The artist is America Martin and she has a policy of never copying herself, so she does not offer prints. She offers original works on paper at a lower price point and you can find her work on her website. Please tell her that you found her via Blue Tangerine Art!

Here's what 'Blue Tangerine Art' said, "This large painting of a jazz player is called 'Purple Saxophone' and is by artist America Martin. It adds a playful element to a family room - and hides the TV!" Just asking the question, how does the painting hide the TV? It stumped me as it did you two. Nevertheless, a beautiful room.

It could very well be a TVCoverUp unit where the art lifts upward . Check out my page or visit for an idea of how it works!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Put all the focus on a show-stopping piece of art above a fireplace and between built-ins, as was done in this beachy living room. The colors in the painting are repeated in the furnishings and finishes, but the subject matter and composition make it stand out on its own.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Try Some Stripes on Your Chairs
The vertical stripes on this chair match the pillow on the sofa. The stripes help the chair appear larger.More: See How to Mix Stripes With Other Patterns

Simple lines also. Top piece (thickness) is about what I would be aiming for. And, I really do like the dark mantle top with the lighter surrounding pieces. If we could do the top in the same color (or stain) as the bannisters/tops of the newel posts, that would be terrific.
