I love my beautiful "A Breath of Fresh Air" tote bag by Ellen Watkins! The image is so inspiring, uplifting and empowering, and the size is absolutely perfect. I love that the handles are long and I can easily grab the bag and swing it over my shoulder (I hate bags w/ handles that are short and make it uncomfortable to carry over my shoulder). This bag is particularly important to me because of how it makes me feel. I'm one of the co-leaders of a women's group and I have to carry a lot of materials to my meetings that are emotionally heavy due to the nature of our meetings. I wanted a bag for the materials that made me feel strong, powerful and whole. This bag does exactly that. And I love supporting Ellen who is a local artist and visionary! I love her work and I absolutely love this bag. It's perfect for anyone who wants a large tote bag that makes them feel beautiful and inspired!

Artist's Description

This painting is inspired by the Nightwish song of the same name, from their Imaginaerum album. Many thanks to German model La Esmeralda for allowing me to make use of her fabulous original source material. I've adapted the original photo of her in mermaid garb by creating a sunset backdrop over the sea, as well as some modifications on her outfit to naturalise the mermaid look. This painting took a long time - there was a wealth of detail to work into the piece, and even now I can see plenty of detail still to be played with! But one has to call a halt at some point... Came first in the FAA contest "Ladies of the Deep" July 2015 Came second in the FAA contest "your Highest views on FAA paintings" Jan 2016 Acrylic on block canvas, 16" x 20", April 2012

About Andy Lloyd

Andy Lloyd

I've been painting for about 20 years, and am self-taught. I mostly make use of acrylics as a medium, painting on canvas board, or on box canvases. Sometimes I work with watercolours. I specialise in fine art portraits, but also paint landscapes and wildlife scenes. My speciality is creating a shallow depth of field effect on canvas. This creates depth to the painting by varying the degree of focus throughout the painting. This technique works well for portraits, and certain types of still-life. I also enjoy working with quite strong colours, which is ideal with acrylic as a medium. My portraits often feature models from around the world, who kindly give me permission to create elegant paintings based upon images from their...
