Prompt: What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
Some walls in my home are pretty empty, while others are full. In my bedroom, I have a full picture wall with artwork and a couple other ornaments displayed around a pictograph of the Emmaby Jane Austen. A pictograph is a picture of something made up by the words of it’s story. I framed it with a poster frame in silver from Michael’s.
There are two silver etched drawings on this photo collaboration wall, prints from an artist on Etsy, of Miss Dior perfume and Audrey Hepburn. I just liked the silver etching, the drawing, of these pictures so I bought whatever black frames would fit these 2 frames at Winners. By this point I had decided to mix the frames up so I bought a tarnished silver looking frame with a picture in it that says ” Ok. Breathe. and drink tea. This is a print done by blogger Le Zoe Musings on WordPress. Kelly, the lady who designed the teacup print also works for gloss48, a company that offers limited edition makeup and hair products or products that are just brand new.
On the bottom left hand side is a spice rack from Modcloth and I fill it with my favourite perfumes and hang my favourite chunky bracelets off the hooks on the bottom of the rack. In the middle of the right side is my University Diploma in which I graduated with distinction and below that a pink, orange, and green picture of flowers sitting on a Lilly pad. It is on a canvas that boxes out so there is no need for a frame. But the picture is one of my favourites, impressionistic and insanely colourful. I am always drawn to it first.
My last two pictures are framed by two different white frames from Winners and they are also by an artist on Etsy who does watercolours. They are two of my most loved pictures as well. In the top left corner are three dresses in pea green, blue, and grass green at the modistes hanging up on three stands. I adore the colour scheme and the artsy look of the painting. The picture on the the top right side is a picture of wine being poured into a glass and I love the movement in this picture. It is more modern but if you know anything about painting glass or crystal is difficult to paint so the artist does a fantastic job with that and the movement of the wine makes you want to drink wine, to enjoy a glass yourself.
This is one important wall in my house and I will show you one other from the kitchen where I painted fruit during the Oilers 2006 play off run to vent my frustrations. All three pictures are done in acrylic and framed just on the outside of the canvases with frames from Michael’s.
