Most likely you have not, LOL!
BUT, here you are and now you get to see my abstract version of an underwater circus.
This might take a leap of the imagination but look closely and you will see what I'm talking about. The bright colors, movement and indistinct faces will all lead you there.

Art in the Workplace does more than just make it look nicer.
In fact, the impact of office art is often underestimated both in home offices and larger workplaces. Splashes of color in a painting can alter the mood of a meeting room or a piece of unusual artwork can provide a talking point in a bland corporate space. Placed correctly, office art can provide the inspiration to keep people productive even when they are working on “boring” tasks.
But can artwork have a direct impact on employee productivity or wellbeing?
It seems the answer is yes. Viewing artwork, particularly realistic nature scenes, helps workers restore mental energy and reduce stress. Unsurprisingly, both of these effects boost brain performance. Seeing nature images in artwork has also been linked to lower levels of anger in workplaces.
Art is also often used as a conversation piece which makes your company more inviting. …
Inspiring and interesting artwork creates talking points, stimulates discussion and encourages innovative thinking.

Yin Yang are two halves that, together, represent a whole.
According to Ancient Chinese philosophy, the principle of Yin and Yang is that these are two contradictory and inseparable opposites. A few examples of this include old and young, and female and male. The concept is applicable in every aspect of the world including nature, art and everyday life.
In interior design, the balance of Yin and Yang is often seen as the quiet or non active balanced with the active.
This artwork will bring balance to your interior designs, no matter which room you put it in or which interior design style you use it with.

Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them all around you. ~Jon Bon Jovi
Do you believe in miracles? Or do you see them as fantastic things that are not actually real?
Is a miracle a person flying on their own and just levitation or is the miracle flying in a plane?
Do you have to do it on your own for it to be amazing.
Is a miracle something that only happens in the realm of limited imagination or is it something that we all take for granted and consider ordinary?
If you showed a cell phone to someone 200 years ago, would it be a miracle?
Or does once a miracle become ordinary, it's not a miracle anymore?
I think that we want things to focus on that we don't see as possible, rather than focusing on the wonder of just being alive and the everyday blessings found all around us.
Here are some miracles I believe in:
1. The earth itself and the fact that we are conscious and alive
4. Caterpillars coming out to become butterflies
5. Plants growing from seeds
6. Computers and technology
7. People loving others who have wronged them
8. Babies growing from single cells
11. Cell phones
12. Birds flying around the world and back
13. Chickens and Eggs
14. Sleep and Dreams
17. Animals that change colors
18. Random occurrences that are not random
19. Flowers that don't bloom every year
20. Things that exist that we don't see
21. The kindness of strangers
There are many, many more that exist, these are just the ones that come to my mind easily.
What about you? What have I missed that you believe in?
Or do you not believe in miracles at all...

Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity. ~Hippocrates
The energy in this abstract piece was channeled in order to create an emotional healing experience within color, light and textures.

Is it working, can you sense the transformation?

Someone messages you on on Slack, Discord or Directly to ask for advice on a project. Three new emails from a client pop up in your inbox. In the background, someone is talking about their kid going to the zoo. Would you still be able to focus while at work?
Many people are easily distracted at work and find it hard to focus.
So how do some people stay focused while others struggle to keep on task and get things done?
The answer lies somewhere between long practice and smart tricks that get us through the day.
Below are my BEST tips, tricks and strategies that I focus on every day to keep myself focused, productive and innovative.
AND yes, art is the #1 thing that helps me in my office.
1. Have a centering, statement piece of art that you draw inspiration from!
2. Use this art, and your work environment as a whole to get in the “flow” (and stay there).
3. Plan ahead for your day, before you start it.
4. Create an hourly work plan for your day.
5. Have a place to write down ideas that come up, so that they don't disrupt the steps above.
6. Keep your to-do list short, organized and up to date.
7. Set deadlines (and honor them).
8. Take small, meaningful breaks throughout the day to refresh your mind and move your body.
9. TURN OFF your notifications!
10. Only check email every 3 hours!

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. ~Maya Angelou

Is this art landscape scene real or is it just a fantasy?
Does this creature exist in real life or is it a figment of my imagination painted onto a fantasy canvas?
AND/OR does it matter?
For art to be beautiful, does it need to be real or is it just fine living in the realm of imagination?
The answer is obvious when it's an abstract piece we are talking about but what about landscapes or other depictions of actual places?
I know what I think but what about you, what do you think?

Intuition is something that everyone has but not everyone is in "tune" with it.
So how do you "tune in" your intuition? How do you get more in touch with the inner voice that guides you?
There are a number of ways to accomplish this, but the one that I recommend most is to meditate.
Sit quietly and listen.
Now it's not easy to sit quietly, especially with all the noise in our world today!
But it is possible and you know what helps?
A quiet room with an inspirational piece of art in it.
The perfect piece of art for this is my "Intuition" macro photograph. This piece was specifically created to tune you into your intuition.
Hang it on a wall or balance it on a ledge! Either way, put it in a room that allows you to focus. Or in a room that you want to find more focus in.
Either way, stare deeply into the soothing, very peri color tones and then close your eyes and listen...
