Art Gallery

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.
