One of my prized possessions is an oil painting that an old boyfriend painted for me. It’s a replica of a painting that was on the cover of Somerset Maugham’s The Moon and Sixpence. I’m not sure what drew me towards that painting, the haunted expression of the man or the colors. I’ve noticed more and more vintage portraits in interior design shoots. Who knew all those old garage sale oil paintings would come back into fashion.

If you’re interested in owning a vintage portrait, sometimes good ones pop up on Etsy.
