One of the things I love about our Adult Art classes at The Studio is that students get to know one another and feel comfortable sharing and asking for opinions on their work.  Recently in class Michele painted this fabulous abstract and as she was trying to decide what it needed to finish she consulted with the other students in the class for their opinions. (Logan is giving her thoughts in this photo.)  I love how everyone feels comfortable to ask one another knowing they’ll get several ideas and all will be given with encouragement.  Great work Michele…and everyone in the class for wanting to help all the students do their very best.  Keep painting!

My desk – where I write my blog every morning surrounded by art

I just ran across this article a few days ago and had to share it.  You know I loved this!!!

For years I have been saying that everyone should have ORIGINAL art in their  home…not just prints or posters.  This article gives  you “13 Reasons Why Art in the Home is as Important as a Bed”!  Well, yes!!!!   And, of course, I think #8 is the BEST reason.  🙂

And here are a couple of past posts where I share how I live with art.  Click here  and  here.  I’m sharing a few photos here that I just shot two minutes ago in my house.  This is how I live with art.  As you can imagine it’s everywhere…both mine…and other artists that I admire.  If you love art and want a lovely home then buy original art.  It’s not as expensive as you think.
