ARTmonday: 14 Apple Artworks

Today is Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the Jewish New Year. One of the traditions Jews observe is to dip apples into honey to signify the sweetness of a new year. In celebration of the new year, here are 14 apple artworks.

Included are self portraits by two of my favorite Boston photographers (I don’t think either is Jewish), Japanese sculpture, a young Mick Jagger (not Jewish), and more traditional apple still lifes. Shana Tovah!

And some bonus pieces.
One can’t consider of apple artwork without Rene Magritte.
I saw the Magritte retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in 1992; a total treat.

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.
