My first piece of art
I have pictures of my kids up all over the house – we have a couple canvas prints in the living room, an entire stairway dedicated to pictures of our family and close friends, and other prints spread through out the house. And while I love the pictures of the kids – I want a little diversity when it comes to my art. My good friend who owns Birdhouse Interiors and Birdhouse Collectible is a huge advocate for original art. She is always encouraging me to use my talents as a photographer and create art pieces out of them (and she means beyond the shrine of my children). So after tirelessly searching for an art piece that I really loved (and could afford) I decided to go through some of my own pictures that I have taken. I decided on this one and will be hanging it in a black frame that my dad and I made. This picture is of the Beetison house in Ashland. I am fascinated by it and have done a few photo shoots out there. The house was constructed in 1874-75 and has such a rich history.
