After I painted our foyer recently, I changed around some of the art. I decided to pass on hanging a gallery wall in that space again. Since the paint is fresh, I thought it would be nice to freshen up the look a little. I am enjoying the bare wall a lot. However, I had quite a few canvases that I had painted in art class and didn’t want to just put them in a closet in my craft room.
Meanwhile, there was a big, blank wall at the bottom of the basement stairs that needed some personality. The basement becomes a guest room on occasion, and I really haven’t given it the love that it deserves. With the arrival of “Little Miss” this year, it will also become a play room at times. So, I decided to turn the blank wall into a gallery for my own personal art work.
I painted that bench a few years ago, and I love the color (Annie Sloan napoleonic blue). A lot of my art has blues in it, and the colors all work so well together.
Now, I am the first to admit that my art is and probably will always be on the amateurish side. But I paid a lot of money for those art classes, and I think this is a perfect place for my accomplishments. They aren’t in a closet, but yet they aren’t out in a place for all of the world to see. Sounds like a good compromise. Don’t you think???
Thanks for stopping in.
