i’m still really a fan of the fun idea of portrait paintings popping up in unexpected places. i saw emily tweet about it last week and i really trust her taste, so there’s that. and then i realized that i had pinned a ton more images lately with this vintage vibe to share with you. i used to have a whole collection on my walls and then i needed a change, but i do like the notion of a surprise portrait here and there. they’re always conversation starters for one thing, and i just like the sense of humor they evoke. my dad always used to ask me “but who are these people?” and that just cracked me up — so I made up stories and family histories for all my portraits. just another way to add personality (literally) to your collections.
