Art from a snapshot

Our home improvement projects continued this weekend as we reassembled the guest bedroom for an honest-to-goodness overnight guest! We still need to paint the trim, but it looks pretty good anyway, now that the curtains are hung and the bed is put together. Pictures to come.

Our dining room looks about a bazillion times better, too. One of my oldest friends is a very talented artist who wanted to give us a painting as a wedding present. We took a long time to decide what the subject should be, but when Riece saw my photos from Paris, he zeroed in on this image of the chapel at Les Invalides, and we all agreed it would be perfect:

The painting was delivered Tuesday while we were in the city, but because we rarely seem to be home at the same time as our neighbors (who hold onto our deliveries when we’re away), we only got it yesterday afternoon.

I’d say it was worth the wait.

Now our dining room/living room have a focus beyond our obscenely large television.
