I’m on the hunt for some art pieces for my house. While I was in Barcelona I bought the loveliest print from a great art store I found. It was just too big to fit in my suitcase so I carried it around for the rest of my trip. Its was large and unyielding, and a HUGE pain to try and fit on as carry on every time we got on a train or flight, but I loved it so much it was totally worth the effort. I would constantly take it out of its plastic bag and tell my mum how fantastic I thought it was.
Unfortunately, it was one of the things that got destroyed in the fire whilst in transit so its no longer with me. Regardless, the whole experience wetted my appetite and inspired me to finally start that art collection I’ve so often dreamed about.
A couple of months ago I bought this clever print by Dean Trippe that combines two of my favourite things: Batman and Dr Who :) heehee! He also has done a second ‘comic cover’ featuring Superman, which I think could make a nice pair….
More recently I’ve been looking a some more ‘artsy’ prints, like the Jacqui Oakley Barn Owls
print I posted
about not long ago.
I spotted this lovely owl on Society 6
and immediately needed it as well. I know, I know. I always tend to gravitate to Owl related things, but I absolutely adore the colours in this print.
Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess posted about Charmaine Olivia‘s ‘Aiyana‘ print not too long ago, which I almost bought myself… but I then I fell in love with ‘Obidian’ (below). That hair is just so amazing in profile, I just must to have her!
I’m sure everyone has seen Julia Potts gorgeous artworks by now (if not, check out her etsy
shop or her blog
!) I have been after these two prints for a while now, but haven’t been able to get them yet as I couldn’t possibly just buy one and not the other!
Last but not least, I’ll have to save my pennies for one of these custom couple portraits done by tuesdaymourning
! They are oh so simple and stylish, and so, so sweet!
I love that there we have access to so many amazing artists all over the world. The internet really is a wonderful thing :)
