For the past two years, Bill and I have been trying to figure out a safe, economical way to transport a large (4'x 4') painting from his parents' house in Michigan out here to California.
Finally, we got a box big and sturdy enough and good quote from, of all places, FedEx and we are the new proud owners of this painting! Yay!
It's an abstract-y sort of collage-y painting of scenes from a hockey game. Bill's uncle's friend painted it. Unfortunately, we don't know his name. (The artist, not Bill's uncle. We know Bill's uncle's name.)
As you can see from this next photo, it fits perfectly in our living room, which is part of why it's so exciting. With high ceilings and a gigantic couch (10' long), we definitely needed something big for this wall. And we got it!
Of other crafty note in this photo, I made the pillow in the center of the couch and Bill painted the walls. Whee! Crafty!
