Folk Art Cats

Stage Kats!

8x6in oil on canvas $100.

The annual Folk Art Market was on in Santa Fe while I was there. I am constantly amazed at the wonderful craftsmanship and intricate designs...truly first class works of art.
But, to me, even the most simple objects can bring pleasure. I cannot help but smile when I look at these two cats. Not amazing works of art that is for sure, but someone whittles them into shape and then someone else paints the colours...and along comes another artist who makes a painting of them!
I find the same comparison in painting. It isn't always the most professional, well done painting that I find appealing. There are beginning artists in the guild who can make my heart burst with delight when I look at what they have done.
Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder
