While I was innocently browsing last weekend, I spotted a series of 4 paintings that caught my eye.
I don't know why but they reminded me of the work of oft mentioned and admired, Janet Hill. They don't really look like her work but rather have that everyday-object-is-beautiful quality about them I find fascinating. If I could paint, I would paint with this in mind.
I must break here to post some of Ms. Hill's most beautiful pieces (in my humble opinion). I have no clue what she charges as they are ALWAYS sold out well before I get there.
Ok, back to reality. The paintings I purchased are not one of a kind of originals. They were probably done up in a huge factory in China. Nor were they painted by someone who has a repetoire of mesmorizing pieces. At least not that anyone knows of. But they are mine. So there!
Now I just need to decide where to hang them. I'm thinking in the parlor bathroom.
They are about a foot square each. What about the set of four horizontally positioned on the short wall over the tub?
I never intended to outfit this room with something so literal. My original plan was to hang a few large, matted, black and white photos of New York. (Marble bathrooms remind me of old world New York sites like Grand Central, etc...so thats where I got that idea from) So what do you think? And if I do hang these in here, how to I address the other walls once these paintings are up?
PS: In case you're curious, the soap paintings were from Home Goods at $13 a piece.
