The "Art" of buying Art Online

May 15, 2014

Hellooo Loves

Can you believe it 3 posts in one week!!!

So today I wanted to talk about art.

My brain or I should say my eyes are on overload from all the online options to purchase art. There are soooo MANY talented artists out there.

Currently I have been scouring the web for fantastical pieces of art for Baby E and Lil J's rooms.

Now we all know Etsy is pretty fantastic  but I found a few new sites.. wanna hear about them? Of course you do...

For Miss E I am in search of something whimsical and pretty, I know not exactly going out of the idea box for a little girl but that's what I am wanting for her room... I am seeing PINK!

I found this beautiful piece by Sara Riches on Pinterest ... Pretty Gorgeous right?

"Take Me Away" by Sara Riches

So I clicked on this fabulous Picture on Pinterest and it lead me to this site called Saatchi Art... Have you guys heard of this site?
 (or am I the only one living under a rock over here)

There are soo many pieces of beautiful creative EYE CANDY on this site and if you can't afford the original, a print of a piece can sell for $40... can you say affordable?

You can search everything from collages to video. Once I started pursuing the site I found there is even an inspired by section and if you an artist you can post your work on the site and they even have an artist showdown check it out HERE. I love that they have a "Showdown"  Can you tell I am happy that I found this site

Here is what the company is all about in their words.. 

SAATCHI ART IS THE WORLD’S LEADING ONLINE ART GALLERY, CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH ART AND ARTISTS THEY LOVE.

Continuing the Saatchi Gallery’s legacy of promoting new, contemporary talent and bringing great art to a wide audience, Saatchi Art offers an unparalleled selection of paintings, drawings, sculpture and photography in a range of prices, and it provides artists from around the world with an expertly curated environment in which to exhibit and sell their work.

For lil J I am thinking planes, heavy machinery, cars you know boy stuff

I found this piece on the site 20x200... another fabulous online art site.

Balsa Planes #3 by Paul Madonna

It is exactly what I have been looking for... This is part of a series and I have to say I would love to get Lil J all of them for his room and maybe create a paper plane bunting to go up as well... I am seeing a theme here but I think he might miss his cars


20x200 is a site I have been in love with for awhile I am mean their motto is "It's Art for Everyone" . I think this tidbit from their "About Us" section really sums up this site and company:

We're as meticulous with our $24 prints as we are with our $10,000 pieces, lavishing attention on the details every step of the way. (And believe us, there are a lot of steps!) Thoughtful, well-researched information and documentation accompany every print we ship. Our email announcements about new releases are well-researched, opinionated, entertaining, and often irreverent. We take art seriously, but we're certainly not stuffy about it! 


Oh and how could I forget there is also the gallery here at Casa M!
We mostly curate Lil J's masterpieces.


I have to say I love that lil J is such an artist... and I love that he wants to show off his work.

Here is a great article about kids and art: The Importance of Art in Child Development

Alright there you go now you are more informed on the "Art" of online art shops! You are welcome!! I am excited to share Baby E and Lil J's rooms with their fancy new art pieces once they arrive!!!

Happy Thursday Loves!! One more sleep and it is FRIDAY

XOXO
