Make time to explore the wonderful collection of work by artist Gary Lee Shaffer on the Lost Art Salon website. His uplifting expressionism is characteristically bold and colorful, like this pastel completed in the 1960s.
Making it work: Use unexpected art to add an element of surprise in your home. This piece would look wonderful in any room, and would be especially eye-catching if paired with more traditional decor. Try it over a nightstand, an end table or in a powder room.
