In the world of art there is a vast array of art styles and types. We as a people tend to find a particular style that we like, someone else sees our display and copies it, and before long a once-unique look has become a fad. In time it can become overused and yesterday’s history. Sadly, this could be said for Windberg, and even for Thomas Kinkade.

Another overused art item is the motivational piece. These are the art pieces that depict everything from soaring eagles to sailboats on perfectly still water. They include words or phrases such as Courage, Patience, Power, Success, Love, Hope – and the list goes on and on.

Focus - One Key to Selection of Art PiecesWhile one motivational art piece in an office or home is beautiful and meaningful, having too many of them borderlines on overused and, to the extreme, downright silly. I have been in office buildings where, literally, there are 10 to 15 motivational pieces displayed in one area. Starting at one end of the hallway there is “Believe”, followed by “Power”, then “Patience”, then “Soar”, then “Listen”, and by the end of the hall I think the next one should be “Confused” – and then very last, “Focus!”

Whether planning for your home or your office, you can create a much more appealing experience for both you and your guests by keeping the motivational art piece in one specific place to express one specific message. It means more and will certainly have more impact – and instead of surrounding it with clutter, you can put real art where art needs to be.

Especially for our residential clients – If you’d like to work with a professional who offers expertise and listens to your ideas and input, consider our free, on-site Art Consultant service.
