Art has a way of transporting us into something new and just as a book can take us away to new places a wonderful piece of art can fill us with stories untold. I have vivid memories of staring at art within my own home and one in particular of a family bustling around a busy dinner scene. The mother is serving dinner to her children and a horse is sticking it’s nose through a window in hopes for a bite. After looking at this art year after year I felt as if I knew those people and they were a part of our home.
Knowing that art has such an impact on a home I try to pick pieces that are peaceful, fun, and reflect the young family that lives within our walls. I have recently been introduced to Darren Gygi and his wonderful home collection for art and was thrilled when they asked if I could feature his art in my home and offer the chance to win a 9×9 print to one of you!
Many of my happiest memories as a child were spent at the lake. I grew up on a boat every Summer as my parents would often whisk us away for a day to play in the water. We would pop in some funky, wonderful music like James Taylor, Steve Miller Band, or Simon and Garfunkel. The wind would blow in my hair and the sun would leave traces of the joyous time we had with sprinkles of freckles across my nose and cheeks. It was in a boat that we bonded as a family, learned the techniques of skiing, pushed through multiple falls, and cheered each other on as we laughed through the spray of the water. I fell in love with this piece of art because it reminds me of all of those Summers that I treasure so dearly.
I love nature and the calm effect water can bring whether it is the trickling music of a creek, a calming presence of a lake, or the restless crashing of waves. I decided to put this lovely photo in my office so it can bring me a sense of calm during the crazy!
Each Darren Gygi piece of art is wonderfully crafted and beautiful in design. Each print is wrapped and ready to implement into your home on high quality giclee prints. This would make a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day and I have a discount code to offer to you all in addition to the giveaway.
