Portraiture

I'm head over heels for the larger-than-life portraits in these two spaces. I love the Native American man but I'm certain an enlarged black-and-white family photo would have the same transformative impact. Do you prefer these over a more traditional gallery wall?

i don't think i really prefer one or the other. but if there is one just really great picture, i think this is a great way to display it.

I'm loving the oversized images but still love a gallery wall too- I've already done the gallery wall and did pick up a few oversized frames too... it'll be fun to see how they turn out. Have a great day! xo

I'm not sure if I prefer one over the other, but I do think picking out one great shot like this makes it more accessible. I think for most people it is a lot easier to choose one photo and one great frame to make a big statement than to organize a gallery wall. I've had more than one phone call from girlfriends (or my mom) trying to put together a gallery wall and totally melting down in the middle of the process.
These images are really gorgeous!

Love the statement that a large piece of art makes...fabulous!

Art is clearly on both of our minds!

I love anything art! Small, large, old, new, famous, totally unknown. But a over-sized b/w piece is always fun for the drama effect.

A warm hug to you!

Hi there! Hope this comment finds you sans snuggie ;) I love them both...but I think I lean towards "larger than life". Thanks for stopping by my blog!
