HANGING PICTURES

Wall Decorating Idea

 

 

Hanging Pictures

Today’s wall decorating idea is about hanging pictures.
For sure…most pictures are hung too high.
To perfectly enjoy your artwork or photos, here’s the rule used by art galleries and museums.
No guess work…no extra holes.

57″ is Eye Level

Rooms Where You Sit – Hanging Pictures

  • Living/Dining Room
  • Kitchen
  • TV Room
  • Home Office

How High should you hang pictures?

The center of the picture should be 57″ from the floor is the answer. That’s eye level

The main thing is to be consistent. Do it the same every time.

It creates balance rather than having things feels scattered.

Hanging Pictures – Step by Step – How To…

  1. Measure and lightly mark 57″ on the wall.
  2. Measure from the top of your picture to the middle (or take the height and divide by 2)
  3. Measure the top of your picture to the tightened wire (a small amount)
  4. Subtract this last amount to tell you how far above 57″ your hook should go
  5. Measure up from 57″ with this last amount and lightly mark on the wall.

There it is…the Center of all of your hanging pictures is 57″ and you are just figuring out  ” where the hook goes above it”

Not bad. That’s pretty easy.

Whether you’re hanging a single canvas or a group of framed art pieces the technique is the same.

Exception

All rules have an exception.

I prefer 60″ in rooms where you’ll see the art when STANDING, such as hallways and  bathroom, .

So the same rule applies, just change your number from 57″ to 60″

Time to Hang or Rehang Your Pictures

Now get out that tape measure and hammer.

Have fun hanging pictures so that both you and your guests will say WOW…that’s a great picture!

It’s all about pictures. Col

Steve Jobs…

STEVE JOBS

Inspiring Words and Quotable Lines

 

MY PERSONAL FAVORITE QUOTE from STEVE JOBS...

 “Picasso had a saying: ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal.’ We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas…I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians, poets, artists, zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world.”  Steve Jobs — 1994

 Steve Jobs has inspired me from the days of my first Apple computer in 1985.

But it’s the iPad that has changed my life significantly.

And then…there’s Steve Jobs great quotes. 

For my final post of 2012…I leave you with some of Steve Jobs’ inspiring words.

(CNN) — Many of Steve Jobs‘ most inspiring words and quotable lines come from his famous 2005 commencement speech at Stanford, when he told assembled graduates, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”

But the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, had many other colorful and insightful things to say.

Here are 10 of his inspiring words and better quotes

culled from “I, Steve: Steve Jobs in His Own Words,” edited by George Beahm.

How Steve Jobs’ legacy has changed. Inspiring words:

1. “What a computer is to me is the most remarkable tool that we have ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.” (film “Memory & Imagination,” 1990)-Steve Jobs
2. “I end up not buying a lot of things, because I find them ridiculous.” (The Independent, 2005)-Steve Jobs
3. “I think death is the most wonderful invention of life. It purges the system of these old models that are obsolete.” (Playboy, 1985)-Steve Jobs
4. “People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” (Apple Worldwide Developers’ Conference, 1997)-Steve Jobs
5. “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful — that’s what matters to me.” (CNNMoney/Fortune, 1993)-Steve Jobs
6. “My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better.” (CNNMoney/Fortune, 2008)-Steve Jobs
7. “If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away.” (Playboy, 1985)-Steve Jobs
8. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” (“The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs,” 2001)-Steve Jobs
9. “My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” (“60 Minutes,” 2003)-Steve Jobs
10. “I would trade all my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.” (Newsweek, 2001)-Steve Jobs

Poppy Bouquet – Art Print

Poppy Bouquet - Framed Art Prints

Poppy Bouquet Square

The flowers fade within a day. This flower painting will live on for years in your home. This years art print of the Poppy Bouquet is from the Paintings on Texture Group of art prints by California artist…Jackie Jacobson. See the collage process that Jacobson used to paint the Poppy Bouquet

“I’ve looked for a way to add texture  to my artwork.” Here it is, in this new group of art prints by artist Jackie Jacobson. Sitting on a rough fabric painting background are the square tile looking art prints. The inspiration came from the new tile art coasters. The beauty of vibrant color against the dark textured background, brings these paintings into a new dimension.

Decorate your home or office in style with eye-catching framed art prints. Back in time, people gave flowers for any occasion. Particularly, the Victorians who were known for giving flowers as a significant definition of their historical period. But as giving flowers has lost significance, adorning walls with flower images is as popular as ever. The lasting appeal of colorful flower art is here by Jackie Jacobson. You don’t have to be a Victorian to appreciate that.

They also make great gifts. Do you know someone who could use a dash of color on their walls? Why not give them something they will enjoy for many years to come?

In addition to our framed flower art prints you may enjoy Jackie Jacobson’s flower paintings on Greeting Cards/Notecards or Tile Art Coasters.
