Endless Summer with Kara Rane on #Etsy {#Giveaway}

This post is part of Endless Summer at Artsy Chaos , happening only during September! "Hope Full"  9" x 12" For some, summer goes much further and deeper than just a season.  Summer is a theme, a feeling or mantra by which one lives their life to the fullest and brightest.  Since most of us live in a world where the seasons change and the world around us bends and wanes with the weather, there is just one way to "see" summer all year round and that is through art. "El Fortin" 9" x 12" "Luke"  12" x 9" Let me introduce you to Kara Rane.  Kara has created a collection of art which begs you to sit down and enjoy its vibrant colors and playful summer tickle.  In her words, "discover your paradise".  Kara's Made in Vieques art collection is a Limited Edition Collection of Fine Art Giclee Prints. Only 20 reproductions are created for each image selected and each is signed and numbered by the artist.
