If you are looking for REAL artwork to decorate your humble abode or extravagant one. You won’t find it at Walmart, the Dollar Stores or Macy’s. Believe it or not… I’m going to tell you to start shopping at ‘thrifts’ for it. You can tastefully decorate using REAL canvases. The selection of local artists on their shelves and walls and in their bins, is simply amazing. And it can be much more affordable than some of the fake stuff out there. Watercolors, oils, acrylics, pen & inks are easily found. Of course… so are posters and decorator stuff, too, if that is what you prefer. I found an amazing
Caribbean oil painting of a village in
a rainstorm that I nagged for only $8.00. It easily could have been priced for
$200 elsewhere. It was perfect for our wall and folks are none the wiser… it
came from a thrift shop, instead of a juried art show or island getaway.
Real gems are out there if you look. But you have to be willing to put in the time. The scenes and locations in each picture will melt your heart. I guarantee it. And… I’m sure, you’ll find one that speaks to you and is just waiting to accompany you home. So keep your eyes open to the possibilities of REAL art, that is original. It’s more affordable than you think.
