My Artistic Husband

After the fan re-do, I had my dresser back.  I was thrilled to be able to create symmetry again on it's cherry surface, without the unsightly tower fan throwing my chi off.  Really... it was thrown off.  Anyhoo, I found the need for something on the wall behind where the tower fan once sat.  I thought I could find an artist on etsy or ebay that had some original work at a good price.  Good grief.

Admittedly, I don't have much of an eye for abstract art.  I took Art 101 in college and can appreciate art in the general sense.  But even during my one whole semester of Art class, I never 'got' abstract art.  I didn't understand the symbolism, the color choice, the use of light and dark... I didn't get it then and I still don't.  So when I saw the prices that these unknown artists wanted for their pieces, I was floored.  Really? REALLY?  There were small pieces on ebay that were more than a car payment.  Wow.  I'm a thrifty crafty girl.  Since I'm not artistic myself, I turned to the hubster.

I knew what colors I wanted on the wall and I knew I wanted an abstract... hey, just because I don't get it doesn't mean I don't like it.  So I gave Dave some paints, a canvas, an idea, and artistic license.  I spent less than $15 for all the supplies, and I love what he came up with:

It's me.  I love how thin he made my waist.  He is artistic, so he did create symbolism... but it's lost on me and as such, explaining it to you would be futile.  Let's just appreciate that my husband loves me enough to create for me.
