Cheer Up California
I've been feeling a little down lately, but this bit of art made me feel a lot better when I saw it posted on That Unreliable Girl just now. It's called "Cheer Up California" and it was created by Neon Gray. Most of the art that I like gives me an immediate feeling, and the best art for me is the art that recalls this original feeling again and again, even as your understanding of it grows more nuanced. This piece was an instant pick-me-up, and just what I needed to see when I saw it. Although it's a little advertisement-like for my tastes, and maybe a little obvious, sometimes all you need is to be told that it will all work out. And a bright red balloon.
