Over the past few years, I’ve started to collect original works of art. They are all very small pieces, but I’m so happy to own something that is unique and really fills me with joy.
My husband and I sadly don’t share a lot of overlapping taste in art, so that’s why I’ve been keeping it small. With smaller pieces, I can gather them around my laptop at my desk, where I can look to them for inspiration, or peace, or just a small moment of happiness while I’m working or writing.
I thought I’d feature a few of them here in the blog because there’s a strange synergy between visuals, and music, and writing. When I look at my favourite pieces of art, it’s like all the things I love about my favourite songs and my favourite stories in visual form. I guess by this point in life I’m a bit of a Known Entity – I like what I like!
Here’s my latest piece – it just arrived in the mail last week and it’s now hanging directly over my computer. It’s called Here Comes the Sun and it’s by Newmarket artist Josee Savaria:
It’s just 8 inches square, but that picture doesn’t do justice to the colours squeezed in there. It’s a riot of patterns, colour, secrets, and joy. It makes me want to write something that matches. Hope you love it too!
