1. Leigh Viner of jkldesign (check out her Etsy here) - I am bowled over by her stunning artwork. This is the kind of stuff I want to do but can't ... really beautiful and loose strokes but so much structure and depth to her subjects. Again, the 'old' colors - the thick lines of deep pink coral and brown-turquoise. Love love love. Click here to learn more about this Denver-based artist.

2. Samantha Battersby of Matou En Peluche - I found here some of the most darling cat prints *ever*. I have 2 gray cats (one silver tabby with apple-green eyes and one petite Chartreau look-alike with gold eyes) so these sweet blue/grey cats are especially endearing. Here are 3 of my favorites.

3. Mike Barr - These paintings remind me just a little bit of a wonderful woman who used to paint bright scenes from her homeland. The misty, reminiscent feeling makes the prints look like they are out of a dream ... or maybe it's just a warm, hazy day at the beach. Check out his blog, Art Of Barr, here.
