Wild Western Collection

Welcome to the Wild-Wild-Western Collection!

 The Old West! The place of cowboys, indians, and tumbleweeds! Get out your boots with the  fur spurs folks, ‘cause it’s about to be a showdown! Take 10 paces and get ready to draw! Let’s be a little more creative here though, instead of drawing guns let me draw you a mental picture aided by actual pictures.

 

Western art has many inspirations, you’ll know this if you’ve ever traveled out to The Old West! Many signature elements of western art are turquoise, and edgy patterns, they’re contrasted with oranges, reds, and beige’s. Of course some of the main subjects in the Western Style are the famous Cowboys, and Indians (Native Americans is more accurate). Many of the images seen are of significant battles for territory, and resources. There are several different ways in which these subjects are portrayed, and it’s all up to the viewers’ interpretation.

 

 

The History of the West:

So, before we climb into the Western Decor Wagon let us take a moment to appreciate the birth of the West. The expansion of the west started with an idea that spread throughout the Colonies in the 19th Century. John O’Sullivan, who was a Newspaper editor at the time, coined a term that represented a common idea. This term was: Manifest Destiny. The idea at the time was that it was our right as Americans to expand the colonies by moving…West. There was a sense of adventure, excitement, and even religious undertones. The idea evolved from person to person, some believed that it was a God given right, and whatever lay out in the wild west it was their duty to convert and promote God’s word. Others believed it was more of a duty to our country, and would also show that we were becoming more stabilized. It was a means of showing America’s progress. To keep a long story short and not take up too much time, we did expand and The West is History! (The rest is history! Get it?) Hahah!

Romance Through the Ages

Love is in the air!

Ah yes! It’s a fresh new start to the year, things have started to settle down, and February is slowly creeping onward. The florists are prepping, the jewelers are polishing up their finest, and the chocolatiers are whipping up their best creations. Everyone is getting ready for the most lovable holiday of the year. Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us, are you ready? We are! So here’s a special love letter to you!

 

Dear Art Enthusiasts,

I’m sure most of us have had a few mixed emotions about this holiday. But, no need to get huffy! What we can tell you is that love is in the air, and Romance has been around through the ages. Whether you’re single and looking (or not), taken, or even married for years that you stopped counting; Romance will last through the ages.

 

 

For those of you singletons, don’t sweat it! One of the great things about love (that is commonly overlooked on the dreaded V-day) is you don’t have to have a significant other to appreciate this day. Everyone holds different interpretations; what’s yours? Years can pass by, and you won’t always have a date, but don’t take this as an offense. Love yourself. Respect yourself. Take a moment to remember that there’s always platonic love, and there’s nothing like love from your guardians. Take time to remember those that put in the effort to raise you, and help guide you into who you’ve become today. Valentine’s Day isn’t just about being single, or taken, it’s about respect for yourself and for others. Maybe you love your pet, your job, your hobby; whatever love you have embrace it! Celebrate it!

Let’s take a look at some interesting art from the days of yore all about romance, from our Collection. If you’re lucky, we’ll even hold your hand. But, don’t get frisky!

This cute couple shown here is a famous Impressionist Styled piece by Edouard Manet.

 

We’ve noticed many Tumblr fans would love to see Disney do an Impressionistic Movie. A fellow blogger has illustrated their interpretation below! Pretty neat right?

 

Here’s a young woman shown in elegance with a love letter and roses!

 

 

 

Sometimes you’ll see public displays of affection, love can do that to people. Like this young couple on the subway!

 

 

Or this couple from what looks like a long journey back to each other!

 

 

Here’s a couple so in love they’re dancing in the streets! Try it! Safely of course!

 

 

Robert Frost couldn’t have said it any better!

 

 

Love Always,
