Before receiving my artwork, I was already really anxious and excited. This was being painted for me, and sent from Moscow, Russia! That, in itself, is pretty dang cool. When I received my painting, it was much more than I anticipated. It was packaged really well – which was a good thing, because it was raining here in Dallas the day the postman delivered it, and the outside was wet. My artist was smart in bubble-wrapping the little piece of art to protect it!
Once I opened it, there was a hand-written note addressed to me on it. I thought this was incredibly personal and made me feel really special! The artist, Lyubov Kuptsova, took the time to not only paint this image for me, but to write me a note. That, to me, already had me praising ArtFinder.
And then, I lifted the note to find my painting.
This absolutely majestic, vibrant and simply stunning painting immediately put a smile on my face. I was (and still am) blown away by the beauty of it! It’s a one of a kind piece, created with watercolor on paper. It’s just 8.27″ x 5.91″, but it doesn’t need to be bigger to captivate you.
Seeing it online when I was shopping on ArtFinder, I was drawn to it. Seeing it in person, I now know why. The brush strokes are intentional but whimsical, which reminds me of my own personality. It really is amazing and like the personal note from the artist said, it makes me happy and gives me great emotions! Check it out online, and see the other artwork from this artist, HERE.
Shopping on Artfinder was really a fun experience. They have thousands of amazing pieces – from watercolors to acrylic and abstracts to scenery. I don’t know much about art, to be honest. But, the second I saw my piece, “Cat,” I knew I wanted it because of the liveliness of it and the amazing colors. I could have spent hours on Artfinder, though, and think I’ll definitely be back to get more! The prices are also really nice – my painting was under $50 shipped, straight from Russia. That’s a deal in my book!
