I Love My Husband and My Art

Posted on March 22, 2008 @ 10:25 am

Much to my husband’s chagrin, I have a real love for art and our walls cannot handle too much more of my passion. I have to admit that I own very few originals, but I like the prints, nonetheless. I have some great pieces and I am proud of every one of them. But then, my husband knew this about me before he asked me to marry him.

I recently fell in love with a newer artist and I cannot get enough of his work. The name he goes by is Banksy and he started out as a graffiti artist. He has come a long way and I think he is wonderful. He just seems to really get today’s world and some of his stuff could be considered controversial.

For my birthday, when my husband enquired as to what I would like, I said I really wanted to buy Banksy art. He basically rolled his eyes at me, but I know that he will come through. In the end he always does, and though he won’t admit it, I think this is one of those things he loves about me.
