Just Jot It January & Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Art
Our challenge hostess, Linda G. Hill, says…
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Talk about something that’s hanging on your wall. Add a picture, if you’d like. If you have no art on your walls, talk about something in a museum. Have fun!
This SOCS prompt should be fun. I’m looking forward to see what everyone else posts today. The link above will take you to the main page, where you can join in, and also find other entries.
I’ve got quite a few things hanging on the walls around here, but not as much as I used to have.
Years ago we planned on painting the walls, so I took everything down…and the walls never did get painted, so I’ve occasionally hung some more stuff up. Here’s just a few.
I got this painting at a yard sale. I like it because it’s the little Dia de Los Muertos skeletons dancing. I really love anything to do with the Mexican celebration of Day of the Dead, and little skeletons doing ordinary things are to honor those who have passed on.
In the bottom left corner is a small greeting card. My aunt gave me this for Halloween one year, when I was just a little kid. I’ve kept it all these years because if you know me, I love ghosts and Halloween.
In the bottom right corner is a blank card I found somewhere. It is a tiger and a kitten. A tiger is my spirit animal, and of course I love all kittens & cats.
So, yeah, you could say this all means a lot to me.
This needlepoint of a Siamese cat, I found a yard sale, too. Of course a cat…and it reminds me of our outside cat, Big Man, blue eyes and all.
This tiger painting I’ve had a long time. My mother painted it for me. She did oil paintings all the time, and there were so many different subjects she painted. I still have a lot of them, but others were sold. This one is special.
Here’s a couple of paintings I’ve done to showcase my blogging…teleportingweena & Ghost. They were done in acrylic, and aren’t framed or anything, but the orange one is hanging on the wall, and the blue ones is propped up beneath it. I see them every day. The orange one is made to look like my other blog on blogger. That’s the way the background theme looks. The Ghost one has some shimmery shiny kind of paint, so that in different lights, the word appears and disappears. Pretty cool!
There are other paintings I’ve done here on the walls, and my collection of crosses are covering the wall above my computer desk. Nothing at all is fancy or expensive, but I like them all.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
