I have an ongoing problem finding art for the walls of my house. The problem is that I'm lazy and finding good art requires work. But through my intrepid reporting -- aka surfing the web -- I came across a Los Angeles-based artist named Christopher Bettig and his birds. I have a bit of a thing for birds, so I purchased a painting from him. You can check out his work on his web site. It seems that most of his bird paintings have already sold, but I'm sure if you ask nicely he might go back to his studio and paint some more.
Here's the one I purchased. I'm very excited to hang it this weekend.
