My Wall....and the Inspiration

So I finally got around to hanging some frames. I had been wanting to fill this wall to give the space some character. All of the frames hold very special and personal memories. I still want to add more, going down very close to the floor and a little higher towards ceiling too. But so far, here is my wall.



Peter wrote me a poem years ago. How sweet is he? I have the original framed in my bedroom, but I wanted to paint the poem onto a canvas. Peter actually helped me out with this. He painted the canvas a Faux wood (you can't see well in this picture, but look closely) and then I painted the poem. So it's pretty cool that both of us were part of this project. (it was quite the challenge to fit the entire poem, so I had to cram the words in) I got the inspiration to do this from HERE.

Cherry blossom tree I painted and the note Peter wrote me the day we met.

Here it is up close. He left this note on my windshield after we said Hello to each other, I had parked in front of his place to go lay out at the beach while I crammed studying for finals. I get all smitten every time I read it...big smile:-) (I'm hoping having it out doesn't fade the writing, anybody know or any suggestions to keep from fading?)

Magazine photo of Peter when he was IKBA U.S. Light heavy weight champion, an article above from an interview he did, a photo of me in Colombia writing "Love" on the beach, another photo of Peter after a win, and first photo I took with my Diana camera of flowers. {all above photos by me}

What do you think? Would you fill every inch of a wall with frames? Too much for you?


Hope you are all enjoying your Labor Day weekend.
