Happy Monday everyone! Please enjoy another collection of art, each for under $100.00. When buying art for your home don't limit yourself based on the decor and color in your space. Having artwork that matches your design can make a room look pulled together and cohesive but it doesn't alway have to match your scheme. Art should speak to you on a personal level; your collection should be unique to you. Walls full of art that relates to you can be powerful and cultural; don't be afraid of a abstract painting if you live in an Antebellum style home and be proud to hang a classic impressionism painting in an ultra-modern penthouse. Good art is in the eye of the beholder and a good collection of art should be a representation of you. 

1. NY. 11. #12 by Jennifer Sanchez- $60.00 for a 14" x 11" limited edition print
Jennifer Sanchez one of my favorite contemporary artist. She's based out of New York and her work is typically colorful, optimistic and reminiscent of urban street art. NY. 11 #12 is much darker then most paintings by Sanchez and I think it would look great as a print. There are only 25 left of the limited-edition, signed and numbered prints from 20x200.

2. Abyss of the Disheartened : IV by Heather Landis- $35.00 for a 10" x 7" limited edition
This seriers of underwater photography is sweet and eerie at the same time. The photo above is printed on ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, archival paper. Check out the rest of the series here.

3. Set of Butterfly Photographs by Irene Suchocki- $30.00 for a set of four 5" x 5" original photographs
I mentioned one of Irene's photos last week but I couldn't resist showing another one this week (very different from the last). This set of 4 archival quality photographs can be hung together, separate, in a row or in the square formation shown above. I love small series like this, so pretty.

4. Desert Collage by Michelle Tavares- $13.00 for an 8" x 10" signed print
This piece was originally a collaged photograph, it has been reproduced and printed on a heavyweight, satin photo paper. Georgia based artist, Michelle Tavares, does a lot of unique work with photographs and watercolors.

5. Collared Aracari by Todd R. Forsgren- $60.00 for a 14" x 11"
The Washington D.C. based photographer is very interested in ecology, the environment and natural history. He photographs birds as they are briefly caught in a net, the result is a vulnerable and delicate composition, the net almost looks like a line drawing in the background.

Here are some examples of artwork that look amazing in a room even though they don't "match" the style of the decor. One thing these rooms have in common is that the artwork tells a story about it's buyer.
