Can you believe this stack of artwork has been leaning up against the wall behind the chair in my entry for over a year?! Odd how you get used to randomly placed things in a home after a bit, hardly even noticing them. But last week I did notice the dust collecting behind them and thought, this just isn't right! These paintings are my grandmothers and they deserve more care and attention than this. So where to hang?
I decided this lone print on the wall just inside the front door could go,
and perhaps a collage instead would be fun.
In the old days, when I had more time for this type of thing, I would have mapped out an arrangement on Kraft paper, getting everything just as I liked before daring to put holes in the wall. But not now, oh how things change. Instead I played around with some options on the floor for a minute and then just started hanging.
Yes, it's a bit odd, but I like it. Not perfect, but lively with room to add to the collection later if I like.
I have to say I'm enjoying capturing glimpses of the paint by numbers and flower arrangement done by my sweet grandmother as I walk in and out of the house. It simply makes me happy.
