gretchen wagoner sent me the sweetest email a few weeks ago introducing me to her work. i couldn't help but love the fact that she has a couple drawings of capybaras. do you have any idea how cute capybaras are? AND they are the world's largest rodent! i'm not sure about you but cute and rodent aren't usually words that go hand in hand in my book. i mean i can appreciate a mouse, i can. but really folks, if you don't know what a capybara is you need to wiki it right this instant. ok, forget it, i did it for you.
ok, this isn't cute overload, let's get back to gretchen. her colors are so beautiful, painting in mauves, browns, beiges, and splashes of turquoise. they're perfect. plus if you're an animal lover gretchen paints and collages everything in the kingdom from wolves to hawks and yes, capybaras! check out her etsy store where you can pick up gocco prints, original paintings and collages and lots of other beautiful works.
