Living with Art is a series of interviews with artists that focuses on how to live with and care for art after you take it home. Take care of your investment while you enjoy it to the fullest! 

For this initial post, let me show you some of my own work and how my customers display it in their homes.

This is a giclee print of a watercolor and ink sketch. Only 7X5, (matted to 10X8), this small print needs a good, close look in good lighting for the details to be seen. It would be lost in a group of framed work on a wall, in a shadowy corner or up above eye level. The solution was to stand this piece on a small table with a taller reading light. It is close to the viewer and can be enjoyed each time my customer settles in with the paper.

In another home, this framed original also lives in a favorite reading area. Curves in the painted trees are echoed by the lamp’s forged curves. Colors are enhanced by the warm light, wall color and couch.
