Decorative Clothes Hangers

My mother-in-law had this old decorative clothes hanger for at least 30 years before I inherited it when she died 20 years ago.

 I've always loved it but didn't know just quite what to do with it.

 Recently, I noticed that Alisa Burke used clothes hangers to display lots of her artwork.

And when you are an artist, or an aspiring one, it can be quite expensive to frame everything you paint or make.

When I saw this post of hers, I knew immediately how I was going to hang a canvas that had been laying in my art studio far too long.

I unscrewed the metal hanger part which took about two seconds, and voila, had this most gorgeous hanger for my canvas.

A couple of staples and the job was done.

Well, almost--I've yet to press it and cut the little frayed threads off but that won't take long.  I should have done it tonight but got a "bug on" to get a post up about this.

You know how we bloggers can be.

Also the colors are not nearly this harsh--was shooting in artificial light.  I will probably retake these in more natural light as soon as we have some sunshine.  It has been days now and I couldn't wait any longer to shoot.

The canvas is based on Psalm 150.

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary;

Praise him in his mighty heavens.

Praise him for his acts of power;

Praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,

Praise him with the harp and lyre,

Praise him with timbrel and dancing,

Praise him with the strings and pipe,

Praise him with the clash of cymbals,

Praise him with resounding cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.
