It is FineArt, a big photography exhibition which is held every year in the month of March and which hosts a selection of photos of photographers from all over the world.

Shopping for a picture online. Why not?

You might have never thought about it before. Times change and new technologies make online shopping even easier than buying in a shop.

What are the advantages?

- I can select the onlines stores I'm interested in from home and I can learn about the style that best suits me. This makes it time-saving and convenient.

- In a real physical shop I will probably never find the variety that an online sales web can offer me.

An original painting, a very original painting, a unique painting

We sometimes use the word “original” when we want to describe that something, an object, a painting or a sculpture, has meen made by the author him/herself. Other times we say “very original” when we want to express the idea that we consider that the realisation or the conceptualisation of such object is very innovative or different from what we are used to.

When we say something is “unique”, what we are describing is an object that cannot be repeated, and what we mean is that we won't find another one which is exactly the same.

In art, the word “original” is understood as something that has been made directly by the creator of the piece of art. In other words, the original would be the mould of the idea developed by the artist.

A modern painting in my bedroom

What painting could I hang in my bedroom?

 

The bedroom is possibly the most appropriate place to hang one or several paintings. If you have decided on the style you like, as we have already commented in the previous article what kind of painting should I buy, I recommend you chose a painting that transmits calmness. For the bedroom, being as it is a place for rest, it is advisable to chose a painting that gives you a sense of intimacy. It doesn't matter whether the colours are bright or pale, the important thing is that the composition expresses an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.
