    Thought this might be kinda fun to see what your favorite picture...or framed art is that's in your house! I have mine in my sewing room and its just one of those pictures that makes me feel warm and I smile everytime I see it!

    Doesn't quite fit with the rest if the decor in our apartment but I could never part with it :)

    I just love all the details!

    I love your pic, too. Who's the artist? I change out quilts for decorations. My avatar is quilted with pumpkins so that goes up for fall.

    The title is "Shepherdess with her Flock."
    I'm usually not a huge "art" fan, but this artist, Jean Francois Millet always draws me in. I don't know why, because most of his famous painting involve farming, which is pretty foreign to me. I bought a framed print of this one at a thrift store, and it just makes me feel peaceful when I look at it. Someday, I hope to pair it with a print of this one by the same artist. The title is "Angelus":

    Great topic, MrsMoe. I hope others post too :)

    Mine is a painting that my husband and I bought when we were first married. It is a Venetian scene and goes well with the Venetian Carnavale Masks that he purchased for me one deployment.



    EDIT: Sorry the pictures are so grainy... the underwater camera is the only camera I can find since the move :roll:

    My sewing room is decorated with jigsaw puzzles of my favortie theme (quilting, Norman Rockwell, covered bridges) but my favorite has to be a picture of my great grandmother working on a lone star quilt.

    Being a Minnesotan, I'm wondering if you're a Minn farm gal? As one of the resident farmers, here, I am curious as to the artist? Perhaps Bonnie Mohr, though I don't think it's quite her style.


    I have a lot of nice artwork, some by Bonnie. And many of other styles/types/subjects. Though in recent times they have lost the favourite status to this one ..........

    Though not for everyone, it reminds me of what I've achieved and inspires me to keep challenging myself onwards to greater things, be it quilting or other things in life!! :)

    My favorite is a cheap picture I bought years ago depicting a hillside and one lone scraggly tree silhouetted against a blue sky. I don't know why, but it speaks to me.

    As for that "Angelus" painting, I love that too. I remember seeing it all through the year in my fourth grade classroom. The only reason I know its name is because it said so beneath it.

    I got this one from a Ducks Umlimited auction a couple of years ago. It has special meaning to me because it reminds me of Leadline class with my Dad. He says the same thing everytime he is over.

    Love the cows! My favorite in my house is a framed silk embroidery picture from Japan. I inherited it from my MIL a few years ago. She said it was very old.

    I have artwork from NeNe Thomas she's a local artist of Oklahoma City, she paints some of the most beautiful paintings of fairies. Then we have some beautiful seacoast paintings over the fireplace.

    I have a German painting, head and shoulders of an old fashioned. stocky older red headed man whom I call the Burgermeister. Almost life sized with a flat hat, and he looks solid and 1800s. But on the back it says it was made in the early/mid 1940s near Berlin. I love him, he looks like some pictures my German Grandmother used to have. I got him at a library silent auction. When I learn to post pictures I'll show it. He's very dignified, might even be of a German Officer, since it must have cost more to have his portrait painted than the regular German could afford at that time and place in war time.

    I love the masks and your right the picture goes perfectly with them. I never would have thought of doing it that way.

    I have the 4 seasons panels of flowers done in Jade with filigree resin frames. I love them although they were a pain to hang. I've tried repeatedly to get pictures but they won't turn out.
