Day 34 of theÂ 90 Days of AwesomeÂ is in the bank! What made today awesome? I finally hung my wall art!
Given that this is the 90 Days of Awesome, many of you might expect me to spend the day celebrating in the sun and watching fireworks. Although I consider myself patriotic, I don’t really celebrate Independence Day. In fact, I rarely celebrate any holidays; and even when I do, it’s a quieter affair.
So what did I do today? I had what I call a â€œSusie Housewife Dayâ€ and mainly worked on chores and projects around the condo like laundry and filing papers. I also finally hung up my wall art.
People who know me well know that I generally suck at appreciating art without the help of a docent. I love listening to people explain the stories behind a work of art and architecture, but without this guide, I can fly through a museum in 10 minutes flat. Not surprisingly then, I don’t own much art.
I’ve been in my condo for about nine months and I told myself I had to hang my artwork this summer. As I hung the few pieces I own, I noted that they’re all from friends and my relationship with the artist was as important as the artwork itself. Here’s what went up today:
- My display of hand-tied fishing flies by Cameron Derbyshire (the name of each fly refers to aspect of our friendship)
- A print and a painting by Jeff Del Nero
- A photo by Sheila Dee
I recently got the photos from Stacey Champions’ show on sexual assault and government regulation of reproductive rights. I was a model for both displays. I think one will end up in my office and the other in my home once I get them framed.
