Our Happy paintings for a Happy Family

We did a series of 3 paintings for a happy family of 5. The couple is very friendly and we are inspired to make the paintings even more warm and cheerful to fit the interior. The corriodor is fitted with a joyful painting of the young master with the balloons and the most popular character in the house, Dopey, the dog.

How to Display Art

o When buying art remember that you are trying to personalize your home with art and accessories. You must decide what you like and what you can live with.
o When decorating try to repeat a color at least three times in a room.
Relate your art to its surroundings. Art prints placed about 6"-9" above a sofa will create a unified look.
o Cover two thirds of the space above furniture with one or more pieces of art to achieve proper proportion.
o Position artwork at "eye level" to look at the center of it from either a sitting or standing position.
o Vary the height of table top accessories for balance and interest.
o Create a formal look with symmetrical groupings of art. Create an informal look with asymmetrical groupings.
o Place mirrors so they reflect something beautiful. Use them to add dimension, expand space or reflect light in a room.
o Display art on easels to create interest in corners, bookcases or on table tops.
o Custom frame artwork to coordinate with room decor. Select a frame that compliments the decorating style. Select mat colors that enhance both the art and color scheme.

We just had quite a bash in our gallery last evening.

I have decided to start this journal to celebrate our experiences of putting beautiful art pieces together with their proud owners.

Please enjoy yourself while going through our blog and give us your earnest feedback.
