What is art? To me, it is the personal, visual expression of what is in ones heart, and mind. It is a beautiful, timeless expression of history, history of the times, and of the person. Art isn't a pricey framed picture to be hung on a wall, but an expression and a testimony of your heart and desires. True art will express something deeper, something more beautiful. More than a simple picture, it's another world to enter into within your dreams.

Picasso, which appeals to the pride of those who love to be different. Who love to think outside of the "natural". All unique, all appealing to a persons heart and interests. A wall can reveal your whole personality and outlook on life. A painting can be an investment of joy, to be treasured for generations.
Thomas Kinkaid, a modern day artist, well known, why is he so loved? People are dreaming of different surroundings, of better beauty. To see comfort, quaint, beauty in a sea of warm color and seclusion, enables you to dream.
Where does your heart draw you? Do you allow your eyes to manifest your heart? Art is an investment of unending personal satisfaction. Fill your walls with true art, representing you, and representing the heart of a man or woman poured out on a canvas, and fill your walls with meaning. Connecting to the inspiration of another and sharing it for years to come is a blessing to a household.
