Ever since I discovered the art of Samantha French via Lonny Mag I’ve been wanting to buy a piece for myself. Swimming is a big part of life in the summer here in Austin and these remind me of good memories at Barton Springs and Deep Eddy pool… I’ve got a pretty sick collection of movie posters and concert paraphernalia going at my place, but eventually I’d like to start buying some art, too. You know, the kind with a capital “A”. The problem is that most of the good stuff is WAY out of my price range. The good news is that Samantha has an etsy store offering tons of prints, most for under $100. I haven’t decided which one I like best, but I’m thinking maybe that guy at the top.
