By Jove, I think I've got it

You may or may not remember my dilemma regarding religious art. As you may know, I am a believer. I'd like for my home to represent my beliefs but do not want to turn it into a shrine. In general, I am not drawn to most religious art.

This summer, I purchased a picture that satisfied both my religious and artistic sensibilities - Minerva Teichert's Christ in a Red Robe. Step one. I have not put it up for several months, because it needs a frame.

Then (last night in bed when I was really wanting to be sleeping but wide awake instead) I came up with this solution:

A metal bulletin board (from Ikea) and four small magnets create an instant frame.

I am quite pleased with the result.
