We've talked a lot about what to do. An arrangement of prints? A pair of antique doors? We finally agreed that the wall needed a painting - something abstract and BIG.
So, since I'm obsessed with the art of Atlanta up-and-comer Melissa Payne Baker (see my blog post here) I asked if she would be interested in working on a commission painting. I sent her measurements, some photos of the room and a general idea of what we were looking for. Could it really be this easy?
And just three weeks later (the girl works fast!) a big box arrived on our doorstep. I was in New York for the weekend celebrating my birthday, but sweet Stroud did an expert job hanging it and even texted me a picture. This is what I came home to this afternoon:
A weekend in New York with my best friend is pretty hard to beat (thank you Stroud!) but this painting might be my favorite birthday present. Thank you, thank you Melissa!
