On this, the last day of Dress Your Walls month, I bring you another picture from my home. As you may know, my fiancé and I are currently in the middle of trying to combine our styles and belongings, which is always something of a challenge.
This painting, by Austin artist Brandon Petree, only received a so-so reaction from Peter when I hung it on the wall. But within a few hours, he'd already warmed up to it. Painted with regular house paint, this canvas sat in my mother's garage for four years, seemingly immune to my attempts to ship it across the country. Finally, just this past summer, my father drove it out when he came to visit. I missed it so much, and I—and now Peter—think it looks pretty amazing next to the dark wood of our Parsons dining table and the rich yellow of the walls.
