A place for everything and everything in its place

i recently got a copy of the latest Anthropologie catalog in the mail. As usual I drooled all over the pages of white washed barn wood, baskets and natural elements punctuated with pops of color and styled with their usual flair. And once again I couldn’t help but think that marketing my paintings in a real room setting could really have some merit. After all, if you’re buying a painting as part of your room’s decor, doesn’t it help to see the scale and overall feel of it up against some fab sofa and nifty accessories?

Thinking I will try to devote a couple of blog posts to just such a thing. Below is my first attempt. The lighting in my family room isn’t what it should be and I’m no photographer so that’s something I need to address. These two paintings are 30×48 each and were directly inspired by the cold days we’ve had this winter. But I love love love the simplicity of the compositions so all in all those winter days gave birth to something I plan to revisit on canvas again in the near future. Tell me what you think.
