These days there’s no excuse for having bare walls in your home. You can find fun and affordable art on the internet, at flea markets and even from your child’s backpack. Art can be done on any medium and in any style. And as long as it appeals to you and generates some sort of emotion, it’s worth investing in.
Graphic, bold prints are a great way to start.

Add a little sparkle to your home with multi media art by Camomile Hixon, a New York-based pop artist who works in large scale glitter art. If you live in Los Angeles (and you’ve misplaced your invitation to the Grammies this weekend), starting Sunday, February 12, you can see her work firsthand at her new exhibit at Frank Pictures in Santa Monica.
Jeff Canham’s art may look like it appeals to the younger crowd but his whimsical play on words and images would work in a kitchen, bedroom or family room. He created a special series of flags and pennants for the Standard Hotel. According to them, “each represents a different letter of the alphabet, referencing traditional nautical flags in the artist’s distinctive graphic style.”
Their playful take on famous beach towns such as the Hamptons and other destinations remind us of the long days of summer and a blackberry-less, iphone-less vacation.
Remember those days?
