Six new16x20s were added to the gallery this weekend. Catch a sneak peek below or head over to the Etsy shop to snag one up.

About these abstract flats:

My mission has always been to bring original, affordable fine art to homes.  I think it is important to have something on your walls that is just for you.  That’s one-of-a-kind.  That has real paint on it.  Art can (and will) not only change the way a room feels, but the way you feel about a room.  That’s why I added a new section to our Etsy shop last year–in an effort to bring fine art to as many homes as possible–16×20 original paintings on unstretched canvases.

These paintings, although smaller than my 24x30s or 24x36s that you are accustom to seeing in the gallery, will still provide your space with a pop of interest–at a fraction of the cost.  The 16×20 flats are ready to be framed when they arrive at your home (or business!).  And speaking of shipping, the canvas flats also cut down on shipping fees because they can easily be rolled up and shipped in a sturdy tube. Win!

What do you think?

  1. Love them! I was looking at the freaking HUGE painting dementions and WOW that painting is huuuuuge. It would look incredible in any big vaulted ceiling room.

  2. Ohh man. We just bought a new car so my dreams of buying pretty things for the house are on hold. Oh how I would love the navy, chartruse, green, gray painting for my LR!!! Maybe after I finish grad school and get a job :(

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it.
