First up we have this painting:
This is an acrylic painting on canvas painted by a very talented previous lodger.
This is a framed photo of an enormous wave crashing against a coastal village - no idea where it was taken. I got this from a junk shop ages ago for £1!
This is lovely. Not sure quite how it was made - a tiled mirror with painted shell decoration. We got it from a craft shop in Ireland whilst on Honeymoon 14 years ago!
This is a detail of a painting - love the way you can see the texture of the brushstrokes. Origin of this one unknown.
This is so texture rich too. Made of handmade paper. Signed WaterfieldYoung, an american artist. Can't believe I got this for just £1 from a Salvation Army shop!
This sea creature mural in my son's bedroom was painted by me when 8 months pregnant with my first child. It's still there as my son doesn't want me to paint over it! (10 years later!)
And finally, we have this. It's left over from our 'hippy days'. It is a large bicycle wheel with the spokes wrapped around with coloured material and giant feathers tied on. It also has a metallic golden sun with a face attatched to the middle. It was made by a friend of ours and hangs on a wooden area above the stairs.
This is just a selection of some of the pieces we have in our house, do you have hand crafted or painted items in your house?
See you tomorrow,
