Charming Evan

Rather than splurging on individual gifts for one another on our wedding anniversary, Jon and I like to purchase a piece of artwork for our home—the pressure of individual gift giving is reserved for birthdays. We have a lot of fun searching for pieces we like and then narrowing down.

The only stipulations we have set for ourselves is that we both have to like the piece and that we can afford it. Actually most of our acquisitions have been very affordable since we often buy prints or artwork from local, upcoming artist.

So when I stumbled across the artist, Evan B. Harris on the Charmingwall website last year, we both felt pretty sure what our 2009 anniversary would bring. I love Evan’s 20th century style and that he uses things like plastic resin and melted wax as mediums in his original art. We ended up ordering two prints and they arrived in two days. What do you think?

As a bonus to this purchase we were finally able to clean the dust of the never-before-used IKEA frames I bought at least 3 years ago, hooray!

I love them!!
This makes me want to start replacing our wall decorations with real art... The task just seems so overwhelming as we have a lot of crappy wall decor already.
