GIVEAWAY: lovely original art!

This Giveaway Has Ended. Check our home page on Monday
for info on our newest giveaway!





















I love buying art off etsy as much as the next person (okaaay way more than the next person, exhibit A: my entire apartment), but one thing about buying art from etsy that's discouraging (and really from almost anywhere if you have the kind of budget where a blog like S/20 is appealing to you) is that almost everything affordable is a print. And prints are fabulous (exhibits B-F: my apartment), but there's something extra wonderful about knowing you're the only person in the world who owns a particular bit of art. artwatercolor's shop is little gem of a place on the internet where you can fabulous high quality watercolors and know you're the only one on earth with your one of a kind work of art. The winner of this giveaway has a choice of the stately nude or beautiful homescape. This giveaway accepts worldwide shipping addresses.


This is probably my absolutely favorite original in artwatercolor's shop. I love how the house feels like it has a rainbow living inside it. Bright but muted colors and wonderful lines on the house and the tree behind it make me want to walk right up those steps and ask if I can visit for a bit.






This adorable family of birds just slays me. The shadows and light of the tree branches and nest are absolutely fantastic, and the silhouette-like portraits give the birds an air of stillness and watchfulness. This would be just the thing in a sitting room or reading corner, to get you to that place right between serene and aware.


And here's a rush of color that will startle you awake, somehow in a pleasant, well-rested, and energetic mood. I love that this bouquet doesn't look like a typical bouquet print, that the flowers all seem so alive in their haphazardly arranged way.



The giveaway runs from 4:00 PM PST today (Monday) until 10:00 PM PST, September 27th (Sunday). The winner will be chosen by random.org and emailed on Monday. If the winner does not respond within 24 hours, a second winner will be chosen. Stuff Under Twenty is not responsible for the giveaway after the winner and the storeowner have been put in contact with each other. This giveaway accepts WORLDWIDE MAILING ADDRESSES.

  1. The Original art watercolor painting - Leaf is my absolute favorite! I have had an itch to completely re-do my living room and this picture inspires me. I can see this as being the focal point of the room and picking my paint colors and everything to go with this painting. I love it!

  34. Forest-Original is my favorite by far, although all are beautiful. The Forest work stirs up memories from childhood, of vacations in northern Minnesota with my family. Absolutely beautiful in its simplicity, and the peacefulness that it invokes~
