If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. (Emily Dickinson)

So, here is something you may not know about me… I love art. I really love it, I love having it on my walls, making it, talking to artists, and unfortunately for my savings account I also like buying it. Art is an essential part of my being. I have decided I am going to try to do a post of an artist every month or so because I am guessing that most of you out there do not have enough art in your life. I thought who better to start with then the newest artist in my little mini collection…LYNN WHIPPLE. Please check out her amazing work. I am a lover of her Ninnies and mixed media. The piece that now hangs beautifully in our kitchen hallway is called “aspire” nicknamed… “Fly” and who doesn’t love a nickname. Enjoy, and cheers to Lynn Whipple XOXO!!
