My first Etsy purchase!

I am super thrilled as I did my first purchase on Etsy last week and my paintings have already been delivered. I have been browsing the art pages and saving my favorites for quite some time, but never got around to buying anything. Until I found Mandy Budan's BudanART on Etsy and fell in love with her style of painting. Mandy is an award winning Canadian artist, who is inspired by nature, but paints it in an abstract manner. Her paintings are just amazing, with the right mix of realism and abstract that made me want to buy it asap. I've always liked artwork that has a bit of realistic quality but with a twist, and what a beautiful twist this is.

My questions and concerns were answered so promptly and efficiently, that I was quite amazed, and my package was delivered in less than a week! Best of all, Mandy sent me a free gift, a print of one of her paintings! Such a wonderful surprise! I can't wait to frame them and have them up on my walls. The painting shown here is one of my purchases, but in a different size. I simply love it, for the colors, for the luminosity, for its variations as you step closer or further away. This time, I've just bought prints of her work, but I hope to buy originals too one day.
