New In: Art

When I was in fifth grade, our class got a new transfer student–let’s call her Brenda. One of my best friends, Erin, was instantly obsessed with Brenda because Brenda came from a school that Erin’s crush attended. Erin always wanted to hang out with Brenda to ask questions about this boy, to talk about this boy, to relay info to this boy.

I did not like this.

Erin was my friend and Brenda thought she was just gonna come in and replace me?! No. I would shoot dirty looks at Brenda, ignore her–just be an all around jackass toward her. Then one day Erin said to me, “You’re being weird about Brenda.” And ten-year-old Kristin responded, “I’m being weird?! I’m being weird?! Me?!

And then I thought, wait bitch, I am being weird. 

It was then that I became aware of my possessiveness–and, no, it hasn’t subsided. What can I say–Venus was in Scorpio when I was born. But, I have kept the crazy under lock and key since then. Mostly.

I’m having to push the crazy way down deep to share this artist with you guys.

She’s mine!

No–she’s not. Everyone should get to enjoy her work and I have to share her with you because her abstract artwork is stunning. Her name is Boriana Mihailovska. I first found out about Boriana’s art from one of Gemary’s YouTube videos. I’m also obsessed with Gemary, but that’s for another blog post!

Look at these drawings! I can’t wait to get a third one to complete this little area in my bedroom. I dare you to check out her Etsy store and not fall in love with something. But like…something else other than the ones I bought. Don’t make me shoot you dirty looks and give you the silent treatment.

Do you like these art pieces? What’s your favorite style of art? Anyone else born while Venus was in Scorpio? Let’s commiserate!

L’art

Sometimes I’m into art as decor. And sometimes I’m really into art as decor. I’m definitely going through the extreme phase right now. I want art on every wall from floor to ceiling. I’ve been able to talk myself out of such an aesthetic in my own house (for now), but I’m only able to do that because I know that I can share all of my obsessions with you. My tastes lean mostly toward the abstract and the linear. But I could be convinced to to try something different if it were the right something different. For now, let me just show you some things I know I love.
