Daily Prompt: Art Appreciation in the South


Daily Prompt: Art Appreciation

Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it

Van Gogh cut off his ear, does not mean that I do not appreciate his work.

We have a wall dedicated to Southern Artists and Art that we have spent money on.  It is a reflection of where we live.

Our Art Wall

Even though I have not painted that room yet and remodeled it, we started this wall.  The idea was a true inspiration to make a theme for our guest room.

Once the room is complete it will feel comfortable and a great reflection of the South.

Daily Prompt: Walls the Second Time Around


Daily Prompt: Wall to Wall

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 am not certain if it is due to my hubby and I being two households come together or if it is just that by the time you are starting over for the second time life is different.

We do not have the newlywed look in our home of blank walls.  We have the it was here and hers are added look.  Our Kitchen and Dining area are combined and are not very large.  They look country.  The decor is such that we are in the country and the kitchen matches.

The television room looks like something out of a hunting lodge.  Old fashioned popcorn poppers over a fireplace.  Wildlife pictures on the wall as well as the fish that hang on the wall.  It is the room that hubby spends a lot of time in and it makes him happy.  Happy hubby helps.

Our bedroom I just redecorated so it is probably the only modern room in the house.  A nice remake of Van Gogh’s Starry Night hangs so that is the last thing we see at night and first in the morning.
That room is simply decorated.  Just a few shelves with a plant on one and a few paintings that match the decor.

Our home is still a work in progress just as our marriage is.  Although we are older, we still are a work in progress and each room will some day express us.

What does your home say about you?  Would love to hear.

Here are what other Daily Prompt Writer’s had to say on the subject:

  1. Sad Things (# 1) Where is the Cat? | The Happy Hermit
  2. Wall to Wall, or Alternatively, One of the Reasons Living in a Garage Sucks | Storm In A B-Cup
  3. black sheep wall | Bubonicboon
  4. Daily prompt: wall to wall | Taking time, making time
  5. Wall To Wall | Travellin’ Thru Rambles

I actually wrote a little later today so that there would be a few more prompt writers to add.  Hope that you enjoy.
