My vintage portrait captures an older farming couple in the historic Skagit Valley, Washington. Shown are John and Vera Hedlund, -- he was 89 and she, 83 at the time this portrait was taken over 20 years ago in 1980. The couple is representative of the valley's pioneer heritage... and the last of a then living heritage. They bought their farm during the Depression and worked it until 1976 when they retired. Part of a documentary project concerning the folk and history of the inhabitants of the Skagit Valley. Published in Seattle Sunday magazine - Featured recently by the non-profit

Hi, I'm a photographer and artist selling my fine art prints at

My work is sold as Fine Art Giclee (inkjet) prints or fade resistant Fuji Crystal Archive (photographic) prints.

Clyde is known internationally for his historic photographs of Robert F. Kennedy. His RFK images are featured in Rory Kennedy's documentary film, "ETHEL" which debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights has recently acquired key images from Clyde's RFK portfolios for their collection. Historic photos of author Ken Kesey, William Burroughs and actor Bill Murray are featured in Mark Christensen's book Acid Christ. Clyde's portrait of actor/director Warren Beatty is the cover photo for Peter Biskind's, Star. Several vintage documentary images appear in a new NFL films project, entitled, "Fearsome Foursome" as well as Dan Forrer's upcoming HBO documentary film centering on the birth of Hip Hop music. The Seattle Museum of History and Science now features his vintage Seattle skyline panoramas. His regional portraits of surviving pioneer families (and characters) appear in several new books, periodicals and webzines, including Ken Bilderback's, Creek with No Name, a new soft cover about the history of Cherry Grove, Oregon.

Clyde is the grandson of Clyde Leon Keller, (1872-1962) an important Oregon-based Plein-Air Impressionist Painter. His portfolios can be viewed at

September 20, 2014-- Featured in Elizabeth Graf's new treasury, entitled, And Seasonal Delights Emerge!

Do visit Elizabeth's shop to view her beautiful fine art paintings. She is the curator of this wonderful treasury.

Following the path to perpetual fine art!
I started my shop on Etsy back in 2008, and it took 7 months for my first sale. But during those 7 months I did a lot of networking and got to know many fellow Etsians (and of course how to operate within Etsy). I, like so many others, am madly "in love" with the whole Etsy experience -- it changed my life!

I live in a beautiful, tropical environment and spend lots of time at home, in my studio. Tranquil, peaceful, surrounded by nature and plants and huge trees -- what a wonderful inspiration for an artist!

The best part is being able to work from my house -- I feel so "rooted" here. I work on painting after painting after painting and look out my windows at all the natural beauty. The colors in the landscape influence me, especially the bright orange-reds of the pagoda flowers and the yellow, greens and white.

I am on a never-ending journey and I know that I will produce another painting that will inspire others. And the support I get from the Etsy community is over-whelming -- I am also happy to help others with suggestions and of course, by including many who support me in my constant treasuries. Creating treasuries is for me, almost as much fun as painting!!

My art career in its totality has been successful enough for quiet little me -- I have shown in the right galleries at the right times and my work is in private collections in many countries. But the place I really am happy to be is right here, on Etsy. Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back to see my future work!!

November 2, 2012-- Appearing in Elizabeth Graf's fine treasury entitled, "Jolly and Spectacular Gifts!"

Curated by Elizabeth graf from Elizabeth Graf Fine Art where you will find her colorful and exquisite "story telling" paintings!

Artist Statement:

I have a HUGE body of work which not only includes paintings, but drawings and photographs. I plan in the future to present prints for sale besides my paintings. I have shown in galleries and art shows but I think I have found my perfect "niche" in Etsy -- selling online allows me the maximum amount of time to tend to my artwork and artist's psyche!

"MY PAINTINGS TELL STORIES" - My GREATEST inspiration in my childhood were the illustrations by John R. Neill for The Wizard of Oz series of books. The black and white drawings danced, flowed, moved out of the page -- so powerful! Other inspirations include "everything tropical", marine life, Chinese/Asian, flowers/plants (scenes from my property) and the look of French Provence linens and their colors -- well, let's just say: EVERYTHING!

Curated by Katrin from haubenmeise:

Artisan Statement:

My name is Katrin. I have been crafting with a variety of materials since I was about 5 years old. My Grandma tought me how to crochet. At that time I crocheted thousands of chain stitches and stretched them all over my grandparents house. At 13 my Mum bought me my first sewing machine.
I worked as an art assistant for about 15 years and I have a degree for fashion and design. During my work as a key account manager for an advertising agency I never stopped creating fashion, accessoires, jewellery etc.

October 3, 2011-- Newly featured in the, Beyond Indigenous, treasury:

Curated by Holly Anderson of Avantageaux Art:

Artist Statement:

Painting and experimenting with color has lifted my mood, eased my pain and loss more than any perscription drug ever could.

Since 2005 ive devoted countess hours to studying art & alternative healing. Working through my pain and mobility challenges the last few years i I created a concept to survive ..... Avantageux Art

( ADVANTAGEOUS ) Art for your Health !!
a creative way to surround yourself with healing colors and images done in Acrylic or Oil Paint.

I am a walking testimony that proves our surroundings have a lot to do with how we feel, function and heal as we are emotions and emotions are us. I share with you here all original works of art that promote healing, inspiration, and life changing effects.

My current works of art are inspired from within and by what i see in nature. Each piece is truly an escape as i love to experiment with texture, color and really get my hands dirty (and everything else)! I never know what the finished product is going to look like, i don't have expectations when i start a piece. I do share with my students that what they think is a "mistake" or a "muck up" will end up magically being their best work of art or most praised by others.

Curated by Anna of noblegnome:


Hello there, my name is Anna. I'm so happy you have found my little shop!

I am originally from Sweden but after many years of traveling and living in many different countries, I now simply consider myself a citizen of the earth I walk on. The coast and the mountains of Maine is where my heart resides these days.

So many things inspire me when I create my jewelry but tales of old and the rugged beauty of untouched nature are my greatest influences. I find beauty in the raw and the old, like hammer cut stones, vintage beads, rich patinas developed over time or created by artisan metal workers. My jewelry tends to be primarily rustic looking but a few playful fun pieces always find their way in too.

Aside from making jewelry, I have been drawing and painting since the day I was born and hope to soon again be able to fill my other shop (which is now depressingly empty) with original oil paintings
