|New understated look|
Lately my mantel has been trying on new looks to cover the "hole" or TV niche that I find beyond tacky and totally useless.
|Mickey, you have been painted over|
This painting was the first large painting I did for myself and is, admittedly, pretty bad.
I heard things like its an elephant, Andre the giant, and Mickey Mouse. Mickey had to go.
I put this painting by Jenny at MFAMB in front of it for awhile.
To be honest all of the color was getting on my nerves. The room began to have juvenile, circus-ey feel. So out it went as soon as I needed a spot for this...
|"Being There" by Kerry Steele|
This painting just needs a spot until I sell it. My family loves it but it really did not work with the feel of my family room. So out IT went and I got to painting over Mickey.
The resulting look is so completely different than all of its predecessors that it makes me laugh but I am liking it for now.
Speaking of mantels and my work, have you seen the painting I did for Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda?
She did a beautiful job of styling it in her gorgeous home.
