verucas_chaos: (Van Gogh's Boots)
Yesterday's post got me thinking about art. I am not an afficianado, but there are artists and pieces of art that have always fascinated me. I love Andy Warhol. I kind of like Monet, but not to the degree others do. Picasso fascinates me. Dali confuses me, but I think his work is really cool most of the time. DaVinci is...well, he's DaVinci and his work is amazing.

Van Gogh is my spiritual art match. I will always stop and look at his painting if they are on a book, magazine or notecards. I've always wanted to know more about him. The art that I looked at most in Paris was his. Since I never took an art class and never had a reason to do research on him or any other artist, I feel like I may have missed out on some secret shared knowledge about the world of art. Columbus has a decent art museum, but that's all it is...decent. I think if I had grown up in the city I might have taken an interst in some art form and might have developed any talent in that area that I could.

My INFJ-ness makes me a prime candidate to be an art historian or museum curator. How cool would that be?

So here is a poll and a quizzie thing that made me smile (although the quiz itself had some odd questions)...
[Poll #1339268]
