My niece is an artist. We have some of her art in our home. It seems to fit here.

Well for literature I'd have to definitely say Shakespeare, music, it's tough, classical, Mozart, Berlioz, Puccini, other, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Doors, Genesis, Paul Simon, Gershwin, Britton, Bowie, Prince, Metallica, Sting, movies anything by Chapin, David Lean, Lawrence of Arabia, Bridge on the River Kwai, Dr. Zhivago, paintings, Van Gogh, Klee, Dali, the list goes on. I'll shut up 'cause I could keep rambling and rambling about this one!

Ah hell, more literature, Stendhal, Tolkien, Welles, Cervantes, Borges, Crichton, Baxter, Clarke, Doyle, Kirkegaard, Nietzche, Kant, Kafka, Russel, Dickens, Nabokov... okay I'll shut up now, the list goes on!

Yeah, I expected a more hardboiled, down to earth kind of taste.
Didn't thought you would be the decadence/fin de siecle/ l'art pour l'art type.

Now I would suspect you should also like artists like Gustave Moreau or Gustav Klimt.

I remember doing something like that.
I tried to draw a dove.
I failed.

My parents even have the picture framed in their living room.
