The only piece of "real" art that I have every bought was this watercolor at an auction years and years ago. I used to date someone who loved going to auctions and I would go with him almost every weekend. I really did like this and am glad that I bought it.
When Rich and I got married we went to Nova Scotia on our honeymoon and both of us were taken by all the lupins we saw there. They were growing everywhere!!! I found this little framed print in one of the gift shops we went into and bought it.
My favorite time of the year is Christmas. I just love the "Christmas" spirit. One of my favorite holiday movies is "A Christmas Carol". I found this at an auction once and bought it. I have it hanging up year round. :)
When my great grandmother died I asked for this picture of hers. It always hung in the living room. It's very old and quite darkened from time. I have this picture of Jesus and my other art work I have shared hanging in my bedroom.
I have two big bare walls in my living room and this is what I have had hanging up for the 12 years that we have lived here.....NOTHING! Yup, this is my bare wall. The other wall looks just the same LOL! I did see something a few weeks ago that I almost bought but the frame was not made well. I asked the store if they would give it to me at a discount and they said that they couldn't. It was similar to the one above. It was a wicker basket on a doily on a shelf filled with purple flowers. I think it was lilacs but I don't recall. That was the first print I had seen in years that I really liked. But I didn't want to pay for it with an inferior frame (the mitering job was awful and bare wood was showing).
So for now, I will continue to look at my bare walls and wait for my art's desire.
