In the Eye of the Beholder

I love art. Kev and I have lots of art, even though we only have one room in which we can hang it. The art that doesn't fit is stuffed in a closet, waiting for us to live in a house with non-cinder block walls.

Regardless of the limitations in my current apartment, I am always looking for more art. Even if I don't buy it. I just like to have a list.

Such as this: (titles and artists follow image)

World Landmark, Paris by Paul Gibson

Water Lilies, by Claude Monet

The Dance of Youth, by Pablo Picasso

Les Coquelicots, by Claude Monet

Impression, Sunrise (blue), by Claude Monet

Female Head, by Leonardo da Vinci

Face Dove, by Pablo Picasso

Eiffel Tower at Night

Colombe avec Fleurs, by Pablo Picasso

Le Champs Elysees at Night, by Van Miller

Blueberry Barrens, Maine, by Julie Eggers

Almond Branches in Bloom, by Vincent van Gogh

I also found myself searching for beautiful art from Utah, Maine, Colorado and California. All places I have been. So I looked through my own archives and realized that if I wasn't so lazy, I could reproduce enlargements of photos Kev and I have taken and frame them to adorn our walls. It would certainly cost less than buying a stranger's art, and it would mean more.

Here are my candidates for framing:

Zion's National Park, by ME

Summer Firework, by Kevin

Cousin's Island Sunset, Maine, by ME

Fisherman's Wharf, by Kevin

Causey Dam, Utah, by ME

Maroon Bells, Colorado, by Kevin

Portland Headlight, by Kevin

Aspen, Colorado, by ME

I think they have potential. I just may get to work on one or two of these once we have a house in which to hang art.


PS All framed art was found on allposters.com. All photos are copyright Livia and/or Kevin Taylor 2008.
