Yep, I've been at it again. This time painting another American Robin. I can't help it, I like Robins. These red-breasted birds signify Spring and Summer to me.
And for some reason, this season I've seen a lot of these pretty birds raising their young. So without further ado...I bring you "Big Red."
This acrylic painting on wood block measures 4.75 inches by 6 inches by 1 inch (about the size of a cd case) and is a perfect size to hang on the wall or display on your table top (as shown here).
This piece is now available to purchase online (click here) or visit http://www.racheldickson.com to view more paintings like this one.
Onward and upward for the arts!

When one says, "Grand Rapids", everyone automatically assumes Michigan. And yet, there is a best kept secret here (well, sort of). There is a Grand Rapids, Ohio.
This town has recently become one of my favorites to peruse. Not only is there a very nice walk along the Maumee River (just so happens that this quaint little gem of a town borders the south side of the Maumee river), but also there are bunches of very fun shops and some fab galleries to peruse too!
The next show being featured at Angelwood is called "Fabulous Fibers 2013" which is the 6th annual fiber show hosted by Angelwood. Fiber works from Ohio artists as well as many other States will be on display and for sale from June 20-July 21 with the opening reception corresponding with downtown Grand Rapids' "Girls Night Out" Thursday, June 20 from 6p-8p.
In the mean time, go, be, DO!
