We all know about spring cleaning. Have you ever thought about broadening the definition away from windowsills and bureau drawers to other aspects of your life? How about your art collection? In our home, we collect art that moves us. But that doesn’t mean we always have to room to display it. One technique I’ve developed over the years is to rotate. A few times a year (generally when the seasons change) I like to “Replenish” my walls of art with fresh goods. Whether I pull from already owned pieces or add to our collection, I find that my art lives most when it gets used. For us, this means rotating out some of the old, replacing with the new. Then, next season, doing it all over again. (This might just be justification for the constant purchase of new art. Potatoes, po-tah-toes.)
Heather McCaw has a knack; a knack for capturing little bits of light and magic. Her work “explores the little things in American life; the odds and ends you find in stored boxes, littering the floor beneath your child’s dresser, in your grandmother’s desk drawer.” These are the types of things I find myself looking at with open eyes and hearts; the things I find myself collecting. It only makes sense to collect art in the same vein. Personally, this “Little Green Parachute Man” is one of the most touching, achingly poignant pieces I’ve seen in a long time, although I might be biased with a six month old baby boy sitting next to me right now. Find art that moves you, surround yourself with it. Replenish your stash. Start with Heather McCaw.
