    I have some nice wooden frames that someone has given to me. I don't know what sort of art to put on them. I think prints would be tacky. Rather than framing some random abstract painting, I'd like to be able to put something up that could be used as a conversational piece or reflect something about myself.

    Curious to find out what others have hanging on their walls.

    I have some old Rembrandt prints from the early 1900's my friend found for me. Work I've traded other artists, and most of my own stuff.

    All the artwork I have is reproduction (still hand painted), oil on canvas, versions of Rene Magritte's work. I have reproduction paintings of the following: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] And I have this one framed, but have yet to hang it up: [​IMG]

    we have a few old maps, a few old archetectural drawings, a small number of prints - 2 matisses and a few german expresionists, a few oil paintings from places we have traveled, a few oil paintings that my father did, 6 old african masks a shield and spears, a large wooden thai screen, a few embrodiered fabrics from different parts of the world, some indonesian and turkish shadow puppets

    we also have a huge, something like 4 meter by 2 meter, cloth tapestry map of the world on the wall of the hallway for the kids.

    I have a lot of my own photos on my walls. I have a number of various prints and works from unknown artists, but only one "real" piece of art. It is a Sergey Smirnov original. I love it! [​IMG]
