Basically, with $40 to spend I can get two 8"x10" limited edition prints, and I would just have to pay for shipping, or I could get one 11"x14" print, and it would cost me $10 extra plus shipping. I'm leaning towards the two little ones because I'm a fan of little art and I'm not a fan of spending more money.
The problem is, there's too much to choose from! I can't decide what to buy. So I'm asking for your help. I'll lay out all the lovely prints I'm choosing from, and you must comment (down at the end of the post there should be a comment link) to tell me which one(s) I should buy.
Here we go:
|"National Treasures" by Amze Emmons|
Love the colors, the giant head, the wires, the cushion-less couch.
|"Osiris Mountain" by Hollis Brown Thornton|
Oh, the memories of VHS, Polaroid, and cassette tapes... and that pattern!
|"ny.11.#2" by Jennifer Sanchez|
I don't know, there's just something about all those circles and the neon hint.
|"Bird Power" by Carrie Marill|
"Put a bird on it" also applies to walls. And can you say crazy awesome?!
|"Ramona's Bright Idea" by Pattie Lee Becker|
Feet, shapes, and colors, oh my!
|"Down By the River My Lungs and I" by Pattie Lee Becker|
I'm kind of in love with this one. It's hairy and organic and wonderful.
|"First Snow" by Paul Octavious|
The only photograph of the bunch. Love the grey tones and all those little bitty colorful people.
|"Handmade Treehomes, #1a" by Jill Bliss|
My ultimate dream treehouse. And the drawing style is really neat. Yes, I just said "neat."
|"Handmade Treehomes, #1b" by Jill Bliss|
And it's a diptych! But I feel like they work as individuals, too, so I could just get one. Roots=awesome.
|"Stairway" by Tamara Thomsen|
The colors and composition are just great.
|"Flood" by Jaclyn Mednicov|
Love the combination of washy areas and fine details, like all those pebbles.
Do you see the shopping furry people? And the strange pile of gloppy color? And the terrible layout of this store? Hilarious.
|"Trash Mountain" by Megan Whitmarsh|
I don't know about you, but this is the most beautiful mountain of trash I've ever seen.
Well, there you have it, folks. Many excellent options, but only two (or one) can be the winner(s). Now you know why I need your help. Please please comment with your opinion. I don't care if you know nothing about art, just tell me what you think is pretty. Or cool. Or whatever.
