Sayre, from Sayre Smiles, is hosing Fun Monday this week. Our instructions were:
Your assignment for Monday, 9/17 is this:
"Brush off your interview skills. Talk to everyone who lives in your house. I want to know what their, and your, favorite piece of art is in your home. Photographs do not count. If there was a fire in your home, everyone would grab photographs, but what is the non-photographic piece of art you would grab on your way out - and why? (Edit: These don't have to be paintings - these can be wall hangings, statues, lumps of clay by your child, anything that is artistic expression of some kind EXCEPT photographs.)"
Well, to be perfectly honest, we do not own art. My art is photography and scrapbooking (which includes photographs). This is the only ART we have that we/I have.
I have several sketches friends have given me. My mother has also drawn sketches that I honestly consider them absolutely priceless. One is a sketch of my childhood home. Sketches of antique farm equipment and a barn. Sketches, by my mother, myself and friends, drawn on notebook paper collected in a folder in our bedroom. However, they're all "pictures".
When I asked the only other person in my home, my husband, what art he would rescue, he said our picture CD's, my scrapbooks and my "sketch" folder would be in his hands.
We're kinda of boring, I guess, but our ART is all pictures. We may not own Picasso's or Van Gough's, but, the "art" we have is priceless to us.
