As soon as I hung my new Jean McKee palm oil in the stair parlor, I was perplexed. The arrangement just did not look right. Do not get me wrong as I love the trio together, but it seemed to me that the alligators atop the palm tree made little sense. But, does art placement really have to make sense? If you are me, it does.
I was also happy to have received an anonymous comment on the blog post:
“The painting is fab! If I may make a suggestion...try hanging your new one at the top. It would balance the weight and appear that the gators are under the palm. :) I really enjoy your blog and home. Thank you for all the fun laugh and "y'all's"!”
I wish I knew who wrote this comment, and I hope he/she sees that I too was unsure and not satisfied with the oil’s initial placement.
Yesterday, I finally rearranged its placement. Now, the palm hangs proudly atop the two alligators. Sense is now made.
What do you think?
Southern oils, y’all!
