ARTsy wednesday

Two saturdays ago we did the ART walk in the design district and had a great time!

There were tons of people out, live music on the streets, lots (and I mean LOTS) of amazing art everywhere, it was a wonderful evening spent with Will, Lily and uncle Darren.

At one of the galleries, I was introduced to Charles Pfahl‘s work.

Charles‘s art is not typically something that I would be attracted to (I tend to like pretty art, the world can be an ugly place as is) however, days after seeing his works, I still couldn’t get it out of my head. (that’s what good art is supposed to do, right?)

His painting Archetype still haunts me.

As an artist I envied its size, its detail, its muted colors.

As a mother, I was not emotionally prepared to stand before it. I literally shed tears as I stood there.

It’s not every day that art affects me like that.

All those heavy feelings just came back to me all over again.

Let me bring it back to the light and fun side with some pictures from that night.
