I pondered the question and then went for a wander around the house to see how many pieces of my own art I had displayed.
Here is my response to the question:
I do display my artwork – I have actually created artwork specifically for display for my own home and for family members. I finished a large canvas on the weekend and once it has been sealed it will take pride of place in our bedroom. You can see it here.
I sometimes make a piece of artwork for my husband or family members as a present for birthdays, christmas or anniversary’s. All of which are on display. A quick glance around the house reveals the blackbird painting waiting to be hung, two pieces in the lounge room, a collage canvas in the kitchen, 5 different pieces of artwork in the dining room, 2 paintings in the hall, one in our bedroom, my son’s room and the study.
I don’t really create art for anyone other than myself – unless of course if it is for a gift – so I don’t think about what anyone else thinks, whether they get it or not. My husband is very supportive of my art, as is my father-in-law who is an artist and displays much of his work in his home, we also have a number of his pieces in our home.
