I finally, FINALLY got around to hanging (most of) my pictures. After, what, seven months living in the house? File this, too, under "things I am happy about today."

All of the below are clickable for higher resolution:

I love this picture. It's one of two originals I bought on the same day, in the same little gallery, in a little town I was passing through while visiting my mom and Scott in Mississippi.

This is the other of the two originals I bought in Mississippi, and I love it too. The cartoonish style is deceptively simplistic, but there's something that appeals to me in the absurdity of it. Is the rabbit changing the moon like a light bulb - or is he stealing it? (I think he's hanging it there, personally.) And what's up with that blackbird?

The sylph, she is cute. I got her in my now-sadly-demised favorite little bar ever, the Red Tub.

Good ol' country road. I got this at some little gallery in Charleston, I think. Not even close to being an original, but it appeals.

Molly's not exactly artwork, but she's certainly an original and a favorite. =)

Some day soon I'll get a pic of the Dali print I hung above the mission desk in my office (the one I use for paper stuff, not the one with the computer on it) but for right now it's just too damn messy for photographic documentation. =)

The blackbird is the bunny's interracial girlfriend.

She's saying, 'A little to the left. No, bring it just a tad back to the right. No, it looked better to the left. Move it just a bit higher. No, that's too high. Now that's too low. I think it looked better to the left now that I think of it. And lower. No, that's too low. OK never mind, just put it back where it was before I told you to move it to the left.'

By the way, I love that first painting so so much. What a score !

I would have scooped her up in a second.

I love the rabbit painting, I must say if I had seen that for sale I would have purchased it myself.

But you do have me curious.. What is this about the "now-sadly-demised" red tub? Did they shut down? I enjoyed going there quite a bit, but mainly when there weren't too terribly many people. It was very easy to make it too crowded feeling for me..

I miss the goldfish :(

I really like all of those, and especially appreciate that they are all so different from one another. I'm still totally digging your kitchen. And Molly, too, of course. She looks mighty cute and comfortable.
