The Art of Dana Ellyn

"She's a looker. Look out."

This drawing was purchased years ago at an outdoor arts festival in D.C. The girl's eyes are piercing an uncomfortable. There is a strangeness to some of  Dana Ellyn's work that simultaneously makes you uncomfortable and crave more. One of our favorites is the "Matador and his Bull(dog)" — whimsical and touching. 

Her 31 Days in July project is great -- she creates a painting based on the front page of the newspaper each day.

The catalog card is for a book, "Painting with Light."
