I was contacted by Carmen Guedez to review her art prints. I must admit that I was hesitant at first. I think art is such a personal and subjective thing. Furthermore, although I have taken a few art history courses during my college years, I definitely do not know enough to critique anyone's work. However, after checking out her website, I decided to review and host a giveaway of her work because I do like her art. I might not be an expert in the field of arts, but I do know what I like, and I find her art to be very interesting.
Carmen sent me the above 2 prints to review. I was impressed by the packaging as well as the quality of the prints. My review prints arrived in mint condition and I thought that her customer service was superb (she emailed me to let me know she had shipped out the prints as well as to make sure I was satisfied with them).
Between the construction and the unpacking of boxes, I haven't gotten the chance to frame the prints yet, but I am really looking forward to doing it because I already know exactly where I will be hanging these prints. I did opened the package to inspect the quality of these prints and of course I was also curious on how the prints look in person. I was not disappointed! If you are on a limited budget (like me), but you still want to decorate your home with beautiful art work then buying a print is a great option you might want to consider. If I had the money, I would love to buy some original painting for my home, but since that's not possible, I like having prints so that I can still enjoy looking at the art work.
