ART FINDS

 A while ago I found these framed prints  in my hunt for treasures to sell. Pictures don't always sell well at our sales but there was something about these that I really liked, even though they weren't vintage or antique art. They were folk art which I personally like, and the colors were bright and happy! So I bought them.  Sorry about the poor images here. The lighting didn't work for me.



After two events they didn't sell but still liking them myself, I decided to see if they might fit in my home. And yaaaaahhh, I'm so glad I did! They really fit into the way I was decorating my home as I became more intentional about my decor and weeding out what didn't fit. Now I'm happy they didn't sell! I guess they were meant for me to have after all!




I checked out the history of the artist, Colleen Sgroi,  online and found that the artist was quite well known in  New England where she lives. Her paintings have been purchased by such famous people as Congressman Marty Meehan, State Rep. Bill Green, and Actor Matt LaBlanc of "Friends". Disney also used two of her Noah's Ark images for their Baby Einstein DVD's.She has a website here. Go check out her work! And be sure to check out the art we have for sale when you come to our events. You never know what you are going to find!
