Does life imitate art, or does art imitate life?

Art is very unappreciated and underrated in today’s time. Art is all around us, but most of the time we are too busy to look for it. Instead of appreciating the art around us, we are too involved in other aspects of our life, like social media. So, Jaylynn and I took the time to look at amazing art and truly appreciate it. We spent hours searching out different genres of art and found different categories from classic art, modern art, and even today’s pop albums. Trying to recreate these masters pieces was an honor and truly something we had a lot of fun doing. We took the time to try and remake the pictures that we found. Although we couldn’t fully channel the same energy of the original art pieces brought to the table, we hope you enjoy these lovely pictures of art we recreated and our interpretations.
