My dad gave me $40.00 for my birthday (thanks, Dad!) this year and I tucked it away until I found something I really wanted. K has a 15 year-old friend named Ryan who is an artist. He recently participated in an art show at a local nature reserve and we went to show our support. As soon as I saw this painting, I knew I wanted it and just where it should hang. I think it’s definitely a great birthday present. I love the blues and have been trying to incorporate more of that color into our home. It’s a nice contrast to all the orange I have going on and I believe it complements the other pieces we already have.
I think it’s a nice addition and it made me feel good to support Ryan. I told my dad what I’d bought and he was very pleased to have a hand in supporting a talented young person as well, which we both feel is very important. Plus, I get to see my present every time we have dinner!
Have you bought any new art lately or been busy creating some? Let me know.
