{Paper Wall}


Posted in art, thrift by thepaperwalls on November 30, 2008

Paintings of unknown provenance add mystery to the walls. And mystery inspires conjecture. And conjecture just inspires.

    I LOVE the tiger and seascape ones. Do you actually have these on your walls?

      kind of. one of them is hanging on the wall, one is waiting for me to paint over the hideous frame it came in, and the lion… well, she is hanging out in my bedroom on the floor. i thought she looked awesome at the thrift store, but actually putting her on the wall brought me a little too close to an ironic tackiness that is not really my style… i like to balance on the precipice, but not dive into that kind of thing.
