The Wall

To answer Mona's suggestion, I took some pictures of our bedroom wall. These paintings used to be more spread out on three sides of the wall, but one night my husband decided to rearrange them. This is the result. It is not the most attractive arrangement, but we can now see them all while lying on the bed. It's nice to wake up every morning being greeted by our cats! :)

(The first picture looks warped because I had to connect two wide-angle pictures to show all pictures.)

(The bobcat and leopard are not ours. I wish they were though...)

Thanks for sharing this with us Akiko, it's wonderful!

I agree with everyone too that it's such a nice idea to see all of these when you wake up!

Mona, this arrangement reminds me of the galleries and museums in the 19th century. I think covering the entire wall space with paintings is an interesting idea although it definitely is not a Japanese style.;)

Danielle Barlow said...

Oh my goodness, that is amazing Akiko! I love having pictures clustered together - it's very victorian.

Wow! What an amazing gallery. I especially like the trio in the lower canvas, left hand wall (second photo)-- something about the dark background really set them off so... classically.

As to the Leopard, I have often wondered what it would be like to sleep next to a big cat like that (although two medium size house cats take up plenty of bed space-- under the covers, too!)

artbyakiko said...

R thanks for your visit and leaving such wonderful comments. I also wonder about sleeping with a big cat. It must be cool if you don't get eaten first though.

What a wonderful gallery of kitties to wake up to! Akiko...there is NO WAY one could arrange your art 'unattractively'!! =0) Ingrid
