Affordable Art

Are you looking for affordable art? I feel that art work in your home and work area is essential for capturing the mood, the preferred 'feel' of your room. Art enhances any area and you can afford it!

I have some wonderful finds for you that are very affordable! Some are original works of art and some are prints, but all are affordable. For this article, I've chosen a blue theme. I can see these wonderful pieces in many situations, adding to the ambiance of your special area.

Kate of HeronKate is the artist behind this acrylic painting. This is Spirals and Fish, an original work.

Kate uses one of my favorite color schemes, orange and blue. This is a vortex of fire and water, represented by the colors and the spiral and fish images. This 12 inch x 12 inch original piece is $120.00.

Blue Beach Days is an 8 inch by 8 inch Fine Art Photographic print. This print is only $30.00! I love the compositions of GreenIslandStudios. Her choices for placement always show a good eye for design.

Greenislandstudios gives you prints on premium quality Fine Art Paper, which has a matte finish with a rough texture. Jo will work with you for your individual needs. She will also offer you this picture as a box framed deep edged canvas, mounted (and / or framed) print in a variety of sizes. Her vintage inspired art is truly affordable! You can choose from many pieces at her shop, and she can offer the size, etc. that you need. You will find that most artist are happy to accommodate your needs.

This is from Kauaiartist. Strolling Maha'ulepu is an original watercolor painting. Strolling combines watercolor with pen & ink, a great combination of mediums. It measures 8inches by x 10 inches and is double matted to 11"x14" in an ivory and gold mat.

Marionette takes full advantage of the intensity of watercolor to capture those amazing Kauai colors. This piece is priced at $95.00. She uses only the finest quality art supplies in her watercolor paintings - Arches watercolor paper and Winsor and Newton paints. Those are my favorites for watercolor too! Strolling is priced at $95.00.

Mystery is an original painting by Jordanka.

expressive trees are gorgeous. This blue piece, Dancing Blue Moon Willow, is an original acrylic painting. This piece is priced at $26.00, and measures 7" x 7 1/4". Jordanka works with her collectors for their particular color needs. She will also accommodate any size or design for your decor.

If you're looking for a larger piece, this one by Elizabeth Graf is 22 inches by 28 inches.

Glasswing Butterfly is an original oil painting priced at only $235.00. The many butterflies on Elizabeth's property inspire her, and she will be creating a new series of paintings such as these.

These are just a few example of affordable art. I'll be bringing more to you soon!
