(Marsh) F Painting by Katherine Sandoz – $600

One of my all-time favorite artists, Katherine Sandoz, recently updated her online boutique of luxury things with a few stunning, abstract landscapes that I simply cannot get enough of.

They are framed too, which makes them easy-to-hang upon birth — which is exactly what you’ll want to do once you find these gorgeous colours and strokes along with your eyes.
