365 Day 126

framed 18 pieces of art -- hung 7 -- moved 3


Juana and I had a great time yesterday shopping and playing Magic: the Gathering...but in between those things Juana helped me measure and figure out framing for a few pieces of art I have been longing to hang up. I have a large box of unframed art -- some of it over 10 years old. I can rarely afford to frame something when I buy it, so it goes in the "someday" box. I have been nickel-and-diming my tax refund and with the nearly end of it we managed to stretch it as far as possible, framing up a total of 18 pieces of art that have been waiting to see the light of day...concentrating on William Hessian, Kettle and Gus Fink.

Today I have been assembling the elements and hanging the artwork.

I also moved the three bear prints to new wall locations -- I really like them where they all are!

Sorry for the glare in the glass of the artwork in the photos.

The twelve tiny William Hessian "Chubby Creatures" are in a frame that opens like a medicine cabinet. I mounted the little pieces on velcro dots so that you can move them around into whatever order you want to. Geez, they make me smile!

LOVE, love, LOVE this idea!

I've suddenly decided I need more art in my house, and as soon as finals are over, I will be making more!
