting. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget how happy they make me. I mope around for a while and think, "What's wrong?" Then it dawns on me..."Oh, yeah, I haven't painted in awhile." -- Rachelle Levingston

Colorful Acrylic Paintings on Etsy by Matt Hamblen (Mattsart)

I love finding new artists on Etsy and there are so many of them.  But this artist is one of my favorites.

"I'm a lifelong artist, and a painter for about 20 years. I've been online since 1999.

My work is exclusively in acrylics. I'm obsessed with the drive to create, as I come from an artistic family tree. Many in my family are creative types, and Dad is still painting to this day.

My art is simply about making people happy, as that's all I've ever wanted to do in life."   Matt Hamblen

Just look at these gorgeous colors!
