Last week when I published a blog post about our new dining room chairs, something looked “off” to me in the photos, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I just knew something wasn’t right. Then I read this post by Mary Ann, which we featured on Saturday. I knew immediately what I had done wrong and what needed to be corrected.
Can you see the problem?
Can you see the change I made???? Right. I lowered the art and/or added some more. In the first photo you can see that the art needed to be lower.
Instead of lowering it, I shifted one painting and added another. In this little reading corner in the great room, I added another painting under the top one. By the way, those two are my latest paintings that I haven’t shown you.
In this space between the two doorways, I added a small oil painting that used to hang on the other wall. It fits this space much better. It is off-center because of the darn light switch. I am pleased to say that since I followed my own suggestions, the silver didn’t have to be polished for this photo because it was already looking great. You can read about my cherry painting here. I bought the small oil painting from my art teacher who painted in on a trip to Ireland.
I think everything looks much better now.
Here’s a close-up of a still life I did. First, I created a vignette and took a photo of it. I then followed the photo for my painting. It was really fun to paint this one. I feel as if I have started creating my own style, which I am calling loosey-goosey. It looks a little washed out in this photo. It is really bright.
This is another one that is very whimsical. I like it a lot, too. However, I think my art teacher isn’t so sure.
So, there you have it – my latest tweaks in the great room and my latest art. I hope you enjoyed them. Thanks for stopping in.
