A fine art collection is not complete without at least one figurative painting. The natural connection with landscape and the structural statement of still life are uplifted by the consciousness of the human form. Art conveys emotional depth and beauty, and with the expressiveness of a figure’s stare or the drama of a subject’s pose, elements of our own sense of joy, peace and celebration fill our surroundings.

Certainly nothing in a home evokes more personal flare than a portrait. However, one should not be confused by portraiture when selecting a figurative work of art. Too often, new collectors deny themselves the opportunity to bring home a painting that lifts their soul simply because it bears no resemblance to themselves or a family member. By breaking free of any pre-conceived “rules” that in actuality do not exist, you will embark on the magical path of creating your own personal sanctuary.
