Bought Some Art

So I just purchased my first couple of pieces of bona-fide, real art. I guess I’ve purchased signed photos from artists before, but this is original oil on canvas stuff. Two toy robots. (Haters keep to yourselves.) Robots are pretty cool in my book.* Oddly enough I’ll occasionally look for robot art but I rarely do anything but look. This time I decided to pull the trigger. Now I have some actual art.  (Oh, I have some original poster art all the way from my hometown in California, but I’m not sure that counts…but it’s nonetheless matted and framed.)

I ran across the artist doing a Google search for “robot oil paintings.” (I know, who would’ve thought?) The artist is Linda Apple from Ohio and her work can be found here. She was pretty cool to work with as one of the pieces was up for auction on eBay and she pulled it and allowed me to purchase both of her robot pieces at a two-fer price.

My plan is to use these two pieces in conjunction with another piece of artwork I’m looking for. Stay tuned for the details (I know you won’t be able to sleep at night). Just one of many ongoing projects…like my always half-done kitchen.

* Note: I re-embraced my inner-geek many years ago as an adult.  I pretty much grew up a geeky kid but then squelched that inclination during my latter young adult and college years when I figured I was supposed to be cool.  Later as a more secure adult I determined I could easily blend the cool with the geek into a hybrid super cool geek.  Obviously it’s working.

    So what’s the plan? Framing them or going with the canvas only? Where will you hang them?
