Happily Ever After: Art By Tush Tush



These days I am hooked on Etsy. It so happens that I have periods where I can't stop browsing Etsy and one click leads to the other and before I notice, hours have passed. Can you relate to this? Well, in one of my last browsing sessions I've stumbled upon a fabulous Etsy store called Tush Tush. It is the creative outpost of an Israeli artist who has recently moved to Canada and sells über-cute tiny drawings and paintings, mostly on canvas. Those kind of little art pieces that are ideal as accents for gallery walls. 


You can find a few original paintings made with acrylic paint as well as reasonably priced canvas prints. I am no art historian, but last December I visited the Edward Hopper exhibit in Paris and I must say, these works remind me a bit of the artful play of light and shadows that are distinctive for Hopper's oeuvre. 

My personal favorite is the guitar playing seaman (probably because of my soft spot for stripes and anything nautical). Which one do you like in particular? If you like to see more, click HERE to visit her Etsy shop. Happy Friday, friends!

  1. What a great find! I love her style, it's beautiful! I'm the same way, I start browsing and then by the time I realize how long it's been I have a cup of cold tea and an hour or more has passed.

    1. I love this style cause it is like a cool blend of American realism (reminds me a bit of Hopper's work) and naïve art with simple forms and slight imperfections. Just like real life;-)

    2. Thanks. I don't know a lot about art to be honest and wouldn't have paid much attention to the above. But some nice pieces... I especially like the man & woman in glasses. :-)

  7. I wish I could hire a stylist for only finding good art for me. I'm somehow really bad at. :/
    Oh and I know the problem, when browsing etsy. There should be a function on the computer " close etsy after 1h and DO NOT allowed to open again today" :)

  8. Oh yes, I can relate to that little etsy addiction of yours. Such a great way to find little gems from all over the world that you wouldn't have found out about otherwise.
    my favourite painting is the women's portrait, love the way she is looking directly at the viewer, so self confident and a little misterious.

  10. This article is pure joy!! Love it! But I must say (as I am an art historian): these pic's are related to an older period in art history as hopper - I see a lot of Manet, even Monet in his finest pics (early impressionists)

    But really thank you for showing us these beautfull pices of art!
