Take a moment to evaluate why you chose the pieces you did.  Do you like the color palette? Does the composition draw you in? The figures or shapes? What kind of emotional reaction are you having? Do you have previous knowledge of the artist or time period? 

I want to encourage you to take 10 minutes and google the artists you chose and look at some of their other work. You just may end up really inspired!

I'm a big fan of adding fine art into the home. It adds sophistication, history, and intrigue. Oh and I'm just a giant art nerd but I really hope you enjoy our little research project.

I'd love to hear what you chose and why. How does it fit into your personal style?

Now go do some serious weekending!
