When it comes to art, I like COLOR.  I want the art on my walls to add color and mood and mystery to my life.  Or happiness and cheerfulness.  Something that makes me smile every time I see it.  Or something that stops me in my tracks and causes me to wonder.

I don't know if my art causes anyone to get lost in their thoughts but I'm certain it adds a bright spot of color and cheer.  Sometimes that's all you really need.  Not everything has to have meaning and depth.  Art for art's sake.  No function.  Just art.  I'm a fan of that.

Here's some of my latest work.  Agates.  Part real, part imagined.  And full of color.  If you are interested in purchasing a piece, shoot me an email to danagrandbois at yahoo dot com.  Otherwise they will be headed to my Etsy shop in the next few days.

'Owly' (7 x 10)


  1. very pretty, D. Art for Art's sake. hmmm...makes me think. I am watching the snow falling outside the living room window thinking about that. I wish I could just let go of decorating for a purpose and just enjoy art for the sake of art. I enjoy looking at it but committing art to be on my walls at home is terrifying. silly, huh? The owly piece is spectacular by the way.

    1. putting art on your walls should not be terrifying. it should be a joy. let go, dear. :)

  2. I love them all - creating art is supposed to get your creative juices flowing. The more you 'play' with it the more creative you become and then suddenly before you know it you have a masterpiece in front of you or perhaps on your wall!!! :)
