And I should add, I'd love to see that Berens on the wall if you felt like taking a shot of that.
I actually already had one kicking around from when I shot stuff around the house last year.
I just didn't want to overwhelm the thread with my nonsense. Here you go...

Well, you're right. That's just nonsense. You should just send that one right over this way.

Seriously, very nice.
Very nice. Love when I see some good creepy works in people's collections. Sometimes the creepy stuff is the best stuff.

Had a family visitor a few weeks back tell me that some of my art is "downright morbid". I liked when they said that.

Congrats!

While I'm not crazy about the Berens piece, everything else is top notch! Your living room looks great.

That's part of the joy of seeing people sharing their art (for me). Always so many pieces that I'd never collect myself, but I do love seeing it all.
And having been at it for 20+ years now, I'm very selective and happy with the pieces that hang in our home. I learned a long time ago to only buy the work that speaks to me on a very personal level. Part of the charms of living with works of art on the wall. Those rewards can be tremendous.

Just a few more for now...

Ray Caesar
La Chambre
30" x 30" image on UltraChrome

Joyce Tenneson
Angel with Lit Wings
16" x 20" cibachrome print

Kent Williams
Stacey Wearing Foul Weather Mask
40" x 40", oil on stretched canvas.

Dave McKean
Vampyr
40" x 40" x 4" Mixed media. Part of the Nitrate series.

This one is one of those pieces where the experience of seeing it in the flesh is very different from any photo capture or book publishing. The sticks and leaves are from Dave's garden, the layered plaster, resin, varnish, collage and paint can't accurately be described. It is a thrill to stand in front of.

I thought it looked like ROA but I didn't think it really was. Very nice! Love it.

When you get tired of looking at it hit me up. Maybe I won't be poor then. :clap:

Most of his work is on found objects, even found paper, so this one is a little peculiar. Maybe that's why it looked a bit out of place.

Either way, thrilled to be adding it to my collection, as I've been looking for quite some time.
