Bosna #8, 57x53". I have seven left of the nine in this series. So there are plenty to change out when I get tired of looking at these. This should be referred to as the Leftovers Gallery, as everything that is hung here are the unsold pieces.
On the north wall next to Bosna #8 are some of my oil still lifes. I tried to select painting to hang together that had some kind of a theme, and edibles were perfect for a dining room, I thought. These are all 12" square canvases. My work in oil paint is pretty much realism, while my acrylics are non-representational.
The narrow walls that are in the eating area of the kitchen hold mixed media works for the most part. An exception is the small fused quilt on the left and the acrylic 'landscape' on the upper right. All are 12" square on canvas, with the quilt mounted on painted wooden panel. The thermostat is not my work and hangs crooked.
The narrowest wall holds two quilts and a mixed media collage. These are the equivalent of paintings hung over a toilet, but in this case it is the occasionally open kitchen garbage can. Note the complementary colored broom.
In order to hang all this stuff, I had to find it. And there are many big bins which had to be moved from upstairs or from the garage, which was the first hurdle to cross. The larger quilts where in rolls, wrapped up together with other quilts and getting to the ones I wanted to hang meant unrolling them and re-rolling until I found the right piece. After a while I just took the easiest to find.
These two pieces, Bon Bon #1 and #2 are old faves, and luckily were easy to find, and already had been hung in the last three houses. They hang on each side of the dining room window, pretty much in the shade, until the overhead light is on.
There is a lot more artwork in bins, closets and on shelves, but no more in the garage. And many more walls to fill. I used Command picture hanging strips, which are velcro sticky back. And for the quilts I had to resort to picture hooks and nails, which I don't like using, so I put the nails right up against the crown molding as close as I could get. Then I used nylon fishing line to hang the telescoping curtain rods which run through the rod pockets on the back of the quilts.
Thank heaven for my Pinterest page, or I would never remember the titles or sizes of my work.
