Bucks County Painter Lisa M. Nelson and Corvid Love

Stratoz and I were at the Bucks Guild ArtsFest ’15 and we both were taken by Lisa M. Nelson‘s miniature oil painting of a fine corvid.  I was drawn to the orange and blue-black colors, and Stratoz has a thing for birds, so we took it home.  It was great to finally meet Lisa, since we had known each other’s work through Team Hip on Etsy(Handmade in PA), and I had often put her brilliantly colored paintings in Treasuries of Etsy items.  She is a daily painter with a love of animals, and welcomes lovers of shiny, pretty things.  It made sense to her that I responded to the shine and texture of her painting, since my mosaics have the same elements.  I do think I was a magpie in a former life.

Bonus behind the scenes slide show I took of Stratoz setting up the ArtsFest booth.  It’s like building a nest.
