"Collective" by Jodi Fuchs
I saw this canvas art today at Cost Plus World Market and instantly fell in love with the fresh, cheerful colors. You really can't look at this painting and feel depressed. It's just really lovely. I would love to hang it up in my home office.
After Googling the artist's name, I was surprised to find that she actually has an Etsy shop, where she sells decorative art. Here are my options:
- Buy the canvas art from World Market. I love the way stretched canvas art looks on the wall, and the canvas adds a great texture to the artwork. But priced at $103 on sale, realistically this isn't really an option for me.
- Buy the poster from the artist's Etsy shop. At $34, this is much more affordable, and the money would go directly to the artist. But the poster just doesn't have the same presence as the canvas art.
- Get my mom to make a quilt version. This would be free for me and would look awesome. My mom's quilts always impress my friends. But this probably has a low chance of completion. No offense, Mom.
- Buy a blank canvas and paint myself a copy. This has the coolness factor of being one-of-a-kind, if not exactly "original." I'm not sure how much this would cost; I might be able to snag a big canvas for about $40 during a sale. Although it might be fun to paint, I would prefer to support the original artist somehow.
Maybe I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope that World Market comes out with an awesome Groupon! Do you have any other ideas?
