Hanging Art On The Walls Of My Home

People often lament they can only hang art on the walls of their home once they can afford to buy a few pieces that they like, but I have never felt limited in this manner.  I love to draw and paint, so I create images for the walls of my home which I hang up myself.  Creating your own art work is a budget friendly and fun way to add a bit of color to an otherwise boring space.  However, I tend to love color, so people who prefer more monochromatic tones would probably prefer to create illustrations in those shades.
