Art to Fill Empty Walls

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Every year we go to the Student Summer Art Fair and every year we kick ourselves for not getting anything. Not this year we yelled. We gave ourselves a budget and got a few really cute pieces from artists Lisa Wharton and Jane Hunt.

To go along with my bird theme in the office, we got 3 of Lisa's 5 x 5 silk screens on wood. They are fun, modern and give us good inspiration in the office.

For our bedroom, we bought one of Jane Hunt's 8 X 8 tree pieces. It's still hard for me to believe that David and I mutually agreed on a piece of art. Our conversations on art usually go a little something like this:

CG: Your art sucks, put it in the garage.
DG: Nuh huh, you have the worst taste ever.
CG: Your art isn't even good enough to be hung in our bathroom.
DG: Oh yeah, well, you buy your crap art at the TJ Maxx home store.

And so on and so on and so on.

Right now you are probably wondering if DG's art is really hanging is garage and my reply to you is YES. I'll leave the door open and you can come and get it. He'll never even know.

I think you should set up a DG art gallery in the laundry room. At least put the Iguana up in the entry way.

Thanks everyone for YOUR support. I agree. ART should be our for people to see, regardless. I was at LEAST hoping for a gallery in the laundry room. BUT JOY, i like your idea. Thanks. Christy--POOF!
