    I always have my eye open for prints/photographs to frame and put up.
    Granted, I'm still apt living, so I don't have a permanent set of furniture/theme to match, so I'm pretty free to put up whatever I want.

    I've been a fan of Lichtenstein ever since I saw an exhibit in Madrid a few years ago.

    I've been planning on getting this one for a while. Yardsale beat me to it :mamoru:

    Please don't troll up this thread with that Ikea/Audrey crap. I will not hesitate delete this thread (and subsequently all the posts in it) and start over again.

    I have no art in my place yet. I'm thinking of framing some random crap from SF in a shadowbox and hanging it over my desk...when I buy a new desk :hs:

    a couple of original oil on canvas works from a local artist named stephanie harding. she hangs her work in my dad's restaurant and we sell them for her. neither is hung because my place is only temporary and i didnt want to put holes in the walls

    this is the first piece i bought. i kept it in the restaurant for a while. i paid $250 for it when the girl was tight for cash :o after i bought it i got a bunch of offers for well over that. i like it tho so i want to keep it for a while :) it has a very warm copper tone to it in real life

    this is actually my sisters, the pic doesnt do it justice. its much richer irl

    thats cool. i like mine :o

    i like the simple abstract quality of mine. hers is very beautiful tho, and probably took a lot more time to make. it was made more recently as well, so the artist has had more experience

    I actually collect silkscreen gig posters like that :thumbsup:. I just picked up on from Brand New and Manchester Orchestra (1 of 55). That one is really nice and I love The Decemberists.

    I'm not sure. I took it with a canon 10d so I think whatever 6megapixels can go up to comfortably :o
