Art For the Cheapskate
I wouldn't consider myself an "artsy-fartsy" kind of guy, but I find the older I get the more I enjoy and appreciate art; everything from paintings and pottery to even music. Art was never really an important part of my life when I was growing up on the farm; or at least I didn't think so at the time. I do remember some spectacular sunrises and sunsets though. I think the first "piece of art" I was ever exposed to (and I use that term loosely) was when my Great Uncle Shy painted a moose standing next to a river with mountains in the background. To this day I have no idea where that painting ended up. It was probably sold at auction like everything else when my Grandparents passed away. I do wish I had it though; I think of it often. Since that time I've found even the simplest things intrigue me, which is the reason for this blog. I ran across a pretty cool website the other day I think you might enjoy. It's called "Momentile." It's a picture-a-day photo gallery. One day it might be a cute pet, the next a closeup of an ear of corn. And you can even add your own photos. Check it out, I think you'll like it. If nothing else it's a great way to kill time while your waiting for that glorious sunrise or sunset to occur.
