Our family moved away from our hometown of Portland Oregon almost two years ago now. I can’t believe it has been that long. While we do enjoy where we are in Washington, we can’t help but feel a little homesick for what was familiar to us for all those years. When I saw this GORGEOUS gallery wrapped canvas by Red Letter Words, I knew I had to have one (it is found here on her website).
In our family, places like NW 23rd, Powells, Mt. Hood, Haystack Rock and the West Hills are words that we miss saying on a regular basis! Each of those places brings up a picture in our minds of a place we lived for most of our lives.
I want to be SURROUNDED by GOOD memories in our home. Subway art is a great way to give your family subliminal happy thoughts! You just cannot get that from a random piece of artwork!
We put our Portland canvas in the main hall between our kitchen and entry. I wanted it to be at the end of a hallway where we would be able to see the words regularly. We pass through this hall many times a day. Each time I see those words on the canvas it reminds me of places I’ve loved and special thoughts of days gone by. Suddenly my life doesn’t feel so disconnected, those places are still a part of who we are as a family.
Good times, good memories.
I love subway art with words from the past, uplifting thoughts, positive words or meaningful verses.
