Impulse buy

Just came back from an Arts & Craft show. Here's our impulse buy (the art not the table).

would you like an honest opinion, or a pat on the back?

I've seen your past critiques ... go ahead, it's not as if I painted it and trust me you won't hurt my feelings. It's not everyone's type of art, however I thought it looked pretty good against our newly painted wall.

I like that quite a bit. You have a really small table though.

I think it looks great against your red wall. BareRider said the table is small, maybe so, but if it's a good enough size for your needs, then that's swell.

I like that style art....very nice and they match your wall colors well.

I think I would hang the yellow one on the yellow wall rather than have both next to each other. Then again my girlfriend says I have no sense of style/decoration.

Yeah, it's definitely a small table (5 feet long) but it weighs a ton. We have a small dining room so we were limited with the size of table we could use. There's only the two of us so for most occasions it works.

Thanks. It freaked me out a bit when I came home one day to find the wall painted red. But my wife is the one with the artistic eye. She's also the one that spotted these paintings. I wouldn't normally pick these out for myself, however they looked great once we got them up on the wall.

My wife says "he knows nothing about decoration" In your defense I thought you had a good point until my wife trashed it.

Great art should not match your furniture.
