Art for Fun’s Sake

February 25, 2015

Nothing says my mom like a piece of goofy animal art. Also, my mom can’t walk into a gallery or boutique without buying something. She loves the act of surveying an entire store’s inventory and narrowing it down to that one piece that says, ‘it’s me, buy me, take me home.’ Things speak to her (so to speak); she usually finds something that has that certainĀ je ne sais quoi.

Today it was this guy:


A little side view so you can see those are wings (yes, wings) and not horns.


It’s heavy, ceramic, and, as you can see, blue. She fell in love with it. So it now lives under the library table in direct line of sight from the four different places she sits in the family room.
