The Bull…

I love how anything can be art. You could frame a gum wrapper, hang it on your wall and…boom…art. No one can tell you that something you put in your house doesn’t classify as art, because there are no rules. Art is the wild west of decor. Paintings, fabrics, labels/wrappers, photographs…absolutely anything you decide is art, is art.

The same can’t be said for a lamp or a couch. Those have a specific form and function. You can’t put a bar of soap on the floor and call it a coffee table. It doesn’t work that way. But art is different. So in a sense, the boundaries that confine other things in our homes don’t apply when it comes to how we decorate our spaces.

Take this picture of a bull standing in the desert. Why do I like it? What made me say, “Oh that’s something I’d like in my house?” The answer is: I don’t know. Sometimes you just see something and it makes sense…to you…even if to no one else.

Bulls symbolize passion, transformation, virility, strength and fulfillment. I didn’t know that before I Googled it. Doesn’t matter. I saw this at a thrift shop for $0.99 and was like, “Yup. Mine.”
