Goya is one of those artists I have a kind of maybe/maybe not relationship with. On the one hand, I think that a great deal of his work is good. It makes you think, it speaks. On the other, it's nothing that I want to look at for very long. And then, this week, I was surprised by the picture of the dog--something completely different from what I expected from him. It's nice when that happens.
Here's the thing I like best about Fine Art Friday. Knowing that I need to find a piece of art that speaks to me for each Friday, I have looked at a lot more art than I ever have before. It was something that I always meant to do, but never had the time on a regular basis. By having this deadline, even though self-imposed, I have been able to read and look at things that I would have put aside 'til later. So, while it may not be an education for all of YOU to see what I happen to like during a week, it is really a wonderful thing for ME.
