Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD Watercolor & Signs of Justice

Just about every single time I walk by this yard on Carroll Avenue in the summer I stop and take photos of the bees, butterflies and blooms. This time, it was the colorful “We Believe” sign that caught my eye. Later as I was sketching from the photos, I realized I couldn’t see all of the words at the bottom so I searched online and found  Jameesa Oakley’s Etsy shop – SignsofJustice — ( you can order your own yard sign at the link!). They have other great signs too, so check them out!

Matted prints and note cards of my painting are available from my Etsy shop, MichelleBaileyArt.

Like the yard sign? You can get one at Signs of Justice!

“Hello Takoma Park” & “Iceland” Prints Now Available

I have just listed two new prints made from my original paintings which you can purchase at my Etsy shop.

Hello Takoma Park and Iceland paintings by Michelle Bailey

“Hello Takoma Park” is a colorful cityscape painting of downtown Takoma Park, MD that I created using acrylic paint and a ballpoint ink pen on an artist panel. “Iceland” is an acrylic landscape painting of the Skagafjardarsysla region in Iceland. I used Google Street View (GSV) locations as a reference, which can be viewed by scanning the QR codes included with the prints. I’d like to give a special thanks to Bill Guffey for creating the Virtual Paintout which inspired me to keep painting while I was housebound and recovering from an injury. Anyone can participate. I hope you enjoy these new paintings and feel inspired to create your own! virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/

Printed with archival inks on acid-free paper. 8×10″ overall size of mat. Painting information, signature and print care are on the backing board. Wrapped in a protective cello bag. Ready to frame or for gift giving.
