Shiny New Painting: Original Art

Brittney Jette Original Portrait Painting

Original Art on a Budget

I am just putting the finishing touches on my master bedroom and the remaining decor budget is devoted towards acquiring original art; nothing more than $50 per piece is the goal.  Not an easy feat.

I wanted a small painting to hang to the left of a large mirror that takes up most of the wall. The artists on never fail to offer soulful paintings that fit a slim decor budget.

Portraits Set the Mood

Artist Britney Jette’s portrait work caught my eye and now one of her paintings helps establish a happy, relaxed mood in the space. I love supporting these talented, independent artists and would much rather give them my hard-earned decorating dollars than to a big box store. Thank you, Britney!

Go Big in a Small Space

For larger original work on a shoestring, look for paintings or drawings on artist paper instead of canvas. But finding a frame to match is often more expensive than the painting itself. Check out this cool DIY gallery frame, which was a design game changer.
