Focus On... Studio Tuesday And A Giveaway!

{giveaway closed}

Studio Tuesday came to my attention a few months ago when I was looking for artwork for a friend's nursery. I ended up making something myself, but I fell in love with David's amazing whales. His work is so versatile; it would be at home in a nursery, a bathroom, a hallway or a dining room.  

Tell me some basic info about yourself. My name is David Scheirer. I’m 27. I work for my friend’s landscaping company. I have a degree in painting. I like Turner Classic Movies. I play soccer. My favorite weather is foggy. I collect shark teeth. And I like bird watching.


What kind of mediums do you use and why? I mostly paint with watercolors. I like the process of layering colors and tones. You can produce a lot of different effects like that. I recently have also making linoleum cuts – I’ve always liked the idea of block prints.


What made you decide to sell on etsy? It was the first online venue I heard of that catered to artists and crafters. It has great traffic, low start up costs, is reputable, and has a lot of talented people in its community.


Where do you get your inspiration? Nature is a big influence. I love hunting for fossils, bird watching, and exploring outdoors. All of this plays a big part of inspiring and providing subject matter for my artwork. I’m also inspired by American realist painters like Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, and Andrew Wyeth.


What is your favorite music to craft by? I listen to a lot of different things… but mostly rock and roll type stuff I guess. I never tire of Neil Young and Tom Petty.


When it's cold outside... I drink hot cocoa


When I need a boost... I drink a coke… or take a nap.

{porthole and whale - my fave}

I wish I was... fluent in many languages.


If I could give one gift to everyone I know, it would be... one of my paintings

{fox}

If I could have coffee with anyone, it would be... Alfred Hitchcock. I bet he has some good stories. And listening to him is sort of mesmerizing.


If you were an animal, what would you be? An otter.


What's your favorite piece of your own? At the moment I like a small watercolor I did of moon shells.


What are your favorite blogs/websites right now?

David also offers custom pet portraits - something I am definitely thinking would be amazing! I would love a painting of Oliver in his Oliver-y-ness, captured forever!



David has graciously offered one lucky winner their choice of any 5" x 7" whale print from his shop!
