Yesterday, as I was moving art and supplies in, I hung Weathered Fences #5 and #6 in place of the valance. They were hanging in the studio I'm moving out of, and I decided to hang them in my home studio since I like them a lot.
At first I had the painted/dark side facing out (below) but it felt too dark and overwhelming. I think I like it better with the back side facing out (above) because it's much lighter.
When I have time, I'll paint the white sleeve at the top to match the back so there won't be a boring and ugly white strip at the top.
I do need to make sure it looks acceptable from the outside of the house, which I hope it does. It looked great at street level at my old studio, but at my house it may or may not.
