art finds

Oh how I love to find art that tells a story!  Interior spaces that are layered with art old and new feel lived in and interesting.

Today I found some amazing pieces at a local second hand shop in town.  The large piece is a lithograph by Rudolph Veil and the smaller piece is an old oil painting of the sea. I also picked up an antique frame for my own art.  It was only 12 dollars!  The great thing about these pieces is that not only are they affordable, but the tell a story.  They feel lived in like an old pair of jeans.  So next time you are tempted to buy a mass produced piece from your local chain, do a little hunting.  You will be amazed at what you can find!
