Fairies. Wings, Hats, Crowns
I was reading Tumble Fish's Blog last night. It seems someone has brought up the old bullsh%$ about art with wings, hats, crowns, or caps! I think that subject has been beat to death. Either you like it or don't(just like any other art). I love it and I think that not every one can create this beautiful magical art and make it look so original. I love to see the masterpieces that Marsha creates and the original note cards in Becky's Whimsicalmusings' ETSY Store are too beautiful to send to any one ( I hoard mine instead of mailing them to friends).
When this "issue" was first discussed in Somerset Studios I wrote a letter to then editor Jenny Doh. I was shocked that the debate went on so long. I sent my letter in an envelope I had lovingly decorated with convicts with wings and hats. I'm not sure what the meaning was behind this - whether it was art can be original using wings and hats, crowns, etc. or even thugs can look precious with wings. I do know, that not all art is appreciated by all. But wouldn't it be nice for people to not be critical of art they don't prefer or maybe don't understand.
My envelope was published in the Somerset Studio letters to the editor but my words weren't.
