Nimue and nicnac, you've got it spot-on! I looked for a photo of that area, but it won't work for this thread.
The picture sits at a slight tilt on top of a framed family photo...it is not hanging on the wall.
In the "key" photo you see the walls of my studio are barn board...the painting is against that wood. I JUST installed a light laminate floor with an oak planking pattern. The painting rests above the only chair I have for sitting (except my computer chair).
The studio (affectionately dubbed "The Rat Hole") is my only living quarters in winter months, so I have a small kitchen table in here with a drawer...next to it is a chair with an American Indian quilt that the cat likes to snooze on.
Yet above the painting still is the hole for a smoke stack, should i put a wood stove in here. A large metal coffee can is incerted into it, and I light candles there...thus, the shiny metal object. This room would be considered the living room by any other terms.
You ALL had a sense of the placement.
My observation is that because you resonated with the painting, you were more spiritually relaxed and comfortable with seeing the whole area, rather than "respecting space" and trying to be polite. Just an observation.
Nicnac pegged this one, and so will provide our next subject.
Dezarae, you're doing great, please keep trying (or not trying as the case may be) since you obviously have a gift for this, it just needs some practice and loving shepherding.
By the way, I just moved the little basket, in fact closer to the painting location. Nice work, all of you!
You are most certainly welcome to copy the painting and print it out, particularly if you find it healing. Nimue, it is acrylic and i used a pallet knife...it was fun child's play just gooshing the colors and mixing them with no particular destination.
