The "before" shot. I had moved a large print to the other side of the room and these 3 together just didn't fill out the space. It felt out of proportion. I had these two prints framed and didn't quite know where they would end up.
I love this print by my childhood friend Terese Elhard. It's taken up on her family's farm in Northome (near the Albrecht's family farm too). The words in barbed wire are just so cool. And the 'E' is in her handwriting, which is just like her mom's. They were our neighbors growing up in Bemidji and they used to have an 'E' painted above their garage door just like that. You can see her other art and contact her about prints here: //mysterese.com
Here is how it turned out. I have been begging Anthony to hang a guitar on the wall forever and he picked up a mount at Guitar Center a while ago. I just love that it looks cool and he can just pick up his guitar and play anytime he feels. He doesn't think the guitar is good enough to display. But it just makes it all the more OK if something bad happens to it. To the right of the guitar are a picture of my apartment building in New York City and a favorite shot from our wedding with my bridesmaids. (Obama is on the adjacent wall, I love that print too. Stars and Stripes By Phil Fung)
To the left are the same Elizabeth Taylor Warhol print (clearance from SFMOMA) and a shot of Julie G. with a red neon light shining on her at Bridgid's in Bemidji. Unfortunately, we are going to have to cover our old holes. You'd have thought all of those pictures would have covered them up, but alas, no.
The Minnesota print ended up next to the entertainment center. It replaced a print of the Chrysler building. Not sure where I should put that either. For now, it's in the closet.
We also added two more pics to the other end of the room. Angi's Lotus 2 and one of Anthony singing in his old kitchen. Makes it more dimond-y shaped than the previous arrangement.
The whole wall. I didn't get a shot of it but we also put up the hoop I embroidered for our wedding by the TV. Maybe some day I'll convince Anthony to let me rearrange the furniture, but I'm happy with it for now.
