Boy, what a loaded question.
Do I hang my own art in my house?
2 Part answer.
All the art I have [on hand] is hanging in the studio. Done or in process...it surrounds me every day.
So if there's only a few of my pieces hanging in the house...what else is on the wall?
Plates. A ton of plates. A ridiculous amount of plates.Plates from Mexico, Turkey, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Spain, Portugal, France, England, Denmark, several places in South America and Africa and probably many more places.
There's the antique Royal Doultons [for the Anglophile in me] a collection of Royal Copenhagen Christmas and Mothers Day Plates, Majolica, Faience, Talavera, Art Deco, Ethnic, some hand-painted, some decals... all have special meaning to me.
They're gifts, travel souvenirs, family heirlooms. They're old, they're new...oh, I think I might have painted one or two.
As for Art...
But, mostly plates. I guess I collect plates.
Almost every wall is covered in art of some sort...just not so much mine!
