... there's no time to grow up...

I’ll be the first one to admit that I know not much about art, even though I own an awful lot of books about it. Theory and history about it bore me to death, and yeah, I do know a bit more about the styles that interest me, but most of the time I just go by “Ooooh! Pretty!” or “Uhm, no thanks” when it comes to me and art or architecture.

Now, Alfons Mucha… he gets an “Oooh! Pretty!!!” out of me every single time I look at his pictures. I’m a big fan of Art Nouveau in general, maybe because it’s filled with fairies and fantasy and organic shapes and all, but Mucha? Yeah, he was one of the big names in the Art Nouveau movement for a reason. His paintings are just so insanely pretty that I fail to come up with the right words to describe the sheer pleasure looking at them invokes in me. Let’s just say they make me happy. :)
