On the Map!

After a few months in the making I finally hung some of my paintings at my hair salon for display and eventually, sale (I'm not quite set up for the sale part yet, but I'll be working on it during the next few days).

Warning: T
he quality of the photos sucks, but they'll give you an idea of the setup and how the paintings look on the walls.

(thanks for letting me borrow this one back for display Sis!)


I had a lot of fun putting them up and it's pretty neat to see them hanging in a public place. Her hair studio also happens to be on the Hintonburg Arts Map (lucky #13!). It feels good.

ps - A big thank you to Sis for bringing up the idea of hanging my paintings with our hairdresser; I'm bumping her photos off the walls to make room for my stuff!


  1. OMG, these look GREAT!! Whaddaya mean, the photo quality sucks... You've even managed to create beautiful photos of your paintings - your shots are nicely framed.
