I picked up a great piece of artwork over the weekend. It was on sale. Seriously, art on sale. What could be better?
It's a fairly small piece, just a canvas (I might frame it later), so I've been moving it around and propping it up in different spots. Still not sure where it will land, but probably in my bedroom. It's titled "A Day at the Spa." I could use one of those.

Art is such a visceral thing. Either you're drawn to a certain piece or you're not. Some people love landscapes, others favor abstracts (which I also love, by the way). For me, it's always been art with a particular subject that pulls me in time and again.

Here's some more art from around our house. See if you can detect a theme. Don't worry, it's not a test. And if it were, it would be super easy.

This was one of the first pieces of original art my husband and I purchased many years ago. I think it's titled "Old-Fashioned Girl."


A couple of years later, we picked up this feminine thinker at a local art show for a really good price.



And recently, this lovely lady came home with me from an antique mall for just $40. I love her expression -- very Peyton Place -- and her peacock blue dress. You may remember her from this post.

So, have you figured it out yet? I swear I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with that), but I keep picking artwork featuring women. At least they're not nudes. Although that would probably make my husband happy. 

Is there a particular type of art that you're drawn to?
