Art Fart

I’m not a particularly “artistic” person in the traditional sense.  I can put paintbrush to canvas and manage to look like I’ve graduated elementary school.  I can even sketch a half way decent body form for fashion illustrations, but thus far that is about the extent of my traditionally artistic skills.  With that being said, I consider myself quite creative in a variety of ways and most importantly, I have an appreciation of all things beautiful!  Of course what qualifies as beautiful is up to the beholder and I do have a vaguely eclectic taste when it comes to art.  I fancy myself a bit of an amateur collector with no real education on the matter.  So far I’ve got some great thrift store finds and a couple of pieces that have been gifted.  But right now, I’m really crushing on Art Deco prints and galactic photos!!  Peep a few that are on the top of my wish list:

Trippy!  This is a costume sketch for a ballet…I think he’s supposed to be Vishnu, a Hindu God

Just to further validate my lust for the galactic shots…my most recent tattoo is of the Aquarius constellation.  I’m so fascinated by the night sky.

Can this be true?!  Unfathomably beautiful…

I’ve put a few memos out to loved ones about these illustrations and pictures, so maybe around Christmas time I’ll be sharing a photo of one of these little treasures hanging on my wall.

And last but not least a few shots from my life that I love…
