feature written by Elisabeth Walsh of AronaDesigns
Let's all give a warm welcome to Doris Ellen Lloyd of deldreamart and sewfunbags!
Doris, tell us a little about yourself!
I got started on etsy because my daughter found the website and told me about it. She felt it would be a great place on the web for me to sell my art work.
How did you choose your shop name(s) I choice deldreamart because first of all DEL is my initials. Then the dreamart sums what I love-to draw and paint. I think of my work as having a dreamy nature or feeling to it. Not everything I do fits that theme but it is what I love.
The bag shop came along much later has a result of how much I love to sew. I started out by opening up sewfunbags on this newsite www.Shophandmade.com .But after several months I was disappointed with the site, as it had nothing visual happening, so I canceled that shop and moved sewfunbags to Etsy where there was more action. My painted bags are the best part of this shop, they are unique in that I haven't seen anyone with bags like them.
I am currently working on two painted bags a horse and owl, a fantasy scene painting and concept sketches for my next painting (tree Town).
What would be your favorite item to feature? My favorite piece is my painting ( Rose meets Thorn) . This painting is about the fall, rose is good, thorn is evil the two meet and that is what life is like for us all. Life is a mixture of good and bad, stories are made up of good and bad, there is actually beauty in the contrast of things, that creates art. This creates the stories that make up life, but you can read what you want in the artwork and just enjoy the beautiful details.
What is your favorite bible verse? Matthew 6-34 "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is it's own trouble." I try to not let anything worry me but to embrace and enjoy each day,
