Big Now: Abstract Art

Money CAN buy you happiness (on canvas)

Have you noticed all of the abstract art in shelter mags and blogs lately?  I love it!  And I love that so many artists are selling their works online. Here are a few I’m down-right digging:

I’d love to hear if you’ve bought any original art lately!  Where did you put it?  I’m still loving the painting I purchased from Erin Ashley for my office, and I’m definitely on the hunt for another piece for the ever-elusive living room.

Have a great week!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. ooohhh I love #1 and #3 —- thanks for posting these finds; I have been wanting one of these colorful abstract-type paintings for our home but just thought they would be crazy expensive!!! These are great prices — happy Monday

  2. Hello, newest additions to my abstract art bookmarks. I’m a little obsessed with abstracts, too. And I’m still in shock Swalla Studio’s pieces are so affordable! Still pining after your Erin Ashley art. One of the best I’ve ever seen.

  3. Thanks for your feedback ladies! I was so curious what you would all like. I can’t decide, myself.

    Bentley – thank you for the links! I’m always looking for new artists.

  4. E- you know those are totally my jam – especially the first one. Your comment on my pillow giveaway made me laugh out loud and I am secretly hoping you are the winner – they are so you!
    -E (

  5. I love these! And even more-so that painting your own could be such a fun and simple DIY project, yet would have such a serious impact on a room!

  6. Erika I love all of these. And I have had the last one in my etsy cart for a while for the new baby’s room 🙂 But I love the first one so much too! I need to take pictures of the etsy art I have purchased for our new house and send them over!

  7. I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you
    ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
