Locavore: Artwork truly priced for everyone

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

skeptical-seagullOwn a piece of original art — for cheap.

Seattle artist Shawn Behling aims to make art accessible to all (even “people with paychecks as little as mine,” she says). She prices her paintings for the time she spends on them — paying herself minimum wage. She calls it Minimum Wage Art.

She uses all recycled materials, including salvaged wood and donated paint.

The pieces are generally small, cute and modern. Many feature anthropomorphized animals, such as a unicorn eating ice cream and a skeptical seagull in a hipster hat.

$6 and up at Bluebird Microcreamery (Phinney Ridge) and minimumwageart.org
