Art, Finally

These paintings are rated G and are suitable for all audiences.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.

I love the paintings, they remind me of a cheshire cat...

Hummm... I really need to get cracking and hang pictures in the new house. It needs to be done SO badly yet I keep putting it off. Why is that? What is it we have against pictures???

Yours are awesome though

Suz has been really bugging me to get this picture-hanging done too. It has been almost 2 years since we moved in. And the walls are just like old mother Hubbard's cupboards.

Wow - what a fantastic couple of paintings. She really does have good taste. I don't, however, having only ever owned one piece of art - a painting of the great Jim Clark winning the 1965 French Grand Prix at Clermond-Ferrand, which I sadly lost when moving house a few years ago. I have no idea where it went, but I still miss it. Look after your cats! ;)

i have lived with procastination and i have heard many of it's excuses...how good of you not to make any.

and i date procastination..let me show you how..i have this toilet bowl that cracked back in the middle of october, you know, last yr..immediately, that day i went out to buy a new one..and i was told it would be done right away..well, the thing is still leaking, a red bucket is part of the decor in that bathroom and what date is it and nothing yet...hmmm, yeap, it's been a couple of days..

now, the leak is becoming a bit bigger and i'm scared i will have a major flood in there..so it's time for the plummer and it's guaranteed fee of $250-$275 for installing one silly toilet, and that is if there is no trouble..

grrrr........

and to something else...i hope your pain is manegable but i know you suffer. you are very brave and i think of you often and how courageous you deal with it all.

hugs.
