Art and Such: Living Room Edition

We are both pretty serious arts festival junkies. I think for me it dates back to going to the Canton Flea Market in Canton, TX, or because its seems to mean summer is officially here or maybe its because I have yet to meet a funnel cake I could consume in under 2 minutes flat. But we at Pretty as the Morning love us some arts festivals.

Last year for the first time we attended the Broad Ripple Arts Fair and fell in love with a particular artist, Dolan Geiman. I am sure you could find fabulously written reviews on his work anywhere out there, but I seriously love it. It is the perfect blend of vintage Americana while still being fresh and modern and of course, its got this great Southern twist. Love.

So for the last year I have been scoping out all thier work on etsy and have pretty much decided that this piece would look amazing over our couch and be the perfect thing to compliment our letterpress print collection that is already in there:

More recently I have decided that this beauty would be perfect for the long (and still empty) wall in our dining room. The color and composition would work well with our very natural and soft feel we have in there while still tying together its neighboring room:

But since we are in no shape this particular year to spend that kind of money on art work (one day soon I hope!) this year at the arts festival we purchase this lovely set to hang alongside our "Love Your Neighbor" poster (once it has arrived and is framed) next to the front door. The colors go magically well in our living room with our existing work. I am hoping to hang them one night after work and will snap some pics to share here.

They are small, but a good start to a no doubt soon to be growing collection.
