Sponsored Post: The Artful Home




The Artful Home has always been a favorite place for me to admire fine art objects for the home (and, with beautiful jewelry, for the body). I am happy to say they are now an Eclectic Detective affiliate site! With this in mind, I have been scouring their pages for things that I love, so that I can share them with you.

Above and below are limited-edition giclee prints by artist Bjorn Sjogren, whose work I find simply beautiful. In describing his creative process, Sjogren says the following:
I create pictures using my life experiences mingled with, many times, my present inner feelings and a simplicity by some regarded to be the Scandinavian way to paint. When I started to paint in 1987, I had this idea that maybe one can make a picture by simple lines, dots, waves, and other different shapes. By putting the title under the image I let the words interact with the design above--making the viewer's brain produce the full picture.
The titles, in this case, are as follows (from top to bottom): "Fragrance," "Kimono," "Wallflowers," and "Bluegrass." Please click on any image to go to the item page on The Artful Home website.




I hope you enjoy Sjogren's work as much as I do. Stay tuned for more beautiful finds!
