What’s wrong with this picture?

nothing over couch

How about the fact that there’s a huge blank wall over my couch?  It’s begging for a piece of art, yet it remains naked, year after year.   That’s because, like many people, I believed:

1) Art ain’t cheap. When you’re saving for pre-school tuition and ballet classes, there’s not much of a budget for gallery hunting.

2) There are so many choices. I don’t know whether to go for an urban landscape or an abstract portrait.  I just know what I like when I see it. 

3) It’s a big decision and an intimidating purchase — the opposite of buying a tee-shirt at The Gap.

Then I found out about ARTtwo50, which alleviates all of these issues.  It’s an iPad app that lets you upload a picture of your space so you can shop for paintings and see exactly what they would look like in your home.

Not only can you find the painting of your dreams that perfectly suits your decor, but you’re not going to break the bank.

* Each piece costs just $250, like this mixed-media beauty:
