Aloha, friends!

Our time on Maui is winding down. We'll be hopping on plane on Sunday while my parents stay for an additional week with my brother. I've done lots of reading, tanning, hiking, running (amazingly, I've kept up with my training schedule, although 11 miles tomorrow might be pushing it), and have probably eaten my weight in pineapple. 

I hope you have enjoyed the wedding posts - there are 2 more queued up for you and then I should be back to normal posting by Tuesday at the latest.

To tide you over until then,
20x200 is an incredible project dedicated to getting art to the masses. Here's a bit of their story:

As we see it, there are a lot of people out there who want to sell their art and a lot of people who'd like to buy it. They just have a hard time finding each other. The internet is the perfect place to bring those people together, and we're exactly the right people to make it happen. We're passionate about art and the internet at 20x200. We're really excited about creating a place where almost any art lover can be an art collector.
We introduce at least two new editions a week: one photo and one work on paper. Most are available in three or four sizes. When we first launched, the smallest size was reprinted in the largest batch — an edition of 200 — and sold at the lowest price — $20. Hence the name 20x200.
As art lovers, Brian and I have a really hard time filling our little apartment with pieces that we love that do not make us go completely broke. I am really excited to explore this site more. Here are a few pieces that have really spoken to me already:

What is your favorite type of art?
I am obviously partial to photography. Brian is a big impressionism fan.
