Books and art - *wonderful*!!! :-) Every room looks more homely and interesting when I add books to it - but I can't have any more shelves on the wall! Wall space is valuable because my house is my gallery - displaying my own paintings.

I agree that gold frames look great - I have lots of similar frames hung carefully next to each other, and change the artwork in them so my favourites are always on display - and hopefully I can make time to paint new favourites! :-)

For walls too sunny for original art (even though I try to use lightfast paints) I have a collection of small prints and the most attractive greetings cards I come across. If they fade in time, it's no real loss, because I've enjoyed them for several years and collected replacements, so every now and again I change the contents of the frames on these sunny walls. I don't find or paint many pictures that need a different frame.

A few paintings are so special that they will hang in their places of honour for the rest of my life.
