Sometimes I wish I had that artist gene. It runs in the fam, my sister got it but it skipped me. She can literally draw or paint anything. She made a poster for me when I ran for president (of the 8th grade) that was my name in the same script as the Coca-Cola logo (ps. I won, and it was probably because of that poster). The coolest thing I have ever drawn or painted was a replica of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ – it was a total Monet. But instead of making my own art, like my sister does, or like she will hopefully do for me, I need to buy it. And you guys know I have no trouble buying things, no trouble at all.
I am attached to art with lots of colors. I love that this one, by Kristy Gammill, is neon bright but also abstract. It could go anywhere in my apartment to add a pop of color. This girl on Haight has some talent, should I commission her for a painting to hang in my house? I might steer away from the skull, but she is using all the colors of the rainbow.
