… I feel like I want to be surrounded by it all.
It’s a constant battle trying to find the right balance between not weighing yourself down with too much ‘stuff’, wishing to support the wonderful work of so many talented artists, and also the desire to be surrounded by beautiful things … I suspect it’s a battle that I’m not yet winning … and for the moment at least, I think I’m OK with that.
Continuing on with my art diversion this week, I know I’ve already told you about my love of Kurt Halsey’s work … and look, he has released a lovely little mini-book based around the theme of love … awww! (he’s also recently released the second title in his mini-book series, but let’s pretend I don’t actually know about that shall we?).
His work is joyful and sweet, and sits on just the right side of ‘cute’ … Best of all though, I like that if I look at his art in just the right way, I can see echoes of myself in some of the characters he creates. That always feels very special, and perhaps that’s part of the reason why I love it so.
How about you? Do you struggle with that appreciation vs ownership battle too?
