Affordable Art for Your Walls

I've found some beautiful art selections for you from the Design Style Guide! There are so many affordable items on this site for home decor. Here are some that you don't want to miss!

Museum Quality Pears

Carol Schiff Studio from Melbourne Florida brings you this 14 inch x18 inch original oil painting. Carol paints this piece in an impressionistic style with juicy paint and many layers of glazing. The painting depicts a bowl of pears in a dark and romantic atmosphere. This painting is available for $439.95.

Teapot and Chopsticks

Carol Schiff Studio

Here is a smaller piece from Carol, this one is a 10" x 8" original oil painting on canvas panel. In this piece she depicts an oriental style teapot, chopsticks, and a tangerine. Her impressionistic style brings juicy, thick paint, and bold brushwork. Teapot and Chopsticks is available for $245.00.

Schiff has been painting in oil and pastel for over 20 years. She seeks to give opportunity to everyone to have original, one of a kind, affordable art in their home or office. She is happy to do commission work for you in your size, color, or design. Although she paints all subjects including portraits, her specialty is landscape, seascapes, and still life.

Pink Peony

Laurie Balla

Laurie, an artist from Indiana, finds her inspiration in nature. She grew up surrounded by cornstalks, woods and wildflowers, and embraced that rich, rural setting. Feeling at home in that environment spawned a natural fondness for places like Botanical Gardens and State Parks. Watercolor is her medium of choice because of its infinite possibilities.

The peony is not only Indiana’s state flower, but has always been one of her favorites. This popular giclee floral will brighten up any space in your home. This beautiful limited edition (edition limited to 100), hand signed and numbered giclee is printed on 8.5 x 11 Canson Watercolor Digital Fine Art Paper. The ink used is by HP and is made to last 100 years. It comes ready to frame with a small white border, available for $25.00.

Lotsa Hosta II

Anyone who has hosta has lots of it! This is another of Laurie's giclee prints. The emerging hosta have an abstract feel, yet these are painted in a realistic manner. It is a piece that will give you the energy of early springtime all year long. This beautiful limited edition (edition limited to 100), hand signed and numbered giclee is printed on 8.5 x 11 Canson Watercolor Digital Fine Art paper, available for $25.00.

Twins-Original Photography Print of Morning Glory

YankeeGirl has some beautiful watercolors, as well as this delightful photograph. This photography print is of two blue Morning Glory flowers overlapping. This composition would look wonderful in a large print. You can purchase this piece in a 5" by 7," an 8" by 10" or larger. Prints from YankeeGirl are all matted for delivery. This piece in a 5" x 7" is available for only $15.00.

YankeeGirl is a watercolor artist living near the Jersey Shore. Besides absolutely loving creating art, she also enjoys gardening, decorating, entertaining the beach and all animals.

Plumeria the Beautiful

Elizabeth Graf Fine Art

Elizabeth Graf brings you this oil painting, a 16 x 20 inch gallery wrapped work with dark green painted on the sides. Her love for Hawaiian leis and all things tropical inspired this piece. Her summer birthday party was always a "Hawaiian Luau." There was a mimosa tree in her New York backyard that bloomed during the summer. Party goers always sat under mimosa in muumuus with leis! This is the first in a series of plumeria that Elizabeth has completed. It is available for $115.00.

A life long artist, Elizabeth is now living in Florida. She has a large body of work with paintings in private collections in New York and Florida.

I hope you've enjoyed this month's look at affordable art for your walls!

Great selection. Wall paintings are tricky, but I think these are very great decor that can compliment a lot of designs.

It is interesting how flowers are rendered differently by artists from different cultures.

I like the Chinese' interpretation of the subject.. contemporary artist Wu Minrong in particular, loves pairing flowers with birds.
