Art for the guys

When I first told my in-laws that I was going to start this blog, my father-in-law told me about how, years ago, he'd seen paintings of car hood ornaments that he regretted not buying. "Make sure you include some things like that," he said. I laughed, because it was such a specific request. But then I realized he just meant that I should include art that men like too. I assured him that I would--that I didn't intend for this blog to be limited to any particular aesthetic. 

Now, I don't believe that there's art "for men" or "for women" but in honor of my father-in-law, I've rounded up a handful of pieces that remind me of some of the guys in my life:

1. Heather Blanton Blue Cyclists Peleton [$1870]     2. Michael Fitts Paper Airplane [$1600]    
3. Jeremy Miranda Searching print [$75]     4. Stephanie Henderson Lost and Found No. 7 [$1800]

5. Pete McCutchen Stimsonite #2 [$900]     6. Sallie Robbins Fly V [$89]
7. Kathy Beynette Superheroes [price on request]     8. Jane McElvany Coonce Crab Feast [$225]

9. Robert Gilbert Great Falls Tributary [$550]     10. Eliza Southwood Rowers print [£150]
11. Maggie O'Neill Nationals Fan print [starting at $180] 

Collectors, can you think of an artist whose work reminds you of a special guy in your life?
