For me, a perfect Sunday morning is browsing Etsy with a cup of coffee in hand. I can't remember what random search brought me to Kathy Panton's shop, but I became transfixed by these delicate, watery paintings.
In the vein of Eric Carle (perhaps more feminine) Panton works in both paint and collage and her subjects are usually from nature - butterflies, elephants, mushrooms, birds, etc. Her prints are very affordable (usually $16) and I'm eying her self-published counting picture book, I Hear Two Birds, as a gift for some upcoming kids' birthdays.
Visit Kathy Panton on Etsy to see them all.
