Who are these people looking at me when I come home? The eyes watching me as I walk around. Are they staring at me or looking out for me?
What do you think about hanging portraits of people as art that are not your own family? Is the thought of it creepy to you? Is it more about buying pieces of art for the look? Do you have portraits of people hanging in your house of people that you don't know?
This has me thinking. I was looking around my house tonight and the eyes of both of these portraits met my eyes with a blank stare. Who were these people? Where did they come from? Where did they live before they came to live with me? I mean I guess you could start thinking about this with anything used that you move into your house. My house is filled with antiques and things that I have found traveling. Makes you wonder and think about the stories and history behind each piece.
Art is very personal. I was drawn to each of these portraits and feel like I almost "rescued" each of these portraits to come and live with me and my house. What kind of art do you have around your house?
