Every Day Things...

I think that the shelves on the potting bench will be held up by fancy wrought iron brackets.

That's about all that I did in mini today.

Then I got to thinking about changing the walls in the bedroom.
Since this is where I work most of the time, I decided to make it pleasant to work in. 

I have been gathering some of my paintings and sketches.  Also some things that other artists have done for me.

It's hard to see, but the black frame at the bottom left side is a quick sketch of me that a friend did when I was a freshman in college.  Just something fun.

The flamingo above it is a photo that Seth took a few years ago... I like all of his art.

The one in the black frame above the conservatory is by Roger Holt.  He was an artist based in Jerome, when I was going to college.  He passed away in 1979.  I can say that I have a painting by an artist that has had stuff in the Met in NYC, also in the UN building.  What is even more amazing is, he traded that for one of my lowly college paintings when I was about 21 years old!

There are also a lot of art prints in my collection.  If I like it I hang it! 

The thing that looks like a knot hole is just that.  I think that April brought that back from one of her hikes with Seth.
On this wall there is a bunch of French cross stitch that I did several years ago.  There are a couple of mirrors, some scissors and a framed photo of Amare when he was only a month or two old. 

I am not done yet.  I like looking at these things and I can't when they are hidden away. 

At the rate I am going, I am going to have my very own art gallery. 

It might not last, but it is fun while it's here.

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.

Thank you for sharing that. I have a few pieces by artist friends that I should have framed and hang them on my walls. And some of my own work too. I mean, why not? I am proud of a few things that I've done throughout the years.

Wendy, I am hoping to start a revolution. I think that far to many of us tend to hide our work away. Maybe if everyone that has art hidden away would get their art out and hang it, comments made would encourage us to do more! There is an artist of some sort in all of us.
