When I mentioned wanting to “frame the new painting in the living room”, this is the one I was talking about. It looks fine with its white edges, but I’m thinking it needs a simple frame in a medium-toned wood, or maybe plain black.
I’ve tried a few things in that corner of the living room over the years. Here’s an old shot from the same angle.
Sigh. I really don’t miss all that unpainted wood because it didn’t look good in person, but it was mighty pretty in photos. Anyway, I liked that print by The Black Apple for a long time, but I was ready for something different. I hung my Amy Ruppel painting there for a while too.
It’s now on the opposite wall, above the floral chair. I briefly tried this giant botanical print in that corner next.
It was way too big for the space, and it looks so much better in my bedroom. The new painting is the right size, the right colors, and I love its movement and design.
And are you digging the tiny fingerprints all over the TV? Me too.
