Artist Date

I bought art on my first artist's date!
It is called Four Queens by Amy VanArt Hodges. Isn't VanArt the coolest name for an artist. Originally she didn't sign Four Queens so with the help of Eight Legs Gallery I tracked her down and we met at Michaels for my own personal signing. Talk about an artist's date!
Please leave me a comment about Amy's art... I told her I would pass them onto her. BTW Amy is physically handicapped and confined to a wheelchair!

this is gorgeous!! and how totally fun to buy a piece of art on your artist date!!

i could read the word beauty on the top...so it made me think about the phrase, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

lovely colors and composition, very intriguing piece.

This piece is so striking. I immediately loved it!

p.s. Yes, you most definitely had an "Artist's date" in every sense of the word!

Thank you for posting this amazing art. I was drawn in my the somber expression, and the extra glasses, extra eyes magnified and peering way out over everything.

What does this piece say to you?

the first thing i thought was "this is gorgeous" so i second Kat's thoughts.
I love the colors...
and so much fun to support a local artist on your artist's date. (thanks for stopping by my blog today too)

oooh--the colors caught my eye immidiately! i wish i could read what looks like words at the top of the painting. the bright colors hold so much energy!

sounds like a TRUE artist's date! :) good for you--i might have been intimidated to do that (how silly is that?!). you probaby made VanArt's day!

I thought "striking" right away too. Love the bold graphic nature of it..the colors and the line quality are great! Love it!

Well, you can't get a much better Artist's Date than that! And I love the art...but what does it say at the top? I would love to know!
