Gift Guide for Art Lovers

Gift buying should be easy, but sometimes it can be tricky to find the right thing, especially for artists and art lovers.  We’re kind of known to be picky. I hope this helps! Canvases (gallery wrapped are the best, start with sizes 12×12 – 18×24)  Inspire them to create! Oil Paint (Williamsburg oils, Old Holland, and Gamblin are my favorite).  Even if you just buy 1-2 tubes, color inspires amazing things in creative minds. Print Sets!  I am offering 4 different collections of curated artwork; boxed, wrapped, lovely, and ready for the Christmas tree! Paint brushes.  A good paint brush is like a magic wand in the right hands!  Rosemary and Winsor & Newton are two of my favorites. Brushstroke Ornaments.  Special handpainted ceramic globe (fit for the tree and for the home all year long!) iPhone Case.  Artist-y-ness for your phone! Handpainted Handbag.  Fashion statement perfect for the art lover in your life!  Completely original and unique. Art classes at a local arts center or studio. and… if all else fails, a gift card…
