Handmade for the Holiday: Nudes
You can't get much more 'handmade' than original artwork. One of my favorite artists is Gretchen Kelly, and I was very delighted to see she opened an Etsy shop.
Her landscapes are to die for, but I personally think she's best at nudes. She sketches with such fluidity and really captures women in their natural state.
Word of caution: not many people are brave enough to hang nudes in their home, so be careful when giving today's holiday gift suggestion! But I promise you, any art collector who adores classical nudes will be sure to fall hard for Gretchen's pieces:
XXXV.1 by Gretchen Kelly - $25
XLVI.2 by Gretchen Kelly - $40
XXXIV.2 by Gretchen Kelly - $35
Here is a picture of a beautiful nude in a beautiful black room (I'm really on a roll with the black rooms this week, aren't I??)
