ARTmonday: 8 Affordable Artworks from the Minted Summer 2015 Collection

As anyone who reads my blog knows I have a a great love affair with art. Other women buy shoes, I come home with art. (Longer shelf life, and often less expensive these days). In addition to supporting local organizations like the School of Museum of Fine Arts and MassArt in Boston, and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill and Provincetown Art Association & Museum in the summertime, I pick up a lot of appealing affordable artwork from sites like 20×200 and StyleCarrot partner Minted.

You are likely familiar with Minted for its invitations, but they have quite the selection of affordable limited edition art prints as well. There’s even a crowd-sourcing function where you can vote on how much you like the designs that I may be a tiny bit obsessed with. The Minted Summer 2015 Collection is full of colorful affordable art prints by emerging artists that you can purchase framed or unframed. I picked my 8 favorites here, including the framed print they sent which looks cute on the art shelf above my desk.

I love the way this framed pineapple still life photo from Minted looks on the shelf above my desk in Boston, especially beside the little Grass Vase by Normann Copenhagen. I shot this one for my Instagram, but I’ll take others and post when I’m back home this fall. Minted’s Instagram is worth a follow too with tons of cute affordable art in pretty interiors and and stationary vignettes.

Jaime Derringer Design Milk Art Available At Minted

I used to work for Jaime Derringer on her contemporary design site Design Milk. So of course, I had to have on of her original watercolors, which I hung in our Florida condo. It’s the drippy vertical abstract in the middle. Here’s what she’s got for sale on Minted.

ARTmonday: 16 Pieces of Sports Artwork

Ok, so first #PatsNation #WeWon #Phew. I watched the Patriots/Seahawks Superbowl game last night, obviously. Or at least the half time show. (Dancing sharks?) Actually, I watched the second half of the game (half watched as I sourced these sports artworks). I was a little bit worried about my son, who takes all things Patriots very seriously. Even the phone call canceling school didn’t get a cheer. But the Patriots pulled it off again. So, yay. But boo to the snow day.

Here are 16 sports artworks, covering one angle or another of skiing, fishing, swimming, sailing, ice hockey, volleyball, ostrich racing (huh?), surfing, tennis, cycling, cheerleading, football, golf, and boxing. Now bundle up and go sledding.

ARTmonday: 15 Bicycle Artworks

No deep thoughts today, or even particularly serious artwork. Just some fun images of bicycles. Over the weekend it was almost warm enough, by Boston standards (and by that I mean it was over 40 degrees and sunny), to think about getting my bike down from its hanging place and going for a ride on the Esplanade. I settled for a walk It’s wet and muddy, with dirty, frozen mounds of snow still scattered, but I’m hopeful. For now (unless I become a different person and hit the new Soul Cycle),  I’ll just enjoy these 15 bicycle artworks.
