Kelly Houle, as most of you know, is the artist and calligrapher who’s doing the Illuminated Origin of Species project, along with several other endeavors (she’s going to illustrate our upcoming children’s book on Mr. Das and his fifty cats). I noticed on Facebook that she has a new painting for sale at a ridiculously low starting price on eBay, and is also offering some of her other biology-related work.
She has not told me about this or asked me to publicize her work; I just noticed it and thought that readers might like to make a purchase or two.
Blueberry, a small 2″ X 2″ oil painting on masonite:
Blackberry, oil on canvas, 2.5″ X 3.5″
Ranier cherry, oil on canvas, 2.5″ X 3.5″:
There are also lovely beetle prints and her gold-embossed Darwin “tree of life” greeting cards, which are my go-to cards for sending to biologists and science lovers. You can see them all on Kelly’s “booksilluminated” eBay page.
