Diary of Home

There are so many media posts about how and where to hang artwork.

Should it all have to match or have a cohesive theme?

Does one have to plan it all out before hand on little pieces of paper?

This is a wall in my kitchen where I mixed various artwork.

When we downsized into our apartment last summer I realized that there was quite a bit of

artwork that wasn’t going to fit and I was going to have to prioritize.

I knew that I would keep my favourite water colours

as most of them were done by friends and family.

 I couldn’t bear to part with them.


 I knew that I would keep the work that my children did when they were small.

I love all their self-portraits and have managed to save them all these years.


The art teacher at a child-care center where I once worked made this wonderful fish with the children.

I carried it home on the subway...

I painted the Happy Birthday sign and it hangs all year round 

because it’s always somebody’s birthday!

Back in the kitchen are two prints of the town that I live in.

They are both by the same artist.

One was a gift from my mum and the other I picked up at a second-hand store in town.

So many of the things in my home tell a story

and that is the theme I decided to use when I hung my art work.

  1. ...I love to walls like yours, we also collect objects that have beauty and meaning to us. It sure beats a decorator look!!!

  2. I think your artwork needs to mean something to you. I don't like those generic pieces that people hang just because they match. It is much better if you love them and then it doesn't matter to me if they match or not!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
