Procrastination aside, there hasn’t really been a good reason why I haven’t hung the pictures that Beck brought back from Thailand for us. Yes, we had to buy picture frames, but really, there has been no other reason.
Suz’s sis, who pretty much has the best taste in all the land, picked up the paintings on her Thailand/Asia adventure last year. The paintings are done on some sort of extra-thin rice paper which may or may not be edible.
I think if war broke out in Canada, and all sources of food were cut off, and every last bit of food had been plundered by the invading pirates, I could eat the paintings and survive just long enough for the doctors to find me and put me in a military hospital where all the food tastes even worse than the paintings.
Anyway, these super-cool 6x8 paintings, jam-packed with Asian awesomeness, have sat in our Buddha cabinet for a year. We finally became fed up with our barren dining room walls and decided to hang them.
Carefully, I measured and drilled. Then I pounded some plastic anchors into the wall. A couple of screws later and our dining room was 12% closer to completion. To see a larger image of one of the paintings, click here.
The next step, I suppose, will be curtains to prevent the pirates from looking at us while we eat our microwave dinners.
