Enrich Your Daily Life with Just One Addition

All Aflutter

The change of seasons provides the incentive to make personal changes: eat healthier, get more sleep or sign-up for an on-line class.   All are excellent but don't overlook  making a change to the space that surrounds you.

Is your space large, tiny, or somewhere in between?    Adding chairs, tables,  beds and such make it function.   But, what have you added to make the space to reflect your personality, inspire your spirit, and enrich your daily routine?

Original art can complete your space and fill your life.   It all begins with one piece of art.  Consider adding just one work this season.   It can be big or it can be small but add something to the wall above your dining table or to the shelf above your bed or anywhere in your space where you spend time.

Set you budget (art comes in all price ranges) and begin the search in your local community.    Art galleries, art fairs, school art departments, and art exhibits in public spaces are all excellent locations to explore.  Be open to all types of art as you may be surprised with your preferences.

Once you have your "short-list",  narrow your decision by checking the portfolio of additional art by the artist, doing an on-line search and contacting the gallery or artist with any questions.  Often art can be taken home to see exactly how it looks in your space before the sale is complete.

Your search is truly a treasure hunt so enjoy the process.  The reward will be a work of art that you treasure for years to come.

This season enrich your life with just one work of art.
