Have you ever bought a small piece of art because you just had to have it, but it seems so tiny on a wall in your home? Or perhaps you rent and do not want to create holes in your walls. You can easily create a stylish vignette on a table top or nightstand using the small artwork, a vase of flowers, and a few small, "found" objects. In this case, I used a round shaped vase to offset the rectangular shape of my artwork. The vase has a beautiful, earthy color palette and a rich glaze. The dripped pattern on the surface of the vase even picks up the dripped pattern in my painting, creating an interesting motif. Faux floral keeps things easy, again using colors and shapes that work well with my painting but don't detract from it. Since I love natural treasures such as rocks, shells and minerals, it was easy to sort through my box and find a few that I wanted to showcase. The colors, patterns, shapes and texture keep things earthy. I love the intimate feeling of this little display, and it's easy to change out if you enjoy decorating for the change in seasons. This painting is called "Rain on the River" and is available from my Summer Storms collection. You can shop for it HERE.
I'm a lifelong artist living just outside of Chicago. I love flowers, vintage finds, nature hikes and all things beautiful.
