The Gift of Art ...

Art, in all kinds, almost always makes my heart sing ... well except for a show called "Evisceration" that was at the local gallery a couple of years ago ... okay, but Art really is a fabulous thing to share.

Got to love this art ... a fabulously large cat painted on the back of a truck ...

We ended up going though about a dozen green lights so i finally snapped these photos while driving, (shhhh, don't tell my mom, and Mom, if you are reading this, close your eyes!)   There was virtually no traffic and the truck didn't move that fast ...
I love the art ... how fabulous that they are sharing their art with everyone!

I have been fortunate to see the Cone Sisters exhibit twice, once with my friend Izzy and once with Diane ... what a fabulous show ...
Due to a series of fortunate events, Diane presented me with this fabulous Matisse print that I had been drooling over ...

A while back, my dear blog friend Lynn, sent me this amazing OOAK necklace for my birthday,  made from vintage findings and metals ...

I had to include two shots of this piece because I just couldn't get the detail and beauty of it captured in one shot ... this is a totally fabulous necklace!

And if that wasn't enough, Lynn did a portrait of my dear Honey... I can't wait to get this charcoal framed ... it is far more fabulous irl, my point and shoot does not do it justice.  

The gift of art, weather it is a randomly place bit of street art, a gallery showing or an actual piece always rocks my world ... there is so much art and beauty in the world and it is just a fabulous thing to share with all.

thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a beautiful week!
