Across from our dining room is a wall that was called The Gallery Wall on the floor plans for our house. It's a large wall and we have 11 foot ceilings in our home. After our trip to Europe 2 years ago I had my photo from the Eiffel Tower put onto canvas. I had already had the smaller Ranunculus flowers on canvas. I would always take advantage of the free 8 x 10 offers when they came around. So we decided to start a wall of canvas from our trips.
I write the place and date on the back of each canvas and put my initials too! You will see at the top is a leaf with grapes from the Vineyard we visited. The cloud photo from our return trip from Vegas a few months ago. The sunflowers are from our drive from Paris to Italy. The pier is from the lake where we spent a lot of summers with our children at my dads cottage near Antioch, IL. The wild flowers are from Hyde Park in London.
I wish you could see this wall in person because it is stunning. I have taken numerous pictures time and time again yet I just can't capture it's beauty in my photos.
This one is not from a trip but I love the way it turned out. I purchased this adorable wine glass and had taken this picture and put it on Instagram. Well a few weeks later I was washing the glass and the decals came off! I couldn't believe it. Of course the glass was returned and I certainly wasn't going to replace it with another one so when I got another offer I decided to put the Instagram picture on canvas. I'm so glad I did because I love the saying and needed a way to preserve it for myself!
