Today’s Daily Prompt asks, “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?”
I love how some themes/challenges fit together!
The cover for “3 is the Magic Number” was designed by Toby. I learned of two other designs he had and I splurged (rotating them out in the white frame every four months).
The castle with the Emerald City Green grass was created by Jackie, and a challenge we exchanged in terms of words to pictures.
I spoke of Heather’s work and how I lost one piece, but glad to get another. The blues, the patterns were part of what drew me to it.
My brother’s pieces, drawn with regular blue or black pens until the ink runs out, were done ‘during times of boredom’. His lake scenes are my favorite. (He has yet to realize I kept a couple.)
The works I have there allow for “E3” – enjoyment, encouragement and escape. The combinations, interpretations and creations amaze and delight me. Knowing some of these artists, having met and spoken with others at various venues – if they’re bold enough to put their work out in the world, why shouldn’t I try? As for escapes – it’s either to wander away from whatever I’m working on or make my way back into a story I’m writing (like the statue/castle for this month’s Camp NaNo).
The heavier, larger artwork is lined up on the floor (can only have so much tape, so many thumbtacks, etc.). Do I dare dream of designing and decorating an entire room with art, leaving little spaces bare?
What’s on your wall?
