This is one of the first pieces I bought. I think it may have been $15. Clearly, it was painted by an amateur artist. I like the colors. I also liked the simple wooden frame.
I passed this painting a few times before I finally bought it. It was a little more expensive than the first one, but I really like the houses and the way the background is blurry.
This is a more recent purchase. It is embroidery. It was in a flimsy frame with a yellow mat. It was fairly inexpensive and I really like the colors, especially the blue. About a month ago I finally picked up a new frame, and it's looking much better!
I like these botanical prints. I've always thought of doing something with the frames, but I never got around to it. What about painting them gold? What do you think?
Finally, here is my latest purchase. I've been on the lookout for a few vintage sketches and haven't been able to fine anything I liked, so I turned to Etsy. I picked up this sophisticated lady. I've been calling her Mabel. I haven't had the chance to get it matted and framed yet. I'm thinking an off-white mat and a simple black frame.
What kinds of art do you have in your home? Next week I'll be sharing some of my DIY art. I hope you'll stop by.
