I've had a few requests to show all of the art I have in my house. Of course, the collection is always growing, but I thought playing with Instagram's video function might be a good way to do it. Well, it probably wasn't the best choice. The audio is funky, and while I chose filters that showed the colors in the art the best, it made the wall colors totally odd, so don't judge me. ;) Also, I was trying to figure out timing, so I cut myself off a bunch.
Why, yes, that is a TARDIS cover on my iPhone. Also, I actually have tiny hands. I'm not sure why my paws look so gigantor in that reflection. The dream catcher was a gift from my brother and sister-in-law. My brother made it. The small piece is from a beautiful calendar of art by Amy Rice. The gargoyle piece was a gift from my Aunt Jan when I got my A.A. a million years ago.
I bought the rad Arches piece from Fab.com. The small watercolor of the Grand Canyon was a gift from an artist in Arcata. The swampy looking watercolor was a piece I purchased from a local artist a few years ago. The wood sculpture was a gift to Charles from his parents, and the photo of the Ruby Mountains is one of mine.
By now, my collection of BVPs shouldn't surprise you. The other art is from Amber Alexander. I love her work.
Sheila Cameron did that awesome Little Red Riding Hood piece. She's a local artist. The blue bicycle in my photo belongs to my grandparents in Montana. They're now in their mid-eighties, and they're still riding it. The other two pieces are also from local artists. One from a local illustrator and the other by my friend Joy.
Besides the Lora Zombie block prints, there's also an awesome mixed media piece that was done by an artist at the Neighborhood Center of the Arts -- an amazing program with very talented people.
My old work, blah. I love that piece that belonged to Charles' grandmother. The Etsy crows my sister gave us are awesome, as is the art piece done by my sister.
Herbst Kind did that lovely illustration I bought for Charles. The last piece of art, in which a younger version of my face resides, was done by my Aunt donnio.
Again, the audio is crappy, and the images aren't always sharp, but you get the idea of some of the art in my house. I have a couple more BVPs on their way, as well as a print that's waiting to be framed. The best part of art is how flexible it is with your design. It's so easy to swap out one piece for another to freshen up a room, and I love how interesting it makes a space feel. Our Little House is mainly art and books, and that's the way we like it.
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
