Art on My Walls { I heart art }

A year ago this wall in my kitchen had the yellow frame hanging with nothing. Just the frame, no glass, no chalkboard, nothing. It stayed that way for quite some time. I had a vision for the wall, but I wasn't quite sure how to make it happen. So, for pretty much a year I have been collecting prints and paintings from artists I admire (they aren't all displayed here, they will be on my other wall of art,
I'll show you that next November [wink]).

A week ago I hung the final print for this wall.
Also for the first time I hung artwork I created in my home.
It is complete, and I LOVE it.
I am calling it my inspiration wall (well one of them).
I spend about 70% of my day in my kitchen so it's fitting to have all this inspiring work hung there. It is also the first thing you see when you walk in the back door where most people enter our home. I think it's a good first impression.
