Hot or Not? Artistic Solution for Non-Working Fireplace

Hot or Not? Artistic Solution for Non-Working Fireplace

We've sung the praises of artist Ann Wood before. She is now creating custom paintings of roaring fires, which are sized to fit in any ornamental fireplace, and offered through Partners and Spade. We actually think this is a cool idea, and wish we could afford the Ann Wood original, but the starting price of $1,500 is prohibitive for us (recession or no recession). So we're filing this away as a great DIY project.

We spotted Ann's fireplace on The Moment where most people didn't like this idea at all, so we wanted to see what you think. Survey after the jump.

We don't really like the way the fireplace is hung a foot off the ground...

You can see the Ann Wood painting in person at the Partners & Spade boutique at 40 Great Jones Street in New York City.
