When All Else Fails…

20140114-084855.jpg Stick a silver headed pushpin in it. Such was the case this week-end with this hand-tinted vintage artwork of the Hudson River we found in a old frame we used for another project. We loved the crusty quality of it peeling off the board, so I just took one of our trusty utilitarian silver headed pushpins from the shops and viola, it was hung. Next followed a simple John Derian postcard underneath that tied it all together. Really the lesson here is if you find something you really like, hang it up. I think so often we wait to have things framed perfectly and then it just sits in a box or corner. Artwork can sometimes be taken too seriously. Prop it up, pin it up, whatever it takes to start enjoying it–if you have it, use it. The loo at WestWard has never looked spiffier. Simple. Done. Enjoy. A new trio of words I am quite liking together as the new year begins…
