“Sometimes it’s so hard to love art so much and not have a single artistic bone in your body.” That’s what my art history professor said to us on our first day of class this semester and I couldn’t agree more!!
I suppose you could consider me somewhat of an artist, although my talents have always been in the performing arts-dance area, but I find myself wishing more often then not, that I could draw, paint, do graphic design or something of the sort. I spend so much time studying art, looking at art, and admiring art that it seems only natural to wish that I could create it myself.
Andy and his brothers are all artistically talented. I’ve seen some of the things they’ve done and I was pretty impressed. About a year ago, Andy bought some art supplies so that he could take it up again, but to this day they are still sitting in the closet unopened. Every time I see them, I wish I had the ability to put them to use and create something awesome to hang in our home.
But since I can’t draw worth a lick, I can still admire the work of others. I’ve slowly begun a small art collection by grabbing a few things I like off of Etsy and I’d like to continue expanding that collection. There’s so many great pieces out there!
I thought I’d just feature a couple of my favorites for now:
Snowy Owl by Alberto Cerriteno
Gorgeous, isn’t it? Always a sucker for the owls.
Rock and Roll by Dirk Fowler
I love that it’s called ‘Rock and Roll.’ Don’t the wheels look like records?
Pistachio Ice Cream by Vanessa Tran
I’m not sure what it is about that print, but I keep coming back to it.
Bonnie by Caia Koopman
And I love when I find something that not only appeals to my eye but that I can relate to. I love that this piece reminds me of myself.
It’s almost all I can do to keep from snatching up every piece of art that I come across and love. I have to practice some serious self control!
Are you an art lover or is there something else you can’t resist?
