Hill Country gallery wall

Lili Pell - Partly Cloudy with Spring GreensOur new home has an expansive gallery wall. I knew I had to fill the wall with properly scaled and arranged artwork or leave it blank. A spattering of random pictures Hubby & I like would not do the space justice. A design story about supersize beach posters inspired me to think about a supersize photograph of our landscape in the Hill Country. When I ran this idea by Hubby, he began an internet search for large Hill Country landscape paintings. He discovered local artist Lilli Pell and spoke to gallery owner Rob Pitzer Saturday evening, and we were on our way to Wimberley, Texas, to see “Partly Cloudy with Spring Greens” the next morning.

gallery wallOur completed gallery wall features our Lilli Pell original. Also grouped: Pretty still life painting signed by one of Hubby’s relatives (we need to learn more about this to know the family’s heritage); Pair of Texas flags; Topographic plat map of Summit Springs.
While Hubby’s analytical approach to hanging art gives my right brain a headache, I have to boast that he knew how to locate studs to determine where to start with our showpiece and developed an impressive excel spreadsheet to calculate where to bang each nail. As his parents would say, “Good goin’!”
