So we have been in our new place for about two months now and I feel like I am still getting settled.  Many of the bedroom walls are still bare, and I am still working on getting the living area sorted as well.  Since I last shared photos of the apartment, I made a fabric basket and unpacked the last three boxes into it.  So that made a big difference.  The project I decided to work on this week was getting our artwork matted and framed so I could hang it and fill out the empty places on our walls.  We still need some artwork for the bedroom (the decals we had in the last apartment were great, but a bit expensive and labor intensive since we are only here for a year).
Anyway, I bought a sheet of mat board from the Village Center for the Arts in New Milford, CT when I was visiting my mother, some wood moulding from the hardware store, and threw together some frames.  I'm really happy with the results.
I got this really awesome poster at New York Comic Con last year from the artist, Thomas Gianni.  You can check out his website here.  I painted the mat black and the tapered edge copper and painted the frame copper to pull off those elements in the poster
I also got this cool Doctor Who poster at NYCC.  It is a copy of the painting van Gogh paints in Vincent and the Doctor.  I chose to paint the frame and beveled edge a metallic TARDIS blue.
I also framed this painting I had in my childhood bedroom,
and this map of Rome for above our dining room table.

I'm slowly filling the gaps, but I imagine I'll have more art to share in the near future.
