On Friday T. and I went and picked up some art from my framer’s.* I got all three pieces framed with specific locations in our house in mind (not something I usually do,) which meant we could hang them up right away:
Dancing in the Breeze
monoprint silkscreen by Mara Sprafkin
Blessed are the peacemakers
a Vietnam-era (1967) anti-war poster by William (Bill) Weege
I’ve had this last once since high school and am so excited that it’s finally framed and ready to be hung, because it’s one of my favorite pieces ever. This will be hung above this chair (which is directly opposite our front door) after I finish painting the silver part of the hallway back to white.
*For those of you in the Bay Area I highly recommend Chris Lange at Design Framing on Park Blvd in Oakland for all of your framing needs. He does a meticulous job, is incredibly reasonably priced, and has many long term customers, which I think is always the most telling sign of a good business.
