Are you ready to change up the look of one (or more) of the rooms in your home?  The cheapest changes to make aren’t furniture, but instead paint and decor.  I would normally not consider artwork in our budget, but a fellow Southerner is offering us all a great discount right now on abstract art.

Carmen Guedez is an artist from Raleigh, NC and she paints full time in her studio.  Her artwork has been sold around the world and featured in many important museums and galleries, including: the North Carolina Museum of Art, United Arts Council, Visual Art Exchange, and more.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Carmen is even offering 75% off original paintings (excluding sale items, cards, and prints) when you sign up for her newsletter.  You also get FREE shipping on any order.  Some of these paintings are very large, so free shipping is huge!

This offer expires 2/17/12, so treat yourself (or a friend)!

The Giveaway:

Carmen is giving one of her beautiful paintings to one Southern Savers reader.  It’s called “Red Poppies” and is shown in the pictures above (valued at $1349).  Get ready to make some room in your home for this 48”W x 24”H painting!
