MY WALL GALLERY.....

I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING SMALL PAINTINGS AND PICTURES THAT I FIND IN THE THRIFT STORE AND FLEA MARKETS FOR YEARS...I DON'T CARE FOR EMPTY WALLS...

I WAS INSPIRED BY A POST YESTERDAY BY BRUNCH AT SAKS...I FOLLOW HER BLOG AND LOVE THE WALL GALLERIES THAT SHE POSTED...GUESS I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT DOESN'T LIKE EMPTY SPACES....


I TEND TO LIKE MINIATURE PAINTINGS AND PHOTOS....
I PAINTED THIS WHEN MY FATHER WAS ILL...I FINISHED IT IN HIS ROOM AT THE HOSPITAL WHERE I WOULD VISIT HIM...HE WAS A GREAT MAN. GOOD THINGS CAN BE BORN OF TRAGIC THINGS THAT OCCUR IN YOUR LIFE...I DON'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO PAINT FROM IMAGINATION SO I PAINTED THIS MODIGLIANI FROM A PICTURE I FOUND IN A MAGAZINE...IT IS PART OF MY WALL GALLERY IN MY DINING ROOM.
