My Favorite Art From Society 6
Welcome to the blog, and Happy Admin Professionals Day!
“Evil things wear the prettiest masks.”― Alistair Cross
Hello friends …it’s the middle of the week and it’s a beautiful day to have a beautiful day. I’m feeling so sluggish this week even though I’m ticking all the boxes and keeping up with chores and tasks, I just feel tired, like I’m moving through molasses. I’m trying to remedy that with yoga and healthy energy shots.
This week I’ve been binging Euphoria (Yes I’m the last one on the planet to have seen it), Scream 6 and I’ve finished a book, Wilder Girls from the library and I’ve started The Verifiers. (I’m on a roll)
Earlier this month I posted about “Free Domain” art which I love and still use, but there are some other great paid stores for art. Society 6 has become that spot for unique pieces from new or up-and-coming artists.
What is Society 6?
They are an open, global community of 450,000+ independent artists from 170+ countries, and they value original artwork from creators of all kinds—from painters to illustrators to photographers to pattern designers and everything in between. Society 6 empowers creativity around the world—because each purchase pays an artist.
My Past Purchases
If I had it my way, my wall would be completely covered in art, but I realize that’s not practical and my style is all over the place. I only have a few pieces on my walls but my wish list has at least 50 prints.
Harlem Girl by Winold Rice
Scary Puppets by E.L. Briscoe / Backstory: While this art isn’t original from the artist it’s a fantastic replica of the puppets featured in the 1978 version of The Wiz Movie.
Napping Ginger Cat in Pink Jungle Garden by Lara Lee Meintjes
Roots by Frank Moth
Your Style or Flavor
The possibilities are endless depending on what theme or style you’re looking for, or if you just want a collective mix. I think my theme (without really trying) is cats. I have a total of 5 cat prints and this includes my portraits of Maximus and Trinity.

If you don’t have the budget to pay for art, check out a few of these sites for free art. It does require a bit of searching but if you’re in the mood to browse there are thousands of free art images.
