This is mantle in its sad depressing state before the vibrant piece of art took over.
It is an original piece of art which is exactly what I was looking for.
I even love the rustic frame it came in and if you look closely,
you can see two tiny crosses on the left side of the painting.
It helps tie all the warm and cool colors in the room together.
While I am thoroughly enjoying my $6.00 original art, I am saving my pennies for a piece of art from a friend/neighbor of mine, Glenna Adkins. She is an extremely talented artist and I can't wait to own one of her masterpieces. Her amazing work can be seen here.
I am particularly fond of this one.
And this one (I love the idea of adding a piece of abstract art to my fairly traditional living room).
