Being I'm in a bit of a house mood today I've decided to look for inspiration for something to create in my house through the National Gallery's Website again (as I've said before, this is one of my favourites). What I found (which completely suprised me) is a bunch of painted walls that were installed in the gallery, brought to the gallery or purchased and removed from the original house to bring to the gallery. Imagine that, REMOVING a wall in a house to install it in a gallery space. So neat!

The next one I loved was called Figure Paintings by Garry Neill Kennedy in 1984. It is something I'd never do in a house but made me laugh when I saw it... What do you think??

Isn't it awesome! You need a good hand and a passage from a book that you love (or a chapter or a poem). But this is TOTALLY doable by anyone with some time, patience and inspiration to create. You should check out the short post on it at Curbly as well as her Blog about it. Two thumbs up for such a creative piece!
Well, I hope these have helped you think Creatively in your home!
Until Next time!
