For as much junk as I have in my home, my walls are surprisingly bare. I have very few photos hung (but big plans for those soon) and almost no artwork. I was thrilled then to finally purchase a couple of pieces that I've had my eye on for a long time now and hang them on my formerly bare walls!
These gorgeous paintings (really, mixed-media pieces if you want to be precise) were made by my dear friend Jodi. I first saw them several months ago when Jodi posted about some of her work being displayed at a local shop against a red wall. Normally I'm not much of a yellow person but the combination of the yellows, blacks and grays against that red was just so striking that I've never forgotten it! I have similar red walls in my front room so I knew that they would look right at home here too.
I was right--they're just beautiful. I loved them from the photo online, but they're even better in person! It makes me happy to look at them because they're so pretty, but also because they make me think of someone I've really admire because of her hard work and commitment to her creative dreams. :) Jodi has an etsy shop if you'd like to see more of her work!
