Too much? This wall does not stand alone. In addition to these, I counted 10 more pieces in the room. And one painting is the size of a smart car. (I would take a picture but I'm not the strongest housekeeper)
I once had a friend over who exclaimed "Ann , Enough with the art!" What?! It was like the first time you get called Ma'am by a teenager and you realize to them you are old and yes ma'am is an appropriate response in their minds. After she left, I questioned myself, do I have too much art?
But I realized I do this professionally and my taste or passions do not have to line up with everyone elses. I also have a background in art- so of course art is going to be a huge part of my home. So I decided she was way wrong and can you really have too much of something you love?
So I felt no guilt when Hooper and I did an out of town shop and I came across this:
This is the 10th print of 21 by an artist done in 1974. On the bottom it read 10/21 '74. Ok, so here is the cool thing: My birthday is October 21, 1974. (10/21/74) And yes... quick math I am almost 40. The best part, Hooper bought it for me for my birthday. I am not good at surprises so I got it early and of course added it to my collection.
So what do you think? Too much, just enough, I need more?
Does anyone else have 24 things hanging in one room? ...-A
Bye, bye birdie,
