  1. I liked it when you mentioned that art can give a great impression to your guests when they come over to your place. During my visit to Japan last year, I am very much interested in this Noh Mask that is one of a kind and very unique. I think it would be great if I could find a piece of art about it so I can place it on my wall and create a good impression on my guests.

  2. I agree that art will improve your quality of life as it relaxes and makes you happy when looking at it. My boyfriend’s apartment looks dull. I believe we should buy some paintings for the apartment. He likes the outdoors and animals. So I want to get him something that will make him happy when he looks at it.

  3. My husband wants to hire an artist to our daughter’s first birthday and I don’t know how I feel about it. I didn’t know how much original art can change a room and lift the mood of the room and everyone in it. Now that I read this article, I think I’ll let my husband hire an artist for the party so whenever we look at the painting in our house, we’ll always be reminded of the hard work and effort that went into that day.
