    Question Can I say so ? version II

    I wonder what the difference in sense is between the following 2 sentences.

    1. My grandmon has her grandson's drawings hanging all over the house.

    2. My grandmon has her grandson's drawings hung all over the house.

    Thanks again.

    not a teacher

    1 is continuous, it refers to the action/state which is on-going.
    2 refers to the action (hanging of picture) which has been completed.
    They both mean the same thing of course.
