...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Emily who wants to use the featured painting below in her mom’s bedroom.

Our walls are bare. Naked. Empty. Boring. Eventually, I’ll get around to hanging stuff. I already have big plans {if only in my head} for a wall display near the front door to create an entryway of sorts. Until then, I’ll continue unpacking in between organizing, re-organizing and looking after the kids. I’m about halfway through the boxes in the garage. Ugh.

For those of you in a better place domestically, Tenth Floor Decor is graciously sponsoring this week’s giveaway. The founder of Tenth Floor Decor, Ross, created the small business after visiting an art gallery in Soho where he found pieces that he loved but could not afford. Tenth Floor Decor offers original, high quality oil paintings at a price point that’s more feasible to the everyday homeowner. See a few of my favorites here.

Are your bare walls crying for some art? Namely, a FREE original oil painting? See details on how to win one below.

PRIZE: any Tenth Floor Decor painting of your choice {retail value of $90-$300}

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a shipping address {no P.O. boxes please} within the U.S to enter. One entry per email address.

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “I HEART ART!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Thursday, June 21st at 9:00 p.m. EST. One random winner will be announced Friday, June 22nd.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Share your favorite artist and why you are drawn to his/her work. I’ll go first. Ever since her studio tour was featured on Apartment Therapy, I can’t get Robin Luciano Beaty out of my mind. Her encaustic paintings feel like living, breathing, moving pieces of art. And her DIY’d artist barn isn’t too shabby either.

Hmm, I feel like I have a new favorite Etsy artist each week. :) For “older” art, I have been in love with van Gogh ever since I visited the van Gogh museum in Amsterdam 10 years ago.

My favorite artist is Katharine Montstream. She paints watercolors, oils and even charcoal drawings. I love the vibrant colors, how she captures nature, and how she can make me feel like I am there. Done of her winter paintings make me feel like I can hear and smell the snow. She lives in Vermont and is utterly amazing as an artist, mother and community member.

My favorite artist of all time ever is Dale Chihuly. I am more than obsessed with his glass art and it may be my ultimate lifetime goal to own a piece someday.

Now we’re house poor, have little furniture, and about 6 things on our walls (with roughly 4000+sq ft of area.) I know I shouldn’t complain, we are very lucky. I’m trying to make things on my own, as I go, but A)I need some inspiration, and B) I need some talent and C) I don’t have much time or energy after I get home from work and spend time with our son. PLEASE choose me! LOL

18.June.2012

I HEART ART!

I like art that speaks of happy, simple times, since so often life seems anything but simple (and therefore not too happy, either). Presently, the only artist that comes to mind would be my old standby, Johannes Vermeer. He’s one of those famous masterpiece-rich artists from the Dutch Golden Age. He painted everyday scenes from Dutch life in the 17th century…simple times. In our new house, however, I think Vermeer masterpieces would be a touch too formal. Tenth Floor Decor looks much more appropriate for our bare, but casual, walls!

I have sort of eclectic taste in art and my two favorite artists couldn’t be more different:

LAURENCE AMELIE (http://laurence-amelie.com/franglais.html) does the most sensational and vibrant abstracts of tutus and flowers. Her use of pastels is so fresh and feminine. I’ve been a fan ever since seeing her featured on Rachel Ashwell’s blog (http://rachelashwellshabbychic.blogspot.com/).

JUSTIN HILLGROVE (http://www.impsandmonsters.com/) does fantastically detailed pop culture paintings in a style that is all his own. I have several of his prints and splurged on an original watercolor of his at the Seattle Urban Craft Uprising last year. His work shows a great sense of humor.

I can’t really specify a favorite; I’m as much in awe of the Masters and museum pieces as I am by astounding work I’ve found at art street fairs, more recently, in Dallas, Austin, TX; Valparaiso, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Ann Arbor, MI. There is so much talent out in this world, I wish it was easier for artists to make a living doing what they love!

My favorite artist is anyone with something to say. To me art isn’t based on the medium, the style, or the price tag. Art can be anything made by anyone. One of my cats is known to make awesome collages with found objects around the house, so far my favorite involves a flip flop, yo yo, foam picture frame, one actual cat toy ball, and a few other objects she found, and artfully arranged in the middle of the hallway. So yes, I have plenty of floor “art” but I would love something lovely on the walls!

I heart art! And I am thrilled to find affordable pieces being offered. Everyone should be able to afford a piece of art.

I HEART ART! (Really I do!) I have a big soft spot for Mandy Sutcliffe’s Belle and Boo designs and art. I have a print of hers hanging in my daughter’s room. As for a classical artist, I’ve always loved Bernini’s sculpture.

There is a Dutch artist I like – Casper Faassen. But I like a lot of different other artist too! He just came to mind first….
