Art Discovery with Reader Discount

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Do you know my favorite thing about the internets?  It's the way you can connect with like-minded people hundreds of miles away that you otherwise never would have had the opportunity to meet!  Case and point:  last week I got a nice email from a talented artist gal named Carolyn Shultz about some lamps I had for sale on a post I did months ago. Through the magic of Pinterest and all the associated linky stuff, she found my little blog and contacted me about the lamp. We had a nice cyber chat, which led me to her website- and (holy talented!), you have got to see these paintings!

Completely gorgeous, right?  And Carolyn is not only a talented painter, she's also a little design-obsessed (kindred spirits much?) and many of her paintings are inspired by her favorite fabrics combined with some floral loveliness.

Carolyn also has a wonderful selection of abstract paintings.  This little number is already sold, but I just love paintings that are a celebration of gorgeous color!

Another ikat piece.

And here's my personal favorite!  If you've checked in on this blog from time to time, you probably know that I have a soft spot for "pretty", which explains my love for this piece:

So, if you have an area in your home that could use a shot of pretty, check out Blue Poppy Design's Etsy shop!   

When you find one or ten paintings you want to purchase, enter the discount code "GREEN20" (with no spaces) and you will receive 20% off your purchase - and that includes commissioned pieces as well!

A great way to kick off an early weekend celebration, no?

PS - stay tuned, I have a fantastic giveaway planned next week.  Here's a little hint:  it starts with "N" and ends with "ovica".
