Colorful artwork can do more than simply brighten a home — it can brighten your mood as well! Whether your taste gravitates toward precise geometry or diffused color fields, whether you prefer the warmth of orange and red or the cool drama of blue and green, and whether you’re a fan of photography or painting, let Fabulous Frames & Art help infuse your environment with a dose of saturated color!


Above is a most unusual photographic print by Robert Buelteman, which is the result of a laborious process in which the flowers are whittled down into translucence and momentarily electrified, Buelteman’s camera capturing the resulting glow. For more information about this unique process, check out the Wired Magazine article “Force of Nature: Artist Puts Petal to the Metal for Electrifying Images.”

These limited-edition floral serigraphs by Cincinnati-based artist Brett Harper combine strong, simple colors with loose and gestural linework:

Photographer Rebecca Tolk makes her home in Asheville, North Carolina, where she uses a Holga camera to capture incredible hues and light effects without the aid of any digital manipulation. This particular photograph has been printed on bamboo, a renewable resource with a subtle texture that perfectly complements this image of flowers, and which can be displayed without glass:
