  37. show me what's on your walls!
  38. and if they're empty, I can recommend a few good places to buy original art (not digital prints) to start supporting rad artists' analog work.
  39. FYI I have some original paintings for sale at and on my shop
    Etsy is a great way to find art on a particular theme or motif. Beware most of what's sold on Etsy are digital prints (not originals) so read carefully!
  40. I hope this list inspires someone out there to start thinking of their walls as a gallery they're curating!
