i love art where its creator is able to work the canvas and create interesting textures, color, and composition. so ... consider this a plug for a really talented artist. her name is gwen and she creates beautiful, vibrant one of a kind paintings that reflect people, places, and the everyday. i love her cityscapes and was thrilled to get a piece of her art (the one up top) as a keepsake of our time spent in philadelphia. she also creates figurative and urban fine art paintings and has lots to choose from in her etsy shop.
go check her out if your walls are in need some color and you want to update your space with an edgy, urban vibe. she has originals as well as prints. you can find her here.
