The Little Astronaut


This cute painting was done in acrylic paint on wood, 
and was originally created as a company logo prototype.  



Super cute for a child's room with an astronomy theme.
Inspiring future astronauts...



This painting will be for sale on Friday when Cara Mia Bella's booth will be at the Garberville Farmers Market in the town square from 10 - 3.  I will also have my entire collection of cards, so come by and spend a beautiful summer day with me and all of the yummy organic fruits and veggies!  This will be my first time there, and could become a regular Friday gig...but I will still be visiting all of the fabulous artists at the Paint Party Friday!  You can visit them too by clicking below...

I love this! He's super cute and I love how it works so well painted on wood - I might have to try wood once I've used up all my mini canvasses!

This is sooo cute! Wish I lived closer, I'd stop by and say "hi" and spend some money at your booth.

Enjoy your weekend and hope you make lots of sales! :)

Good luck with the market!

that is a very cute little one! I love your screech owl too and I'm just a teensy bit envious that you live in the redwoods. I love going there and just sitting and listening to the trees talk.

Wish I could pop in for some organic goodies and to get a close-up look at your artwork. It's awesome! Not only is the color perfect for a child's room, it reminds me of a character, like "Harold and The Purple Crayon." You could go places with this little guy! :)

Carrie: It's my 1st time here and I LOVE it! What beautiful work! Enjoy Farmer's Market ... off to visit your Etsy shop ... Happy PPF all week long!
Thanks everyone! I truly appreciate your visiting here! I am super happy to finally get the chance to visit all of the Paint Party participants...

@Wednesday...this was originally a design prototype for a multimedia company that worked with different artists making tee shirts, and the astronaut would have been the logo for their kids line.

@Mary...I love the Redwoods!

@Ileana...he does remind me of Harold and the Purple Crayon, his little pajamas!

@Diane...there could be a series of little astronauts and other characters!

The market was a great success, much better than the 2-day event I attended in the rain...so, I will be there every Friday, but I'll still participate in Paint Party...have a great week!

What can I say I love everything you do! I love your little astronaut. Happy PPF just a little late this week.
