Last night was the Helena Art Walk. We have never gone and I'd seen the featured artist in the newspaper, loved her work and decided I wanted to go.
I especially wanted to go and price a piece by the artist called "All My Love" which was a piece showcasing a young woman opening up herself to love. For some reason I fell deeply in love with this.
So we bundled our little family up and went to the walk. As I arrived to the store that held this artists work I immediately targeted and piece and scooted over to look for a SOLD sign or at least a price. I was shocked at the price- it was afforable and didn't blow the bank. I'd been talking about this picture since Thursday to Jeff and telling him how I wanted to go see it and then he saw how excited I was about the price and how I wouldn't shut up about it. I tend to talk and talk and talk about something I'm really excited about- bad habit.
But my Jeffy Poo bought me the picture as an early Christmas gift. I was so surprised and excited when the lady took it off the display and handed it to me telling me he bought it. I don't think I stopped smiling all night.
Here's what the picture looks like:
I see it as a fairly modern piece- something a little bit away from my normal comfort zone of family pictures and nature. Everyone I guess might have a different interpretation of the piece. I see it as a young girl full of hopes and dreams, opening herself up to the possibility of new love with innocence and unabashed emotion. I should be an art critic :p
