Etsy Bits of Art.
If you don't yet know about Etsy, it's this wonderful online art gallery of sorts, supporting independent artists of every medium, selling their handmade goods online. There is some amazingly talented artists here and I'm always discovering something new. I'm also always surprised at how inexpensive their work is and have made a lot of great purchases at Etsy. It's one of my favorite resources for finding beautiful art and fun accessories at great prices. Here's just a few of my favorite artists.
Creative Thursday's print of original acrylic painting, Love Birds in Orange Hats. I love the titles of these prints, too.
UK based Askey creates limited edition prints of her original digital illustrations, and prints them on beautiful linen paper. I adore this print called I Like Your Shoes.
Frau Mathilda Art from Vienna, Austria's print of original acrylic painting Doglove. I can so relate.
This piece by Fifi Lapin is entitled no.57 Fifi Wears Alexander McQueen. How great is that?
I've long been a fan of The Black Apple prints. This sweet one's called Tea Time Print, but check out her other work, there's something kind of haunting about it, and I really love it.
One girl in Melbourne, Australia creates these lovely cards from vintage dictionary illustrations, printed on hand dyed fabric and sewn on cream card stock with contrasting cotton thread. So sweet.
Etsy is full of wonderful art. And although you should never buy art just because you can afford it, this site helps you afford what you love.
