As you may have noticed, color is an integral part of my paintings. Years ago, in my Interior Design coursework I found that color is so important that I spent 8-9 months studying about the way color influences and affects us in our daily lives. Anyone who has visited my home knows that there is color everywhere and I am always changing it as new paintings are completed. I wouldn't recommend this approach unless you are showing off a collection on a specific wall.
Many of my friends and clients are afraid of choosing colorful art for their homes and offices. When you find that piece of art that you just can't live without, don't shy away from making it the focal point in the room.
Please comment if this is helpful.
Here are a few tips on how you can make it fit in with your other more neutral pieces.
Which way do you prefer to hang your canvas or cradle paintings or prints--framed or not?
I have preferred to frame my aluminum prints, but they can be hung with a special mounting on the back but be sure to add foam core to keep the aluminum from flexing.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
