I have a bad habit of buying art and never hanging it. At the moment, under the guest bed there are no fewer than 6 paintings waiting to be framed and hung. As we all know framing is an expensive endeavor and I somehow can never pull the trigger especially in the light that most of the paintings I have are under $100 from auctions and flea markets.
So the pictures sit in “art purgatory” until I either use them in a client’s home (which has happened twice now) or I gift one to a friend for a special occasion. I was afraid that the paintings I picked up at the last auction were going to suffer the same fate so I grabbed the bull by the horns. I decided that switch out the small gallery of framed fabric remnants in the music room for the large “Modern Family” piece I picked up earlier this month at the auction.
I am quite smitten with the change and think the painting is the perfect piece for the room. The colors are spot on and I love the quirky subjects – it was destined to be …or at least that is how I think of it.
One painting hung and about 15 to go…….
So tell me, what do you keep buying and not using? Jeans? Dishes? Small tropical islands? Shoot me a comment or a tweet and let me know! Okay back to homework……
