If you happen to be an art lover, but (as it happens) happen NOT to have the $$$ needed to purchase a painting:
or- if you tend to change your taste every few months:
I’ve got you covered!
This hack is simple, frugal, green and genius.
I happen to love art books, those hard cover many pages ones, that depict my favorite painters- mainly- Picasso.
I love his work because of its simplicity , honesty, colourful lively lines, and somehow-the composition relaxes me.
Yep- the ones us older (mature, mature) folks used in school .
My partner made these from wood scraps he had, using about 2 nails for each stand.
The “sketchy” one was made many years ago, when the kids were younger and more “artistic” (bored?),and we let them, because ,as you may well see- the back is totally covered by the book it is holding.(yes, it is one of those cases where you can’t judge a book by its book stand cover).
So- if you happen to already have a good art book containing pictures of your favorite painter-photographer, find wood scraps and a few nails, nail it down and open your book on your favorite art piece.
Next month (or week? or day??) when you feel tired of that picture- flip over to another page, and so forth. tired of that artist? get another book.
If you look closely at the two pictures, you’ll see I flipped the pages in my 3 art books- and got -in my opinion- a totally different vibe in my living room.
Enjoy- the cooliflower.
