Super-great artist to deal with! Shipped quickly and my piece arrived in perfect condition. "Pears in Brown Paper" is even more beautiful in person. A new favorite. Thank you, Cat!


A Small Shop with a Big Logo

I created the logo because I was born in the Year of the Dragon (never mind which one), and dragons are agents of change and creativity. That couldn't be a more perfect symbol of what art is about, of what sharing art and art-making can do for someone's life.

My small studio doesn't limit the size of the ideas, or the quality of execution of my work. There is room here for everything I need. To create a studio is just to bring awareness to what you have probably been doing for years, if not most of your life, plus adding shelving.

Each of us is given something magnificent inside with which to make our contribution. I call it creative fire. If some days your walls seem too close, or the clutter inside your head is too dense, ready your Dragon Breath and blow it away. In my studio, I make room for the magnificent every day. In my Etsy shop, I share all of that with you.

Welcome to Laughing Dragon Studio!
I paint watermedia paintings of nature and natural events to capture elegant moments in lush compositions, and share those moments with you. The prints I sell here are made to my specifications, so you see what I painted in the original work.

I like to do more than just sell prints, though. If you have questions about a technique, the selection of a subject, how to frame, anything I can help you with, please send me a message at halcat42 [!at]

See You in the Studio!

If you are buying from outside the United States: Canadian and other non-US buyers may be charged additional fees at customs, based on your country's customs and duties policies.
I ship priority grade with FedEx, UPS, or USPS, depending on which is fastest and least expensive for your area. If you prefer a specific carrier, please let me know at the time of purchase. Japanese customers, be sure to provide your phone number so I can add it to the customs form. Shipping outside the US will be by FedEx unless otherwise requested, because they provide tracking around the world.

All packages are insured for the USD value of the contents. All packages have a tracking number. Customs requirements will be met.

The average time to ship after I receive your order is 1 to 3 days. If there should be delays for any reason, I will notify you.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you receive the print and for whatever reason do not want it, I will accept the return and repay the cost of the print. Return shipping and insurance costs will be paid by you. Your refund will be made as soon as I receive the print.

Goods damaged in transit to you will be replaced at my cost. You will not have to return the damaged print if you can send me a clean image of the damage via email.

With shipment tracking, the possibility of a lost print is low, but every now and then a package will fail to arrive. Once the shipper has declared the package to be lost, I will send you a replacement with no further costs to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Fine art prints, called giclees, are art. They require simple but respectful handling to give you a lifetime of enjoyment. I unconditionally guarantee the quality and longevity of all of the materials that make up your purchase, if handled according to the directions sent with each print.
