Art on the Ave

Collecting art

Art, art, art! I’ve been trying to collect some art that wasn’t mass-produced, since “mass produced” and “art” seem contrary to me.  In place of the somewhat tilted sandy beach black and white photograph in our bedroom, the significant one and I will be seeing the lushness of a black and white
