Today I feel like [insert famous piece of art here]

Twitter is weird. I’ve been on it for about 7 months, and I still don’t know how I feel about it.

HOWEVER, one thing has developed on Twitter that I love.

Some of these tweets have been quite popular, but it dawned on me that my most loyal followers — the readers of my blog — may not know about this little series.

So, I thought I’d take a moment to share some of these tweets with you in hopes it will inspire YOU to see YOUR feelings in art…
