Creating Unexpected Modern Art

Lately I am loving oversized photography in interiors.Especially that of animals. Even a sweet and traditional photograph becomes a modern piece of art when it’s larger than expected.

So I am EXTREMELY lucky to know a talented photographer who captures the personality of a farm animal like no other.And she’s lucky to have built in subjects all around that farm house of hers.This one I have plans for… Hoping a client adopts this pup in something about 4 feet wide. Not that that’s extremely oversized, but it’s most of the width of the wall.These last two were captured on a mission trip she did to¬†Ecuador. Wouldn’t this cow be a fantastic wall mural?So stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it!

I probably don’t need to introduce you to Miss Tricia Whitmer again. We have collaborated on several fun projects including her farm house featured in Flea Market Decor magazine, some of our portfolio photography, and several trips to Scott Antique Market. Even though Tricia is primarily a portrait artist, her blog posts and Facebook page include so many amazing images like these that she is able to capture through that lens of hers. Venture over to her website and see which critter you would print in say, something 6 feet wide for over a sofa. If you need advice on placing and hanging your artwork, give the Scouts a call. We’d be happy to advise you on creating a look that is all your own.
