Dave and I are friends with an enormously talented artist named Elizabeth Foster. We've been looking at her art all week around the studio (we've been recording a new project for the past week and a half... hence the lack of blog posts), and we decided that we'd like some artwork of our very own.
I've been wanting to hang more art around the house but it's hard for us to spend money on things that don't necessarily serve a practical purpose. However, I'm so glad that we decided to buy these two pieces AND I love the idea of supporting a friend of ours in the process. We will enjoy these paintings for years to come and they will bring beauty and joy to our home. I suppose that's a practical purpose, right?
How many times can I say it... I love birds! These pieces were just exactly what we wanted. I picked out the big one, and Dave really liked the smaller one.
We hung the bigger one (it's about the same width as the mirror in the top photo) over the bistro table in our breakfast room, but I don't have a good shot of that. I was holding the baby and trying to get out the door, so I asked Dave if he would snap a few photos. I'm planning to take a few later so you can see the paintings in context, but we'll see what happens...
I love the victrola and the fact that there are little stars hanging from the clouds. It's so whimsical and magical. I told Dave that I now know what I want for my birthday... more Elizabeth art!
