So for those of us who can get frustrated trolling eBay (me) or feel poor just walking past an art gallery (really me) there's Zatista, an online goldmine of original, affordable artwork. Check out some offerings:
30 by Sharis DeJaynes, $150.
Magenta Summer by Susan Grissom, $1800.
Strider by Edward Zelinsky, $100.
You can search by type, medium, style and price which I totally appreciate. One artist not on Zatista (not yet at least) is my friend Sally King Benedict, whom I've come to find out is a favorite of Style Court, Jamie Meares and other bloggerati:
Because she's so friggin' talented! Sally is now Mrs. Read as she got married in Atlanta two weekends ago -- her processional to the lawn was closely guarded by bridesmaids with white parasols until a reveal one guest compared to Madame Butterfly. I wept openly at the beauty. Anyway, she recently relaunched her website and I want every single work. The honeymoon should only bring more inspiration!
