I came across this very talented young woman, Julie Beck, on Twitter. Her blog title "Paintings in Progress" is very apt.
Julie's "Awake" painting was chosen for one of the months for the Aquent 2010 Calendar!

Julie also has an Etsy shop where she sells some of her pieces. These are just two of the pieces she is selling.
I think you will enjoy looking through, not only Julie's blog, but her Etsy shop as well.
