    1. A French poster in a frame 'Jour de fete' (man with bicycle).
    2. Panda in a bowtie.
    3. 'On the promenade' by L.S Lowry. (My favourite artist).
    4. Illustrated poem 'The owl and the pussy cat' (Edward Lear).
    5. Two embroidered fish in a circular frame.

    I have pictures in my livingroom - oil paintings and lithographies - some of which I have inherited from my father, some won in art lotteries or bought myself. I love them all and I can't do without them.

    i have a black and white photo over the fireplace of my two children, a early black and white of my wife on the south wall, a mormon picture of christ on the eastern wall ( you know christ will come from the east at the end of time you know ) and an ancient woven forest scene i got in hiedelberg some fifty odd years ago on the north wall ( there are also several dust bunnies living under the couch where my collie sleeps )...and a green metal bhudda at the foot of the fireplace ( yes, suZanne..i typed "bhudda" ).

    Clearly you missed the 'panda in a bowtie.'

    Nice. Unfortunately, my cousin got all the artistic talent in the family.

    O, I wouldn't say all the talent. You certainly got a dollop of literary talent.

    Interesting thread.

    On my longest wall, I have a rustic metal sculpture piece depicting a classic Arizona desert scene with mountains, a rising sun and in the hills and foreground various sizes of saguaro cactus, about 25 of them in six sizes in a slightly 3D arrangement. While not a "picture", per se, it is art, I think it qualifies. I love this thing.

    Over in the computer corner, I have two Bev Doolittle lithographs. One is called "Woodland Encounter", and the other is "Three More for Breakfast". I love Bev Doolittle.

    And near the kitchen, I have a clock that rings the hour with classical music clips. It has parts that move with the music. Yeah, it's sort of kitschy, but I like it, and it was a gift.

    Nope, no photos, they're in my third bedroom that I've turned into an office.

    We have a Robert Bateman print (called flying High) as the main piece in our humble art collection which also includes a few pieces by relatives and one wall is a rogues gallery of family members.

    Good art truly does something to a home, gives it character, and no home is totally like any other.

    When we lived in Jerusalem, a man owning a restaurant invited us in and my wife admired a Rossetti painting. We were fairly well known in Israel folk music circles and he was taken by my wife's playing, said, it's yours! She cherished that painting, of course a print, of two women playing instruments with dancing girls in back, and still have it and others like it, in our music room. Lots of musical theme images, dulcimers, mandolins, and one of me and my son Kevin both playing the same guitar.
