Three Great Reasons to Bring Art into the Workplace - And How to Do It Art has been an important part of public spaces for centuries. Whether it is a colorful mural or an imposing statue, art can make a splash and leave a big impression on its viewers

The energy of a show is contagious!

by AnnieSteiner , December 9, 2014—12:00 AM

I recently participated in an Open House, in the building where my studio is located. A few days before the show, the building was a true beehive. Everybody was busily getting their studio ready, displaying their latest work. You could feel the excitement, and the energy was invigorating

Welcome to Pictures Of Ireland. This photograph was taken at Tullydermot Falls in Swanlinbar, County Cavan. It took a few wrong turns to find the Falls but eventually we found them up the road heading towards the mountains

Tim Painted a Vermeer

by myart_mylife , November 22, 2014—12:00 AM

Everybody assumes Vermeer was an absolute genius. Everyone assumes he was an artist with such gifts and such vision that none could ever match him and his work. For the most part, I believe that is probably true

Don't Let Scammers Get You Down (Woe is Me!)

by JodyNoelle26 , November 18, 2014—12:00 AM

Hello everyone. How are you all? As for me? I am very well. Thank-you. You probably don't remember me, but I used to write a blog here on years ago. It was a rather crazy time for me. I was a few years younger then and quite full of ...shall I say it? I shall: piss and vinegar

Timeless manual focus lenses

by alanrwcampbell , November 14, 2014—08:19 AM

Rocks at Ballintoy Harbour

This piece I literally just finished is third in a series of abstract Jester paintings I've been working on this month. I have been an abstract painter since 2010 as a way to grieve the death of my Mother in 2009 and for me, painting is what I want to do but I also have to do

Baby Panda Collage has just been juried in to the prestigious 25th Wildlife in Art Show


by MILLIEGIFTSMITH , September 23, 2014—12:00 AM

I named this abstract "A NEW SONG ". I painted it as a video. It is on youtube now. Since my husband died in May, I have changed my life style. I moved home and have a new studio. When trials come , I have the LORD to lean on and help me through it all. It gives me a new song in my heart. My painting has been another help to me
