A couple years ago I ripped a page from magazine of these incredible paintings…of cheese. Yes cheese! I had no information about these cheese paintings so I googled “cheese art” and Mike Geno’s name came up. I want all of his paintings….literally. When I went to his website I discovered that he paints donuts, bacon, and sushi too. Genius! I was so happy when Blake got me a print for my Birthaversary (we got married on my birthday…). My favorite donuts are lemon filled so he go me this one…
Once a year the Lafayette Art Association holds a fundraiser. Artists paint a bunch of 6×6 canvases, people buy tickets, each ticket gets you a painting. It’s a great way to get small, affordable pieces by great artists. Last year I was lucky to get one of Kat Crosby’s abstract pieces. I’m picky about abstracts…they have to look “right”. I have no idea what “right” is or how to explain it, but all of her paintings are amazing. I got this one…
Since her tent was next to mine at the Big Easel this year I looked at her paintings all day and decided I had to have one. I bought “Leather and Lace” a great piece with oranges and pinks…it looks amazing with my mint walls.
So yeah, my art collection is looking pretty good these days. Oh, and the two photos up there ^^, those were taken by my husband. He’s a great artist too.
