You don't have to be the artistic type to have an appreciation for art. Art is what it is just because it speaks to the soul. Have you ever seen a photo and just said "Wow"? Well art is like that. You can love it. You can hate it. But the fact that it issues any response is considered a good thing.
I like a lot of different types of art, but I don't really care for the classics. Like "The Mona Lisa". It's suppose to be a masterpiece, but it just doesn't do a thing for me. I actually saw it at the Louvre in Paris. It was surrounded by guards and you really couldn't get that close to it. It was much smaller than I expected. My initial response was "all the hoopla, over that!?! On the flip side, when I went to see the Arc de Triomphe (my #1 reason for going to Paris), my mouth fell open in awe. I walked around it. and under it, as traffic would allow. It's like an overpass that traffic travels under down on Champs Elysee. It was huge! Never seen anything like it! Now that was art. To me.
So I realize I don't have the right to say what is art in someone else eye's. Only my own. In that aspect anything could be art. That is the best thing about art. It will always depend on whether the viewer sees it as art. I'm by no means a pro at art, but I'm one who would question whether anyone has the right to call themselves an art expert. LOL! (Always bucking the system, I am!)
So without further ado (isn't that French?) here are some awesome photography artists that I have recently had the pleasure of rubbing elbows with! They are members of the TreasureMe Team on Etsy and I really love their work. For the fun of it, I'll give a one word description of each piece and we can compare notes.

Such wonderful fine art photography. I have several favorites with each of these great artist, so I have a very hard time NOT using them over and over in my treasuries. Their work has the ability to set the whole tone for my treasuries, so I feel they are lacking without them. Anyway, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
