So Jason says to me this year that he is going to make a New Year's resolution. He wants to make 20 pieces of art. His own art. Not art for a client. Paintings? Sculptures? Whatever. As long as it is his own art.
It seems that the past few years much of the art he has made has been a gift for me. I often times get art as my gifts for holidays, birthdays, or just cause. As long as this doesn't stop, I don't care what kind of art he wants to make.
This was my Christmas gift from Jason and Mr. Cash
It is a painting they created of "our family."
The three flowers are similar to the tattoo design Jason and I created together.
The tattoo is on my arm. Jason isn't into tattoos...yet.
So I thought I want to make a resolution too. I thought and thought. Jason thought and thought for me.
And here is what I came up with....I want to become a better artist too! I know what you are thinking...let's just say I'm starting at ground zero.
Understand that I have much to work on during the year to become a better person. Jason suggested some things like spend less money on clothes (gasp!) and work in the garden (many times I'm the one taking the photos...not really doing the digging)- both good ideas, but I couldn't commit to too much. Ha.
Note: My art will consist of an ongoing list of "things I'd like to sew." I'm trying for 20 pieces too. I guess that would be my kind of art.
I mean, I can be an artist too! Right?
Doesn't this look like some of those Etsy profile pictures? And they are artists!
Photo notes: The glasses I got from Keith's get-rid-of pile and the art is Jason's.
I. know. If I'm going to be an artist, I better work on my originality.
Right now I'm resorting to using other peoples things to try to look artsy. *Remember ground zero*
Likely we were inspired by a holiday party we had with some friends.
We called it, Humorous Handmade Holiday.
Party goers were to bring a humorous handmade gift. Then we did the dirty Santa game and exchanged gifts.
Jason did a painting of a gnome peeing on a flower. Wish I had a picture to show, but I would need some sort of censor to cover certain areas of the gnome-wink, wink. It was the first to be out of the game (exchanged 3 times-froze it in time).
I made this super quick handbag
Yep, it is a douchebag. Sorry but it is funny!
Hand stitched. Recycled material. Does that make it hipster artsy?
A couple of people made these great Christmas vest.
And this was the gift I received during the exchange.
See that's ART.
So..I should be able to make art...right?
And just so you know, Mr. Cash is a great artist...I hope to be as good as him some day.
