I love art. And although I've shown you quite a few of my pieces (the Nicole Cohens, the Amanda Talley, the scarf) there are so many small guys that I haven't shown. So I thought it would be fun to take you on an art tour around my house.
|This is a piece I actually had to do for class and I loved the way it turned out. A hand drawn butterfly composed of scripty letters.|
|A beautiful embossed and watercolor drawing of a map of Nantucket (my happy place). This was a gift from my mom.|
|A gift from my sister. A photograph she took of graffiti in Amsterdam. I just loved it. So rough. Such perfect composition.|
|A silhouette that hangs in our guest bathroom. My grandma made this for my when I was 6 years old. When she moved out of her house last year, she found it and had it framed for me. I love it. Except... my hair???|
|A photograph I took on my first trip to Nantucket with Spencer. The lighting in this image is totally off, but we captured the most perfectly beautiful sunset in the harbor and the just blooming hydrangeas. Its just so Nantucket.|
|Long, weird story. Won't go into it. I am not usually a fan of hearts, but this has some sentimental value for me. And I love love love the texture.|
I know I've said it a million times before, but there is nothing better to me than art that has some meaning. Almost every single piece I have has some special background to it. These pieces are what really make my home, my home!
What are your most treasured pieces of art?
