I was really overwhelmed by the amount of items for sale, but I managed to find two pieces of art that I really loved. I hardly ever buy original art, but it tends to be more affordable at estate sales and therefore more accessible. The homeowner's father helped found the Tennessee Art League and he and his wife supported any and every local artist they met by buying art from them. There was so, so, so much art!
On a table piled high of unframed art, I found the below pieces. The first was really intriguing - a forest scene that was complete except for the deer. I'm going through a bit of a deer phase right now anyway, but I just thought it was so cool how everything was finished except for them. There are pencil outlines and marks, but no paint. It's so unique and now hangs in our dining room.
The second piece I bought looks straight from Etsy. I'm not sure when it was painted but it looks really modern. I like its unusual size/shape and the colors match the majority of our living room. It just looks peaceful!
