I'm such a huge fan of folk art, are you? Well, you don't have to be a huge fan but do you like folk art? I think the reason why I'm so drawn to it (no pun intended) is because it immediately sends my mind into daydream mode and it relaxes me. I can completely get lost in these types of pictures. What type of art sends you into daydream mode?
