Friday fine (art)

I'm really digging the art of Holly Farrell for her simple and delicate paintings of ordinary objects.  The objects she paints (chairs, books, dolls, furniture) are familiar enough for the viewer to apply their own narrative or memory to the painting.  I love that.

One of my goals for this year is to support more artists by purchasing prints or originals of their work.  If I had the moola I would totally buy this couch painting because it takes me back to my college days.  This couch looks EXACTLY like the one my best roommates and I had junior and senior year in college.  AHhhh, it makes me happy.
