Do you have any naked walls that are crying out for some interesting, colorful artwork? Is your art budget too small to buy an original from a hip, up and coming artist?
Do you even HAVE an art budget?
But I do know some young, up and coming artists whose masterpieces are the perfect accents for my walls… my kids.
This wall in our foyer displays two of my children’s third grade interpretations of a Van Gogh classic. (no, I don’t know the name of the classic, you should be impressed that I could spell Van Gogh).
The small white sticker in the lower right hand corner of the top painting is from the school art show–my son won a first place ribbon! (Sorry, HAD to slip that in…)
This pencil drawing of a tennis shoe was done by my oldest daughter. It is hanging in our bonus room/rec room above the garage. The room has a sports theme, so the shoe is perfect.
My kids created these under the watchful eyes of their very talented art teachers, but even small children can create “abstract” art , just give them paint or oil pastels that coordinate with your decor and let them go!
These pieces of art reflect our casual family style and are great conversation starters when we have visitors to our home. And that… Works for Me! Check out more Works for Me Wednesday ideas here.
