Mixed Media Art
Are you afraid of color? We recently had a dinner party and one of our guests exclaimed, “I love your house. It’s so bold and full of color. I wish I was brave enough to decorate this way!” That really struck me as odd….Do you decorate your house for “other” people? I certainly do not. I surround myself with things I like to feel and see on a daily basis. When I get up in the morning, the colors I like welcome me into my kitchen. I look at the miniature paintings that are perched above my sink and I smile. Moving into the living room, I am embraced by rich deep red carpets that caress my feet. I sit at my computer and enjoy the purple and yellow painting my Mother In Law painted right in front of me. I see hearts and flowers and portraits of my animals. They are all bursting with color and life!
Muted earth tones and pastels just aren’t my style. If they aren’t yours either, but you still decorate that way, you have to ask yourself why? So that the occasional house guest doesn’t ask too many questions or even worse…..judge you? Art is personal and I believe you should surround yourself with what YOU like. Feed your own soul! They can find their sustenance elsewhere…
