Spice up your walls with unique and original paintings from talented Etsy artists.
Want to add a pop of color to your room? Accomplish that with the Red Poppies original painting by Etsy seller Twigs and Lace (find her on Twitter and Facebook). The seller snapped a photo while out on a walk, and from that created this original acrylic on canvas painting. The beautiful red poppies on muted green stalks are reaching toward the blue sky on a gorgeous summer day. Beautiful!
Etsy seller Distinctive Color Art (find her on Twitter and Facebook) created the Flowering Tree painting, giving you the opportunity to add an original painting to your home. The painting features a white impasto flowering tree on a blue and green abstract background. The sides are also painted, so hang it just as it is -- no framing necessary. As the seller notes, "Why buy a print when you can have a lovely original at such an affordable price?"
Allow UK Etsy seller The Black Bird Sings (find her on Twitter) to bring an original painting to your living room. This painting is one of the seller's most recent original paintings and was exhibited at the Chelsea Art Fair in London. It explores her love of birds and fascination with the night sky and the constellations. The detailing in this painting is even more delicate in reality than it appears on your computer screen -- it's magical.
The original tree painting by Etsy seller HJM Art (find her on Twitter and Facebook) is titled Holding Your Heart. It is created on back-stapled, gallery-wrapped canvas using the seller's unique acrylic painting technique, wired and ready to hang right out the package! You don't even need a frame -- the sides are painted black. You'll also receive a signed certificate of authenticity. Another gorgeous piece!
