Bits and Pieces Coming Together

My house is coming back together! We’ve finished painting the great room, the sectional finally arrived (after two months of waiting), and we’re starting to get some art back on the walls. Still not completely done…waiting on my bookshelves that will flank my armoire and my coffee table (snagged a major bargain), so I don’t want to share the whole room with you until it’s done! But I will give you a sneak peak at some of my new Gypsy art!

The sun was my special request; she painted it while she was here at my house. To give you an idea of size, it’s 4’ x 5’. It’s huge! That’s on my very big wall above the kitchen (refer back to these pictures to give you an idea). The mermaid and bottle piece I’ve had for a while, just waiting for the room redo. It’s painted on an antique ship’s door and it's about 3’ x 18”. It now hangs above our kitchen sink window, looking out over the river, and looks absolutely perfect there. Have to give DH credit on that one since he picked the spot. More to come!

So, this is why we LOVE Gypsy! She NEVER ceases to amaze me! Love the sun...Its a perfect piece for the wall!!! Much better than anything we have encountered on our art trips for sure!

Love the ship door too...

If your house doesn't inspire you creatively after all these artsy touches, I don't know what will. This is fantastic! Hopefully, when it's all finished, you'll be open to giving tours. :-P

haven't stopped by in a while, but i'm glad i did today to catch up! beautiful sun by gypsy! i love it! i would love to do more funky decor like you do, here. alas, sharing home with more traditionally minded folks. i was happy to get robin's egg blue on the walls in the kitchen-tv room recently. now, if i can just get past all the neutral ugly carpeting and orangy stained balcony and stair rail next. this spring! babysteppin' through our redecorating. would love to do an overhaul like you!
