How do I hang my original painting?
The best place to hang an original painting is on a wall w, away from any heat source, not in direct sunlight. Away from areas of moisture or high humidity and away from ultra violet lights.
Naomi recommends two fixings per painting for large ones. Wall mates are her favorite for gyprock walls and they are available at Bunnings. You could also hire a handyman or professional installer
