I couldn’t wait a moment longer. When the newly finished wood floors were dry, I removed my shoes at the door and entered in socks only. In a glance, I devoured the entire living room; the place looked fantastic. It was spare, open, soft, and gentle, exactly how I had envisioned it. But when I looked over at the space above the fireplace, I knew what was missing. I had to create the perfect painting for the room, and it had to be a five-foot-wide ocean wave.
I think art sets the tone in a room. It’s a focal point and one of the most vital elements to create the desired mood in a space. A painting gives heart and warmth to a room. It is the ultimate accessory. When a painting of the glorious color of a breaking wave vibrates and the shimmering foam seems to vanish into the sand, the meditative perception of the ocean is recreated right in your living room.
