Artist David Ryden

I apologize for being MIA for a week or so but I was in Texas for my sister's baby shower:

and in Charleston for a crazy wedding:

which we turned into a family vacation on Sullivan's Island celebrating Patton's first birthday:

While walking around Charleston I stopped into a few of my favorite stores Sugar Snap Pea, SOMA and Michael Mitchell.  Michael Mitchell is an art gallery which always seems to have affordable and emerging artists.  When I walked in I immediately fell in love with this Elephant by David Ryden.

Sized at 24" x 18" it is the perfect size for a child's room. The $1100 price tag is a little steep but once you consider it a true piece of artwork and investment piece which your little one will have forever it is a little easier to stomach.

The polar bear below (in the middle) was another favorite and had such wonderful soft colors.  I could definitely use that one in Patton's room.

Farewell Charleston! Until next time!


  1. I just love your work and especially love the one with the rear end view of the elephant. Unfortunately I sooo appreciate your work but out of my price range. Will you ever do prints?
