I’d like to talk about ART…….

I adore this piece by Samantha Hahn. I love her use of color…..Can a color be soft and bold? I love  that it appears a bit aged and yet it’s modern.

I just recently began collecting art myself. Real ART….original art. I started small….literally. I began hunting specifically for original art in tiny sizes. Pieces this size fit in my budget and I also think there is a certain something about such a tiny piece…so thoughtfully composed. It is proof that not all things must be grand to be great.

Art can take decor up a notch or ten. It lends sophistication and sometimes even humor to the mix. There is nothing like the tension of a modern piece of art placed in a traditional setting.

I have included some more of my favorite pieces, some splashy, some serious and some silly. Next time you  are tempted to hang something on a wall that a bazilliontrillion other people have….think  original.

julian schnabelThis painting by Julian Schnabel makes me happy…….


….and who doesn’t love a floral still life? This one is by Lana Williams available at UGallery.com, an excellent resource for original art online.


and this one by Kaylie Abela


I love this example of how to hang a small collection of art…


….And this space by Miles Redd….check out the super modern piece to the left….
