Living with Art

People who come visit me always comment on my colorful artwork. They tell me that the vibe is great in my place. I believe part of that is the art.

Yesterday, I cleaned my living room and rearranged the art on the walls. It has changed the energy up and feels good.

Do you have artwork that you have not hung yet? Isn't it time?

Treat Yourself to a Blank Wall Makeover

If you have a blank wall somewhere in your home, you may be feeling slightly down and depressed. Especially, if your blank wall happens to be an entryway into your home or the first thing you see upon entering any room in your house. According to Feng Shui expert, Nancy SanPietro in her book, Feng Shui: Harmony by Design, blank walls "can be very oppressive and give you a constant message of 'no hope regarding your future and personal dreams..... also minimizes and limits one's opportunities in life."

Hanging a painting such as the one pictured here can have uplifting and magical results. You will feel happier when you have something to look at that is pleasing to your eye and gives you a sense of wonder and joy.

Go to my online store now where you can order fine art Giclee prints at a fraction of the cost of one of my originals. Or, if you have to have an original, contact me at now.
