Tracy Melton’s Tree Ring Art

I know that I often feature Etsy products on my blog, and that doesn’t always scream “high design.”  Yes, it’s super to have a few high-end paintings studding your wall and a $4,000 sofa flanked by Murano glass lamps, but not many people can hang a month’s salary above every console table.  This is one of the reasons I truly adore the QUALITY products on Etsy:  unexpectedly exceptional products at affordable prices, and you’re helping the actual crafter/maker/artist earn a living!

But I digress. I am in love with the Tree Ring Paintings by artist, Tracy Melton.

Based out of Knoxville, he sells them in his Etsy store called FocusLineArt.  They’re about $100 for three and worth every penny.  The measurements are about 5-6” in diameter and 2.5” deep; there are holes pre-drilled in the back for hanging, but you can also display them flat.  I own a few of them and would be elated to have more added to my collection each year!  I could browse these for an hour and still not be certain about which color I want (perhaps this is because I want ALL of them).   Also, I should say that I try to either own Etsy items myself or consult a source that does own a particular Etsy product before I recommend it.  I don’t want you to get stuck with something less than desirable that just happens to look good in a photo: trust me when I say that these are as awesome as they look in the images.

It’s always a joy to me when I can show a client or a reader something new and cool without forcing them to break the bank.  If you have some tried-and-true Etsy, or other, finds please share!
