For a number of people, the purchase of a piece of art is dependent upon a conversation with the artist. They want to understand what the artist had in mind, how the piece was created, why the piece was created and more. This they can only acquire from talking in person to the artist.
"Here are 10 guidelines that may help you place your newest art piece where it gives you constant pleasure every time you see it."
"Art appreciation is an on-going education and before you spend thousands of dollars you might want to make sure that you have some understanding of what makes good art and whether you will enjoy a specific piece over time."
Your home is “your place,” and that’s why decorating it to your liking is so important. You need to feel comfortable in your space! And, surrounding yourself with art you love will help you enjoy where you spend a majority of your time.
"All the people I know whose homes are greatly admired have been adding and changing the art on their walls and surfaces for years. They did not make a decision one day that they were going to go out and buy art for their home. They regarded art acquisition as an ongoing project."
Recently an article was posted on the Smithsonian.com “An afternoon of art may offer serotonin mood boost, and welcome distraction from chronic pain. “
“We know that art stimulates neural activity," MMFA director Nathalie Bondil tells CBC News. "What we see is that the fact that you are in contact with culture, with art, can really help your well-being."
I want you to use your home as a retreat from everyday life. I want you to always feel good about your home. I want you to look forward to the time each day when you return home and enter the front door of your home. I want you to have a beautiful home. I want you to enjoy your home as much as I enjoy mine.
This can be best achieved by art. Art on the walls, art on the floor, art on tables. Art on stands. Art everywhere!
Every day your family sees the art on your walls or on your tables. And it’s probably a safe assumption to make that the children pay little attention to what is on the walls.
On the other hand you have spent a good deal of time and money making your home as visually exciting as you can. How do you get family members, especially the children, to appreciate and enjoy the images on the walls?

"As keeper of Decorative Art in the Groninger Museum I was - and I still am - a professional collector. That means my approach is different from that of the private collector, who decides more emotional on acquisitions and acts according to his/her own fascinations. But sometimes an object smashes my intellectual distance and then it's love at first sight !"

"Art is, and probably will forever be, an integral part of decorating and making a home. What's not vital? Making the same art displaying mistakes that many of us have probably made at least once in our home-decorating histories. These are some of the most common art displaying mistakes that can be avoided."
