Sadly Harmless Etsy Store has lovely paintings and prints in it:)
Sally Harness lives in Indiana. I love her art so much. This polar bear is one of my favorites.
I wanted to share her artist statement with you~
"My work attempts to fuse images reminiscent of children’s books with the struggles of adjusting to adulthood. My characters deal with issues of self consciousness, depression, solitude, and longing. I attempt to make images relatable in content and also aesthetically pleasing. There is almost always some kind of ailment that afflicts my characters. I also incorporate elements of humor in all of my work through the use of anthropomorphism as well as cynicism. My art has become a visual diary of what happens in my world and how those things affect me. I use these characters as a vehicle to tell my own story."
Thank-you so much for donating!
- Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
