Hung well / Colgado bien

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

The hanging and basic rearranging have been done. A part of me would love to start all over again (and paint the wall) but another part of me says, “Oh, let’s just enjoy it all for a bit.” Of course, there’s the new cat tree (and both cats at the moment waiting for the next treat). All part of the art.

I love the frame job. The original drawing is approx. 12″ x 12″ (30 x 30 cm). If you live in the area and are looking for an excellent professional framer, stop by Marco y Frame on Avenida Nuestra Padre Jesús Cautivo, 11, Fuengirola. You should hear our English GPS pronounce that address. We have been known to drive around the block a number of times just to laugh at her mispronunciation.

It’s a Costa del Sol sky today. Blue, clear, and sunny. Sailboats and jet skis are out. People are getting settled on the beach. The life guard stands are open for business and green flags are flying indicating calm seas safe for swimming. Flowers are in bloom everywhere. Summer is kicking into gear.


Se han realizado el colgado y la reorganización básica. A una parte de mí le encantaría empezar de nuevo (y pintar la pared), pero otra parte de mí dice: “Oh, disfrutemos todo un poco”. Por supuesto, está el nuevo árbol para gatos (y ambos gatos en este momento esperando el próximo regalo). Todo parte del arte.

El dibujo original es de aprox. 12″ x 12″ (30 x 30 cm). Si vives por la zona y buscas un excelente enmarcador profesional, pásate por Marco y Frame en Avenida Nuestra Padre Jesús Cautivo, 11, Fuengirola. Debería escuchar nuestro GPS en inglés pronunciar esa dirección. Se sabe que hemos dado la vuelta a la manzana varias veces solo para reírnos de su mala pronunciación.

Hoy es un cielo de la Costa del Sol. Azul, claro y soleado. Los veleros y las motos de agua están fuera. La gente se está instalando en la playa. Los puestos de salvavidas están abiertos para los negocios y ondean banderas verdes que indican mares en calma seguros para nadar. Las flores están en flor por todas partes. El verano se está poniendo en marcha.

• Yesterday in the neighborhood, under cloudy skies.
• Ayer en el barrio, bajo un cielo nublado.
• Today in the neighborhood, under blue skies.
• Hoy en el barrio, bajo un cielo azul.

      I’m really happy. I can’t believe I waited this long to do something about it.

    1. Bob:
      I, too, love the wall color, but it’s faded and patched and needs to be refreshed. You should see what’s behind those prints.

  1. They did a great job on the framing, and the drawing goes well with your colorful plates. (And I too love the color of the wall.) Who’s that nekkid man? 🙂

    1. Steve:
      I loved the color of the wall, but loved it more in its original shade. It’s been painted twice. The dark color doesn’t survive the sun for long. Plus, I love to rearrange, so there are a number of patches of different shades. The nekkid man is called “Crucifix” and is by San Diego photographer Jeff Palmer. We bought at a silent auction in the ´90s for San Diego’s Gay Center. The model stayed at our hotel (serendipity):

  2. I really like how the framing came out! Your wall of artwork is beautiful and I like that lavender color. Most of ours are boring white.

    1. Kelly:
      The color was more eggplant at the start. The sun does a number. The rest of our walls are “papyrus.”

  3. The picture and the frame look great with the other art!!!!! Aren’t you proud? The nude male print was always one of my favorites.

    I always thought I’d look great hanging in a museum, provided I was well hung of course. Not crooked.

    1. Mistress Borghese:
      Wouldn’t you just love to see your portrait in a museum? Of course, you’d be well hung.

  4. A very timely nudge that we need to get out framed work up on the walls! I wanted to get some re-framed,but that’s an expense that will have to wait.Love the street art too and that sweet little Vespa parked by the big, brutish bikes!

    1. dinahmow:
      I was so used to framing prices in the States. New York for my mother, big cities around the country for us. This custom framing cost €36 including acid-free matt and mounting and non-glare glass! Maybe you should plan a framing trip to Fuengirola.

    1. Laurent:
      Thanks. It’s not our ideal but the location and view make up for the limitations.

  5. Hiding your talent from us is a no-no! If you have more please slide a few of them into your next instalments!

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      Thanks. We’re both enjoying it. I have to stop and admire every time I walk by. If only I could finally find my inspiration to start drawing daily again.

Please share your thoughts...
