New Art for the Atomic House!
This is not my house - though I wish it were! Just a nice image to pop up in Followers' Readers!

Oh, I've been waiting to do this post for a looooong time! A month or so ago, I came across the Flickr photostream of Veronica Diago and promptly fell in love with her images. She started a blog (Veronica Diago), which I follow avidly, and we've become blog buddies. It was her idea, sparked by a comment I made, to start the Paint Chip Fun Project. This is the third week of that project, and I've been sidetracked by other stuff going on, so I didn't get my piece done this week. Check out her blog for her new paint chip piece and some others she found on Flickr and wanted to showcase.
After waiting what seemed a very long time, her Etsy shop was opened! You can find all her art for sale here, and soon she will be offering prints. She is having a sale of 25% off her works through May 27 - that's only 5 more days, so hurry!
Well, today, I became the very proud owner of an original Veronica Diago!
This is what I got in the mail...my daughters were having a hard time understanding why I was squealing with happiness.
Carefully opening....oooh, it's very safely packed!
Here is a very hurried, therefore very blurried, shot of my dining room wall where I've been planning to hang a bunch of new art.
And here it is - MY "Gotham City"!!!
Just out of the box
And hanging on the wall. It's very difficult for me to get a good photo in my dining room because of very poor lighting.
A wide shot of the dining room to give you a better idea of what I'm going for. Soon, I will have an original Ebbo piece, and four Derek Yaniger prints I'm having framed. Now, I'm really wanting an original Tommy Kovac, Anthony S. (Pop Circus), and Jem 'n Tonic! Then, my art wall will be complete! (Oh, and I need matching chairs.)
