J Austin Ryan is an online gallery featuring all kinds of original work from artist Marnie Vollenhals but it’s her boys art that really makes an impression. Standouts: Her whimsical monkeys skateboarding, a richly colored train car canvas for traditionalists, and the limited edition Rocket Dog painting. Everything is hand-painted (not printed) and most fall into the very reasonable $100 range.
If you can manage to stay clear of fluffy bunnies and duckies in those early hormonal, postpartum days, congratulations – you may end up with artwork that your son could live with for a good, long time. –Liz
