You know I always love to share affordable art finds with you here and today I'd like to introduce you to Linda Donohue, an abstract landscape painter and furniture designer who is now a sponsor of my blog. Linda hails from the charming town of Petaluma, an antique mecca just north of San Francisco. In fact, both of my antique cast iron pans were purchased in that town almost a decade ago. If you're in the area, take a day trip!
Linda's paintings are ready-to-hang so there's no need to spend a few hundred dollars on a fancy frame. The wrapped canvases look very polished on the wall and speak for themselves. This is a wonderful opportunity to treat yourself to a little something for Mother's Day (I'm a big fan of collecting little pieces of original art on holidays) or just because your wall is screaming for something interesting to grace its empty space. Linda's paintings come in all shapes and sizes so there is something for every budget.
On a side note, you may be interested to know that Linda always dreamed of being a horse trainer as a child--hence the handful of horse paintings. Also, some of her paintings have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens and HGTV's Secrets of a Stylist show.
You can explore more of Linda's artwork in her etsy shop. Enjoy!
