Even More Art!

really have a problem with art. As in it’s hard for me not to buy things I like when I see them. Much to the dismay of my bank account. 

I honestly have no idea where I got this from, other than there are several artistic people in my family. But it isn’t like we had tons of art on walls when I was growing up or anything. We had the same watercolors and prints on the same walls for my entire childhood.

Except the macramé stuff. That came down eventually.

This weekend was “Art a Whirl” in Minneapolis– which is basically a giant, sprawl of an art crawl which shows the wares of all the local artists. It was all over the Arts District in NE Minneapolis, which was recently rated one of the best art scenes in the country. 

Anyway, I saw lots of cool things and discovered some new artists that I quite like. But I also saw my favorite local artist– and ended up buying something.  It’s called “Teaspoon Tempest”.

 

He does a lot of this type of “moderate” surrealism which plays right into what I enjoy from a subject/whimsy standpoint.  I also think his work has an element of Magritte to it.

Here are some zoomed in pics so you can see the detail-

   

 

I love the light and shadow interplay of the stormy day, the light flare on the boat’s hull, the details in the waves, the reflections in the spoon…. Gah!!

Here it is, taking center stage on my gallery wall. It should probably be by itself, but for now it’s here. 

 

Yeah, I have a problem.  And it’s more than just not enough wall space.

    Work = paycheck. Paycheck pays monthly bills with some funds left over. A portion of the funds left over get invested for retirement and into an emergency savings account. A portion is used for fun. Buying art is fun. However, you need money to buy art, so you work, because work = paycheck………

    I think you need one piece below the air duct to complete the salon style look.
