It seems like portraits have become really trendy over the last few years. It makes no difference if you know the person or not, vintage portraits have especially become treasures to find at flea markets or thrift stores. It’s also upped their price tags big time, in most cases. Want to add a lady (or two) to your walls? I thought I’d share my favorite source for portraits. They’re not vintage but give you a similar feel without the huge price tag.
Janet Hill Studio is one of my favorite artists and Etsy shops. You may be more familiar with her colorful paintings of retro girls in fun settings, but I just can’t get enough of her beautiful portraits. And, the price is right. Most of the art prints in her shop range from $25 to $45.
“Elspeth” and her turtledove (pictured above) have been with me for several years now. Every time she appears in my Instagram feed, someone comments that she looks like me. :) Trust me when I tell you that would not be my expression if I had a bird on my shoulder. . .
I had to add the pipe smoking guy. Wouldn’t he be fun in an office or study?
For a more authentic vintage look, skip the mat and pop one of these into an ornate gold frame.
