Office Artwork
So...I moved in to a lovely office with two completely bare walls. Of the four, one is taken up by a bookcase, and the other wall is entirely a window.

I went through my personal collection of prints and artwork wondering what might be appropriate or interesting for my new office. I have lots of unframed museum posters from around the world that don't feel right. Also, the fact is that my Mom is an artist and my Dad is an architect and even with lots of goodies from their stash, I still couldn't think of anything appropriate for my office.

Today, I discovered that there is someone in our Marketing office who will "decorate" your office for you - for a price. They come to your office, look around, discuss your preferences and document your color scheme .....

And then return with some God awful Thomas Kincaid / Painter of Light - monstrosity and call it "art".

Faced with this option, this is what I had in mind, but I don't think they'll go for it....

    You would have boobies on your wall. That's awesome.

    The boobs are a million times more appropriate than anything Thomas Kincaid: Painter of Crap has done.

    Does it bother anyone else that Kinkade calls himself the "painter of light"?
