OODLES OF DOODLES Review/Giveaway

Posted by mom2boys at 2:28 PM


I recently came across this great Etsy shop called ODDLES OF DOODLES paintings & prints.
The shop owner Tracy is so very talented. She focuses on children's paintings and has just added
animal portraits. Tracy sent me two paintings to review, one a Jungle animals and the other a dog portrait.The Jungle animals print looks great in my son's room.And the dog portrait looks so realistic. I am so impressed with her work!
She puts so much care in to the details of her paintings.
It's really something you have to see for yourself. Here are a few of her paintings.






I asked Tracy some questions about herself and shop.Here's what she had to say...

What inspires your work?
1. I have always painted, mostly watercolor paintings of landscapes and wildlife and sold them in galleries. I was also an art teacher for eight years. After having kids I stopped teaching to stay at home with them, but soon quickly realized how much I missed my students creativity. I needed a change, and was inspired to create a line of children prints after the birth of my third daughter. Painting for children is so uplifting and fun! I love the freedom of painting something whimsical and colorful and not having to worry about it looking realistic.

When did you get your shop started?
2. I started to sell my prints on Etsy last fall. Before that I had been selling my prints on Ebay for about a year. I love it! I plan on creating many more prints and selling them for a very long time!

3. I chose the name of my store for a very specific reason. I new I would want to paint a variety of subject matter and wanted everything I painted to belong in my store. That's why I call my store, Oodles of Doodles Paintings & Prints. Right now I'm taking a break from painting for children and currently working on a new series of paintings - dog and cat portraits. In the comming weeks I will put up all my new prints. Once I get these paintings out of my system I will be back to painting for children!

I love the 8x10 FLOWERS WITH BEE PRINT. There are three but I mean the last one with the green background. It's perfect for my little girl's room.
