Our house is a really small log cabin. It has wooden walls, floors and ceilings, so to add some color, we hang paintings. Of course there isn't much room for our small art collection.

But recently a local gallery had a sale. They sell paintings by the guy who played the Marlboro Man in those 50's & 60's ads, Edward Widmayer. Usually his oils are out of our price range, but here was an opportunity. It was like pulling an art heist: we showed up when they unlocked the doors and started hauling the paintings out to the car. We got 3 canvases for less than half the price of a single piece. We ended up with enough canvas to rig a ship--over 33 sq.ft!

Here's one that's 4' x 3'. It is so big, we had no wall space and had to hang it on a bookshelf--now it's a cabinet!



And even though our bathroom is only 30 sq.ft. (2.8 m^2), we jammed this 2.5' x 3.5' oil in there. Good thing it fit--plan B was to hang it in your house.



Well, we wanted to add lots of color. Even if you don't like the style, you have to admit: mission accomplished!
