I love to be inspired. Literally, almost every day something inspires me. I can drive down any back road in Bucks County and find inspiration. One day I was inspired by a restaurant. On my way to the Devon Horse Show a few years back, I stopped for lunch at The White Dog Café in Wayne, PA. As soon as I walked in, I felt such excitement. I was surrounded by art. Dog art. Wall to wall dog art. Beautiful oils and acrylics of all shapes and sizes in all types of frames. I can’t tell you what I had for lunch. My mind was working overtime. I just thought, I need this. I need to be surrounded by something like this. So when I got home, I gathered all my dog art. Some are paintings, some are prints and some are even photographs. They were scattered throughout the house. I laid everything out on the floor and saw my collection in a whole different light. One thing I don’t have is wall space. I love my big oversized windows but crave walls. So I had to settle for a narrow wall between my kitchen and tavern room. I picked out my favorites and just went to work hanging them. I do everything by eye. I have no patience for perfection. I was so proud of the results. I have an art gallery. You can have one too. Don’t be afraid of holes in your wall. Life is too short not to be surrounded by the things you love.
