With two budding young artists in the house we have a lot of artwork. Hadley arrives home with a project a day to add to our overflowing art folder. Carson loves to tape up pieces throughout the house for display (we have a lot of blank walls at the moment), but I wanted to find a nice way to showcase their favorites.
I found these colorful frames at IKEA for $2 and during Hadley’s nap last week Carson selected nine finalists to hang in the gallery. We chose a wall in their basement playroom and he even hammered in most of the nails. Then he had the idea of layering Hadley’s flower over one of his watercolors (top right). When Hadley woke up he proudly showed her the wall, explaining how the flower piece was a collaboration. Had, that means we both did it together.
