Focus a spiritual Abstract Painting Art to help focusing in life

Learn to focus on one thing. Energy spent on many activities will give diluted and average results. If you want to excel focus on one aspect and work towards it. Whether you are an artist or pursuing some other profession focusing on your task is very important.

Meditation and yoga help to keep the mind cool and relaxed. Professionals who are involved in creative work very strongly need to be focused to give good results. Most of the times our energy is drained and specially the artist tries very hard to produce some good works of art but it is not possible. Remember if the mind is going through an emotional turmoil then it becomes very difficult to make any art. For making good art one must be in the present moment. Keep all other thoughts aside and ..well 'just do it for the sake of doing'
Most of the times the artist is pressurized to produce works according to social demands and this is where the creativity goes down the drain. I know it is very difficult to not think about selling works but still more important is to preserve our identity. Because if this is lost the artist within dies and only what remains is a painter!!!

Art of Framing

Frames form a very important part in the presentation and display of paintings. Be it home or office or even an art  gallery frames are an essential part in the aesthetics of the painting. As we consider paintings as  a form of art even framing is an art.
Many times when we see some works displayed we are forced to see the frames and how the artists has brought out the highlights of the paintings with appropriate frames. The paintings may be of landscape, symbolic,still life or portraits it doesn't matter, as frames are required fro every work. The most important skill of framing is to bring out the best from the painting. Many experienced framers have an eye for details and immediately guide the artist on which frames would be appropriate for their work.
Frames are available in many materials and so is the cost of framing. Wood, acrylic, plastic, metal, and even other natural materials can be used for framing. The most important aspect of framing is to see which part of the paintings to highlight and which can be let go of. The experienced framer selects the best presentable form of the work to the artists and also gives suggestions on how to preserve the frames to increase their shelf life.
Cost of frames varies upon the materials used and from which framer. Every framer has different quotations and an artist must inquire about the budget for framing as this also amounts to a substantial figure. The framers are also available online. having individual framing websites or attached to art galleries.

Artist and the celebration

festival time is very busy. Try to see various display and decorations around. Festival season gives many creative ideas. Never try to copy anything. losing your originality is very bad. Just take only a glint of idea and develop own concept. I know most of the times it is very difficult to create original art. I have seen artists who follow certain ideas and pictures for reference get great works but am not satisfied. I take the road less traveled. May not be able to produce the most beautiful artwork but have the confidence to own the work wholly. Originality never loses its shine!
