What’s Hanging On My Wall

Fellow blogger Pat Bean asked “What’s hanging on your wall?” today, so I decided to show you.

I bought this at a student art show at Eastern Kentucky University sometime between 1968 and 1972. It’s signed Gold. If anybody knows (or is) this artist, THANK YOU for painting this. It’s given me many years of joy.

WRITING PROMPT: What’s hanging on your main character’s wall? OR Pick something that’s hanging on your wall and imagine a character who has the same thing on his/her wall but with a different feeling/meaning attached.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Very nice painting! There are so many things hanging on my wall I’d have a hard time picking.

    Wow, I think it would be a wonderful story to discover the artist or knows someone who knows someone. After so many years I’m sure “Gold” would be happy to know his or her work is bringing someone joy. A great painting.

      It stopped me dead in my tracks when I saw it on campus. Can’t remember what I paid, but you know if I bought it, it was practically free.
