    I’ve been collecting a few favorite pieces in my You + Art profile  on Art.com since I started partnering with them this spring.  Today I’m sharing a few favorites as an art gift guide for this holiday season:

    1. Deer Wearing Gym Socks Charmaine Olivia
    2. Ballerinas Standing on Window Sill in Rehearsal Room, George Balanchine’s School of American Ballet Alfred Eisenstaedt
    3. Tenor Danel Phill
    4. Faune Blanc, c.1946 Pablo Picasso
    5. Maternite au Rideau Rouge Pablo Picasso
    6. Canyon de Chelly, Navajo Edward Curtis
    7. Vogue- August 1954 Leombruno-Bodi
    8. On the Fly  Irene Suchocki
    9. Portrait of Actress Marilyn Monroe on Patio of Her Home Alfred Eisenstaedt

     

    Have you ever given a piece of artwork as a gift? It requires a lot of thought, which is why I think it’s so special!

      I love that deer with socks- so cute and kind of festive as well.

      Yes, I have given a piece of artwork as a gift. My friend is a bike rider and I saw a beautiful watercolor of a bike in a garden. My friend told me she had it in her basement on the floor and a flood destroyed it. I was sad and thought, I guess you didn’t like it enough to be careful with it. It was expensive to frame too. I gave it from love and picked it out especially for her. We might think we know what a person will like, but in the end, we really don’t know.

        It’s true, it’s hard to know especially with art. But I know that when someone gives me something that clearly took a lot of thought and time it’s very special to me- even if it isn’t exactly what i would have wanted
