Living with your own artwork

It’s no surprise that I love “stuff,” and as an interior decorator, I have amassed quite of a bit of it. Some days it feels like too much, and other days it looks like there’s room for just one more piece of something.

So the question is, how many of you fellow artists decorate with your own artwork? Can you live with it without critiquing it every time you look at it?

Personally, I can live with my own artwork, as long as it isn’t a focal-point piece. In fact, I rather enjoy having pieces around me that I have spent time making. They’re like old friends, very faithful and familiar old friends.
