Sharing the Art of Amber Rain Forest


Hello All!  Hope you are enjoying sun wherever you are!  Not so much here in the Northwest, but there is talk that we may see some this weekend!  Yeah!
I wanted to share some art by Amber Rain Forest, who also happens to be my Sister :-)
I have two of her paintings hanging over my bed and I am in love with the colors and sheer JOY that she conveys when she paints!!

Love the dots in this piece and the detailing! (of course I do!)

Yummy flowers!




I think this one should be titled 'Rebirth'






I see water here - an impressionist feel to this one I think. 




And this is a relief carving she finished this spring - Amazing details here too.  She used a dremmel tool for most of the carving and then glued clear glass beeds randomly throughout for a 3-D bubble effect. 
Click for a close up.


Thank you for dropping by and sharing this lovely art with me. 
Hugs and Smiles
