collections.. pt 3 [the art]

ART= 1. the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
2. the class of objects subject to aesthetic criteria; works of art collectively, as paintings, sculptures, or drawings: a museum of art; an art collection.

Either way, we collect a whole lot of it. We recently rearranged our whole house, and came to the conclusion we have alot of stuff. Art being one of them. We also plan to move overseas in the very near future. Dilemma. So I took the time to document a little of this art, to share joy, talent and so that wherever we move, we can still appreciate our art. Here is but a few of a babies.

{these duck were hand drawn as a gift from our friend claire for our wedding}
{this tea towel is from third draw down and was a gift from some amazing friends in melbourne}

{this was another wedding gift, the 'token wedding present' was drawn by our friend dave who also drew our newest tattoos}
{this is our newest purchase-it is a collaboration of acorn and ghostpatrol a couple of melbourne artist. I actually just got one of ghostpatrols drawings tattooed on my ribs a month ago. we bought this water colour from tiny showcase, check em out, they're amazing}

{these four are from my uncle, frank, he is an art teacher in france and has an amazing little house an hour out of paris. when I was last there in 2009 he sent me home with a few works. my favourite is the face on wood, she is so beautiful. frank is one of my favourite artists}
{our friend dubsy is about to do some amazing stuff overseas, so his housemates threw him a fundraiser. claire made some memorabilia and some decks for an auction. we ended up with these}
{the deck is some more of claire's work and the man playing guitar is some more of franks}
{my dad recently stated up at art school, he is very modest about painting, but i love his work and he inspires me to be creative}
{these are some cards we bought at finders keepers from courtney brims an very talented brisbane artist}
{kim has always wanted a painting of a ship near our bed so i brought this home from the op-shop one day. i also made the beard face}
