The piece that started it all…

The first original painting I ever bought was at an art festival in Palo Alto, CA. I had moved west for my first full-time job out of college in the spring of 2005 and, at the time, a friend from high school was living in neighboring Mountain View while her boyfriend was getting his PhD at Stanford (total underachiever). I’m not entirely sure what drew me to this piece – which, I assure you, will be a very common theme here – but I have held on to it as I’ve moved around the country over the past 10+ years. I remember how excited I was that it came with a real certificate of authenticity and perhaps in that moment, the Idiot Art Collector was born.
