Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...
Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful
13 Islamic, -1 Impressionist, -3 Ukiyo-e, 3 Cubist, 1 Abstract and -13 Renaissance!
Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.
People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.

Halloween weekend we headed to Dallas. One of A's clients gave us tickets to the Dickies 500. While there we spent time with my friend Kandi and her adorable family. The kids were so cute in their costumes, Jordan makes an awfully sweet, I mean terrifying mummy, and Drew was a great Indy. We also visited the Dallas World Aquarium which was first rate, the Stockyards in Ft. Worth and of course the big race. It was so nice to have four days away from it all.
Back at home all the work, chores and running around is still here waiting for me. Another month has flown by and the holidays are just around the corner. Hopefully I will blog again much sooner as I have an exciting new project in the works.
