I'd have to say my favorite work of art would be Starry Night by Van Gough. 1) Because I do not know many works of art in the literal sense and 2) because it has been on the dining room wall of my grandpa's house as long as I can remember.
Two things I've learned from writing this: 1) I need to study more art. Classic things. Historical things. For claiming to love art so much, I suppose I am not well-versed in it at all, 2) that I need to look around more -- and not just look but observe. Because I've realized, though I can vaguely recall Starry Night, I do not know it in detail in my mind, though I've walked past it perhaps a few hundred times. And I know if I were to walk past someday, and it was suddenly gone, I would miss it. I wonder how many other things are like that. 1/15/15
