Recently, I wrote about the importance of selecting the correct size artwork for a room. Here is the perfect example. Just look at how this newly installed painting completes this space.
Why it works:
- The painting takes up the right amount of wall space. The art should be the showcase, so give it prominence. The surrounding space should equal about 20% of the artwork on either side. This framed painting does just that.
- The painting pops off the wall, not blending in with the background. Art is a one-of-a-kind investment. Showcase it with complementary colors to allow it to stand out against the background. The granite fireplace and blue porcelain ceramics offer the perfect complement to the palette and subject matter of this painting: a landscape painting of an early morning scene.
- The painting is installed just above eye level. You should look up at the work just slightly. Installing the art exactly at eye level makes it appear as if it is positioned lower than it actually is. This painting checks all the boxes. It fits beautifully into this lovely home, it is the correct size, the imagery celebrates the local landscape, and it is framed to offset the space . . . .
Do you have a room you’d like to complete? I have picked out two new works from my gallery and featured them below. Contact me if you’d like to try one of them out in your home or office.
And as always, thank you for supporting my artwork. It means so much to me.
