Okay, we admit it: Back in college, our walls were covered with movie and band posters. We were young! And poor! Now, we're not quite as young or poor, so we're stepping up to original works of art — which, as you can probably guess, gets pricey. Thank goodness for Etsy sellers like Portland-based Ann Whim Tseng (aka a.t. whim).

For what you might expect to pay for a print, you can actually buy an original painting in a.t. whim's Etsy shop. The acrylic piece shown above, "The Great Escape," is just $45.

We especially love the detail in this "Girl with Skinned Knee" print.

The paintings range in price from $35 to $115. Prints are $6 (4"x5") or $15 (8"x10"). At these prices, we could afford to create a mini-gallery of a.t. whim's work!
