Last year, in a Living with Art post called “Picture-Perfect Porch,” I hung a canvas outdoors. The results looked like this:
A year later, I am happy to report the canvas is in great shape. It has not been stolen, ripped, ruined, or pecked to death by Hitchcockian birds. Sometimes – okay, one time, but humor me – visiting repairmen even ask to take pictures of it. That’s pretty fun.
What is less fun, at least contextually, is that yellow chandelier, which originally matched the shade of the door. Now that we’ve repainted, the yellow looks out of place. I wasn’t at all sure what I wanted to do about that until I received this beautiful art doll in the mail this week:
Immediately, I had an idea, which was to put her in a bottomless cage and display her on the porch!
I love the new display, which is extra-fun insfoar as it reveals itself the closer you get to the house. I also love the new cushions. But I love the doll more!
