Another fabulous find!

I just found some artwork that I love! I don't own any of her work...yet!

I was just surfing around on a Saturday morning drinking my morning coffee and I found some of her work for sale here...

Rhonda Kullberg Artwork...20th Century Glass, Pottery, Collectibles

After looking over her items I thought I'd try to find her website, but I didn't have any luck. I found lots of sites that sell her work, but not a site that is exclusively hers. I'm thinking that perhaps her artwork is licensed and she sells it in a variety of stores and on a number of websites.

No matter what, I'll find something to buy...her work is just too good to pass up! I'm fascinated by her whimsical style and the colors she uses are fabulous!

Years ago I collected different sayings and kept them in a little notebook. I'd hear or read something that struck a chord in my soul and I'd write it in there. But as my life moved on and changed I must have thrown that little notebook away. I have no idea where it ended up.

Then when I first started selling my work on the Internet I would take part in small auctions--not Ebay--and I sold a number of items that had little sayings on them along with my style of artwork. Maybe that's why Rhonda Kullberg's artwork resonates with me...her art reminds me of some of my early work. Seeing her art makes me wish I could find some time to try my hand at this style again... I loved creating it, but my websites grew and I got so busy that it took me away from painting this way.

Here are pictures of a few my early selling pieces...

I sold lots of plaques that either had a saying about 'Home' or simply a house design...




I found this pig step stool at a flea market. It was plain wood and unpainted. I got the idea to paint 'This Little Piggy...' on it and took it from there. I always liked this item...



And here's another saying by Ralph Waldo Emerson that I liked...I painted and sold many plaques with this saying and the bee hive design...



And one more...I love this saying by Mother Teresa...



Okay...enough about me...I hope you enjoy Rhonda Kullberg's work...I think it's fantastic!

I'll be back soon with more...

i really love your work! It's so whimsical and reminiscent of Rhonda's work! When i first discovered Rhonda's plaques i gasped because she was using the same inspirational words that i have used......and her whimsical style reminded me of some of my work! Funny....i was searching for Rhonda's website and came across yours!

Love, violette

An interesting tidbit about Rhonda Kullberg. She has signed on with Samaco Trading which means China replicates her originals so she can keep up with the demand. On one hand I understand this but on the other I was disappointed to find out that not every piece of work I see of hers is truly "authentic". However, I've not been in her position before so try not to judge. I agree, she does have a great talent and I guess having her pieces made in China confirms that.

ps) I like your "little pig" step stool!
