When it was all said and done we surveyed the mountains of art and realized that we have a problem. We love art. We love having art to look at, to enjoy, to ponder over time. Some of the best advice we ever took was to get real art, not prints and posters or factory made stuff. We took that advice and ran with it and well now we realize that we need to set some parameters for ourselves.
Just the tip of the iceberg
The art is a combo of stuff we have made, been given, found or collected. The pieces range in style, genre, medium, artist, technique, subject matter, etc. The only truly unifying theme is that each piece is treasured by both of us. With that said we really do need to manage our collection. We haven't acquired any new work in quite some time, but that still leaves us with a lot of art.
Our problem has become your opportunity. I have decided to start occasionally having an art giveaway on this blog in an attempt to downsize our collection. Today I am having a 2 part giveaway, this pair of highly textured paintings (careful examination will reveal that you are looking at 2 landscapes) by yours truly will be given away. Just leave a comment and you will be entered into the giveaway. For additional entries you can:
