So I own the full set of signed prints of Jody Lee's cover art from the herald mage books. I also have nowhere to put them. I haven't hung them since we moved to Berkeley really, but even if I will probably never read those books ever again, I'm not sure I want to let the prints go. They're really lovely and they're also very dark in colour scheme. With my trio of Metcalf's Avengers prints already making one bedroom wall nothing but dark frames and dark backgrounds, I don't know if I want to claim another wall and pack it full of dark prints with black mats. ...maybe I should just hang one and rotate it out every so often. ...or consider attempting a white mat again even if I don't think that worked well before.

Maybe also I should get back to editing alt tags and tweaking keywords.

SEO sucks and is boring, btw.

I have the opposite problem. I have all this wall space that I keep thinking needs pictures, but all I have are some Brandenburg wolf prints that I kinda grew away from. Hmmm, although you just reminded me that I have a fantasy print somewhere that needs framing...

Hee, right now I have one print in each room-- which solves the cohesion problem nicely. ;) I think if space really is at a premium, then rotating the prints is a good idea. Or maybe putting them in an usual room like the bathroom or kitchen?

You could always do a "gallery wall", with lots of artwork sort of swarmed together. But a lot of dark prints might make that a bit much... Maybe if it weren't in a bedroom! I've always wanted to do a gallery wall.

I'm jealous! :D

Also I have lots of empathy for the Limited Wallspace Conundrum; I have suffered with it most of my adult life. *commiserates*

If you ever do decide to let them (or just one) go... you could let the [community profile] last_herald_mage fen know? In the meantime, of course, you could come join us if you're still even marginally interested in the fandom. We're pretty quiet, and very laid-back!

random factoid: Jody grew up in the Berkeley area, we weren't close friends but hung out in many of the same circles in the 70s.

I was going to suggest a gallery wall as well - you can cluster your pictures thematically and separate each cluster a bit if you want to let the wall color in.
