How many pictures do you have on your walls? Do you have pictures of your children on the wall? Or do you only have pictures of sceneries? What kind of pictures do you have on your walls? I have a lot of pictures of my kids at varieous ages. From new born to adults. I also have pictures of sceneries and I have pictures my sister-in-law has painted. She is really good at it and she usually sells them but for family members, she just gives them to us as gifts. Do you know someone that paints and is really good at it?

there are some paintings on our walls, but not pictures. We just keep our pictures on the album. I like also making my own framed painting. I just buy the frame and put in nice picturen (not family pctures)and paintings. But I am planning that my parents small pictures be painted and hang on the wall for us to see them as theyre already in heaven.

I have pictures of my daughters on my walls, one of my father who passed away in 1993, and some pictures of mine and my husband's favorite animals. None are actually painted.

Most of the pictures that are hang on our wall are pictures of me and my family. There are 2 pictures of my hubby and me, pictures of my 2 sons and pictures of us family There's also a family picture on my husband's side and also a family picture on my family side. There is a picture frame of a rose and a picture frame of seven horses that hang on the wall of the living room. I dont know anybody in our family who has a talent in painting, but I know there is a cousin in my father's side who is very good in painting. He just paint once in a while and give the painting to his relatives.

I have a lot of pictures of my daughter. I also have ones of Mickey Mouse and Winnie The Pooh. We don't have a lot of pictures in our house on the wall, but we do have them on display in photo frames.

I am mostly minimalist; I don't really hang so much on my walls. However, I do keep so many pictures of our family, especially of my sisters and my only daughter. My sisters are absolute picture maniacs. In this digital age, though, most of it is in electronic form. I tend to like it more onscreen as the luminousity of the screen seems to lend "life" to the pictures. When I do get down to settling down to "my own house", I do intend to hang a few interesting ones strategically, and probably with some lighting to enhance the picture's own corner, and its overall contribution to my home.

I have lots of pictures on my walls.I have my family on my walls and on my shelves. I have tiger and other big cats along with giraffe pictures on my livingroom walls,bathroom and some in my bedroom also. I have biracial angel and childrens pictures in my daughters room and livingroom on one wall.The one in the livingroom is from Home and Garden and it resembles my daughter alot so I cant yet part with it in my livingroom. I get alot of crap cause its the only thing that dont go with all the tiger pics. I also have fairies in my daughters room. I wish I did know someone who could paint or draw to have them pain or draw my children.

When I had a house there was a long hallway downstairs. I literally lined it with 8x10's and 5x7 pictures of my kids and grand kids. I don't see them much, be ever time I walked down this hallway from the living room to the family room, I could see their smiling faces and just felt close to them and it sure did make my day1

I'm rather embarrassed to admit this, but we only have one picture hanging in our living room right now. We're in the process of remodeling and have gone down to bare bones around here. The only pic we have left up right now is a Charles Wysocki print--one of his cat paintings. I have all the family pictures in storage so they won't get damaged. I'm looking for some nice matching frames so everything will match when it's time to put them back up. My goal is to also get a really nice family portrait done some time in the near future so we can put it on the main wall in the living room. We also have some nice oil paintings that family members have done that I would like to put up. Most of them are of either other family members they have painted, or still life works.

I am a map fanatic and as it's my bedroom I have up all around the room maps of different places, mainly travel maps, you know like the underground or train maps. I used to design maps on my computer, I had an illustrator package which I used to spend lots of time on making, creating maps which I then got laminated and framed and put up everywhere. I do have a few calendars and pictures of my favourite actor up Leonardo Di Caprio on my walls, I know I'm a big kid at heart!

I have alot of pics on my fireplace mantle, my tv, my dresser and chest, nightstand. I have some on the walls but not alot. The pics that I display are of my kids and my family. I dont have any scenery pics and no one in my family paints but my two sons are constantly drawing me pics in school that they consider masterpieces lol. My kids rooms are covered with posters, bulliton boards and other stuff they consider cool.

I have made some really good paintings which are there on the walls properly framed. I also have mine , my husband's pictures and my children too but not on the walls but in almirahs with some artistic photo frames for all. I actually avoid putting up much on walls as i want them to give a clean and tidy look. Let all the dusting work be restricted to almirahs rather than on wallls.

I have art all over my house but as far as family pictures, I have one wall dedicated to that. The wall is painted sailor blue and all the pictures are in black frames. I don't like family pictures all over the walls for a couple reasons. One is I like to change out the pictures. I have a "collage" frame with all older pics. but my 8 x 10s get changed for the newest each time. The wall looks great and I love having it all in one place to look at. A whole family history wall.

We have our own paintings in a couple of places. I also have a wall of 4 framed mirrors. The only pictures I have on my walls are of my family and children. I have a bunch more that I need to frame and hang. I had other mirrors, pictures and artwork that used to hang on my walls but they were all destroyed in Hurricane Katrina.
