Here is a mini collection of art & quotes from my favorite artist, the Surrealist genius, Salvador Dali. If he were still alive, I would befriend him. I can just picture us sipping red wine and cognac in Madrid… bouncing from bar to bar, laughing and fighting over politics, women, and of course, art. Oh, don’t burst my bubble! A girl can dream!

Dali and I would be the best of friends. He was a mad genius and I’m no genius but I’m mad so that makes us compatible right?!

I find such great pleasure in viewing his, what some would call, grotesque art. What do you think of Dali’s art?

“Give me two hours a day of activity, and I’ll take the other twenty-two in dreams.”
Dalí
