New Art

I've been slowly but surely acquiring new art for the walls. At first I was just methodically collecting pieces for my office, but now I'm replacing more and more things in the house. My goal is to have a large collection of eclectic beauties that are created by artists by hand, not mass produced. As much as I love some of the prints I've purchased at IKEA, it's time for a change!

My most recent find is an incredible mixed media work by Kerry Bogert. I've fell in love with it the minute I saw it on Kerry's blog, before it was even for sale. And when I found out she'd put it in her Etsy shop -- oh man.

She has others for sale, so it took me a while to decide -- the green/blue, or the pink/red? I finally decided on this one, as it had such soothing colors and just spoke to me in a different way. I'm eagerly awaiting more from her, because I'm certain it won't be the last one I buy.

You can see more of Kerry's work at her Etsy store, and be sure to check our her whimsical lampwork and wire jewelry by clicking here.

    I love it! (And the pink/red one, too...I checked her out.) Lori, she probably lives about 20 minutes from me. Have you ever met her in person?


  3. No, I've never had the pleasure! And of course I owe you a visit, too!!!!


I appreciate comments! Thank you for contributing to the conversation.
