experiencing BIGGER

Friday, December 17th, 2010

I realized a while back that there is something special about those larger images on the wall. I bought a 30×40 canvas and hung it on the wall in sight as I sit at my desk. It speaks to me. It tells me to remember my youth, to take a deep breath, and to hug a friend. The colors and the light are something to behold. It is ART. It is powerful. And it is awesome. We experience larger images (especially ones that are practically life sized!). We can’t HELP but take them in and let them move us.

And because they are on the wall, they allow us to enjoy the memories DAILY instead of the few times each month we glance at them on a side table in the hall or (GASP!!!) tucked between the covers of a photo album. Wall portraits are magnificent. I have them staring at me from all over the room in our (NEW—COMING SOON!!) office and meeting space. (I can’t WAIT for you all to experience them too).

Purchasing Tip: when you’re thinking about what prints to order for YOUR HOME and how to maximize your budget, think about this: you will get so much more out of one large wall portrait than you can ever get from multiple 4x6s*. Same budget, just a little different mindset. Get something you can EXPERIENCE daily and make your investment in professional portraiture count.

*Gift prints for friends and family are a different story of course. 😉

More pictures to come in the next few weeks!!! Can’t wait to show you our new space in the new year!!
