home & heART: Listen to the Voice in Your Head

Kathy Stubblefield has two Richard Kelso landscapes in her home. The first is a rolling Southern landscape in the daytime, which reminds her of her grandparents' farm and warm childhood memories. Collecting art that serves as reminders of old times and inspires us to seek new experiences, as well. 

What drew you to this piece?
It looks like a Mississippi landscape. This painting could have been painted on my grandparents' farm. I have seen that sight before. 

What emotions or memories does it elicit?
It takes me back to my childhood and being with my grandmother (Mammy). I feel love and happiness when I look at the painting.

How do you choose where to put art in your home?
I have a place that needs something so I look for a piece of art to make the place complete.

Why is collecting art important?
I think art makes your life more interesting- more enjoyable.

What advice do you have for people looking to buy art for their homes?
Listen to that voice in your head.

 

A good tip for multiple pieces with similar size and shape is to stack them like Stubblefield has done here on a narrow wall. This draws the eye up and creates height in a room.
