A glorious trio of driftwood angels by Michigan artist Amy Lansburg. Each angel is under 20" tall, $85 each plus shipping. Private message Amy through her Facebook page.
Holy cow look at this beauty from Chicago artist Dolan Geiman. I received a similar piece from Genna for my 40th birthday this year (the first in the series, thank you very much) and it immediately rocketed to favorite status in my collection. Dolan has pieces available for all budgets at dolangeiman.com.
'Bitzen' fobot by NC artist Amy Flynn. This little guy + tons of other great fobots (found object robots) available on Amy's bigcartel page.
Bite sized photos from CA artist Audrey Heller. I gifted these to my god children last Christmas and they were a huge hit.
And, of course, if you really love someone you should give them a Grushovenko. We'll be posting a new, small, specially priced piece on our Facebook page every morning December 1st-12th. These pieces will be available ONLY THROUGH FACEBOOK. First private message for each piece wins. The one shown above is 'The Cabin', a 9" x 12" oil on masonite, framed in black, shipping included for $250 (regularly $350). Other available pieces online at grushovenko.com.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE! If you have any other recommendations for great art buying opportunities, please post them in the comments section.
