Etsy Finds Friday - Rachel Parker

It's **Etsy Finds Friday**
Today I am featuring the
Beautiful Watercolor Paintings
 Created by:
Rachel Parker of
Fine Art by Rachel Parker

Rachel's paintings are so beautiful and full of life, I love all of her work!
She is a self taught artist, so amazing! 
She definitely captures the soul of the animal in her paintings.

In the Artist's Own Words: 
I am Rachel Parker, a self taught artist. I come from a family of artists; my mother is a award-winning portraitist and my father is an award-winning photographer, so art must be in my genes! I've always loved to draw and paint, but never took myself seriously as an artist. Hmmmm, what could I sell on eBay that would be FUN? One night, I decided to put a little painting on eBay for $1 and see what happened. It got bid up to something like $30 and I was hooked; I didn't sleep at all that night, I was so excited. That was over ten years ago, and I still love sharing my online art studio with the world.

D i m e n s i o n s: 10" x 8"

Rachel says:  "Since I was little I've always felt a connection to animals. I'm convinced that animals have a soul, and I try to capture that in my work. When you look into the eyes of an animal, you get a glimpse of their soul. Hopefully that glimpse will bring peace, and a sense of connection to the greater world, both human, animal, and spiritual, that is every where, every day, just waiting to be noticed. I hope my art serves as a reminder of these things, and celebrates the sanctity of such simple but profound truths."

S p e c i f i c a t i o n s: Signed, Limited Edition

Rachel says:  "I don't know what it is about painting cats, but I can't get enough! This painting is of Sadie, my own personal cat. She is very much the diva, and knows when the camera is on. She positions herself in front of it and loves her picture taken. She is very proud to be featured in so many of my paintings. If I'm painting, she gets jealous of the attention I'm paying to the watercolor, and tries to get in front of me, as demonstrated in this video...  https://vimeo.com/45790152 "

Rachel says: "This is a print of my painting of two zebras. Thank you so much to Giovanni at www.flickr.com/photos/giovannimari/ for his wonderful picture, which he took in South Africa (lucky dog). I also have prints and giclees available of this painting."

  1. Thank you so much for featuring me!!!!

  2. I love that black cat! My aunt had one for years, and he was just the coziest little guy ever.

  3. You are so very welcome Rachel! You are SO Talented!

  4. I'm a German Shepherd nut - so that first picture certainly hit me between the eyes! The cat one was equally great, and although I've been lucky enough to see Zebra in the wild, have never got that close!
    Thanks for the chance to see them!

  5. Gorgeous artwork! I love paintings of animals. The one of the tabby cat with the sock monkey in her shop is wonderful! Love it!
    Thanks for introducing this shop to us, Trina!

  6. we had a cat just like that...loved the video. :0)

  7. Awesome artwork from a very talented artist!!!

  8. What beautiful work! I love those zebras :)

  9. Lovely work! I especially love the cat....I had a beautiful black cat for 19 years (although he wasn't too beautiful in the end). Whenever I see a black cat I think of Spot! Thanks for sharing another great artist!


Thank you so much for visiting today! Please leave your comments... I look forward to them, and really enjoy reading them! Have a wonderful day!! :)
