Three Prophets In My Living Room

LivingRoom1
LivingRoom2

Ever since I first conceived of these three prints I pictured them hung like scrolls above my sofa, so this week I mounted three artist's proofs in a scroll-like way. I used two pieces of flat-with-rounded-edges moulding and some little screws to sandwich the prints and added some maroon cord for hanging. As my friend illustrator David Pohl said to me, "If you built it, they will come." I'm happy to have such good company in my living room with me.
