ART does NOT have to match your sofa or draperies

"Blue Tree" 
Hi everyone, just finished reading a similar blog title post today and this phrase came to mind as it seems to be the biggest concern when potential clients are considering buying my art these days.  Quite honestly, 'sofa and drapery art' is not the kind of artwork that I  want to create but I am willing to make some adjustments if the colors are vibrant and if the client will agree to allow me some measure of artistic freedom while using them.  Don't get me wrong, I love it when my art perfectly 'fits' with someone's home decor color scheme, but let's be honest, how important is it to be an exact color match with your sofa, walls or drapery fabric? I previously struggled with this issue and discovered that I preferred to have a background color on my walls to allow me the freedom to display the things that I love.  Now that I have my background walls, and after eliminating my draperies, I discovered that I can make anything work if I love it - and I mean LOVE it ! Please believe me, when you love a piece of art, you will know it, and you will also figure out a way to display it so that you can enjoy it everyday.  So go out and find a piece of art that you absolutely LOVE !
