Did A Little Art Swap In The "Family" Room Recently. Found That I Need A Spotlight! Status: Perfect!
I finally gave in and removed the fabric backing / frame from this Witco art piece. The backing was just too icky to use. I've still got it so I can fix it up and put it all back together if later I decide too, but I'm digging the look without!
This above is what was in the Family Room. It's a great piece but it doesn't really POP like
the Witco piece. It wasn't hard to decide to bring it down and replace it. Now that this is
down I can take the time to take the frame apart and square it up properly. I got this at a
thrift store and the frame was cockeyed when I got it. I'm not stickler for perfection when
buying at the thrift store so it never really bothered me and it went up right away. I almost
sold it once until the Girlfriend asked me not to. But now I can fix it up nice and find a new
place to hang it.
It looks great in open sunlight like this but in the evening it needs a light shining on it. It's almost
invisible against the brick at night. Now I know what those cone shape aluminum sconce lamps
are for! I need to install one on the ceiling out from the fireplace that I can shine on this area.
I was considering shooting the pics during the evening with a roaring fire but I didn't think
you'd even be able to see it! It would have looked fantastically tribal though. Maybe try that
tomorrow since I've been wanting to get a nice fire going in the fireplace anyway. Maybe
I'll be surprised and get good pics right away...or I can play with the setting on the camera.
These will have to do for now. This is another example of having more than enough (ok...
hoarding...to a degree) and it's bright side! Too much art? Never!
