My new office has LARGE wall space that is just crying out for something on the bigger side. I have a Fra Angelico print and two photographs (Rome and Assisi) from my old offices, but they kind of disappear on these walls. While I might be able to group them on one of the walls, at least one of the two walls needs a larger piece.
So, faithful friends, I’m looking for ideas. I think the most economical plan would be to purchase a poster of a piece of fine art that I could get framed relatively cheaply with just a poster frame from Michael’s. So what piece of fine art should I choose? The sky’s the limit- I’m looking for your ideas. Well, I prefer something religious. But I’m really looking for your thoughts – don’t let the following stop you from suggesting something else.
Rembrandt’s Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee might be a front runner right now, mostly because I need to remember Christ is always in the ship, even if it seems He’s asleep. (and, let’s face it, partly because I like the guy throwing up over the side.)
But I don’t want to rush into anything, and there are so many great possibilities. I also have a print of our Cathedral by a local artist, so another possibility is getting that framed alongside a print (by the same artist) of my parish, St. Mary of the Seven Sorrows (which I would have to acquire, but I think the pastor could help me out with that!)
Oh, and my dad has this jewel back home — if I stole it from him over the weekend, it’s most apt given our current climate. But the Bishop might prefer something more refined and less cheeky.
So, friends, what do you think? Do I need a picture of the Blessed Mother instead? Or something that more directly relates to adult faith formation? And does anyone have an idea other than a place like allposters or Amazon?
