What is Art?

What is art? That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it?  Let’s rephrase it and ask “what is art to you?”.  I rarely hang anything on my wall unless it has some significance to me.  Sometimes my walls are bare for awhile until I find the right piece to live there.

I currently have this picture hanging in my house.

The significance to me is that I think they are quirky and mesmerizing.  Also the thought of having a Polish chicken hanging on the wall makes me giggle.  And I lived in Poland for a few years.  Plenty of meaning there.

I’m thinking about adding this one.  Or maybe I will change them out periodically.

Absolutely stunning in my opinion!

I also have this image hanging on my wall.

This is a picture I got off the internet.  I don’t know who it is.  It grabbed me because for some reason I can feel what she is feeling.  It’s how I feel on the inside.

I bought this painting at an antique mall.

I do not happen to feel like this on the inside but I do love the movement and the colors.

Here are some pieces that I do NOT have hanging on my walls but I really wish I did.

  1. I love things that make me feel something — I love things that are calming or peaceful or remind me of someplace or someone.

    And I have a bare space that’s driving me crazy but I can’t find the right thing for it. 🙂

  2. I like my art to have significance to me as well. I currently have a painting on my wall that I painted years ago and a picture that I took of an ant and an inch worm and had made into a canvas. It just makes me happy to look at it. 🙂

    I like the art you *do* have hanging. And I adore “Solitude.”
