Curate Your Collection.

Untitled 5, Leigh Beisch.

I have an important birthday coming up this year, and as a gift to myself, I am seriously considering purchasing myself a nice piece of artwork, a large piece for above my desk. I'd like something that means a lot to me, that I can look up and feel comforted by as I am working. So, I went on Suzanne Shade's amazing online art gallery, The Beholder, to have a look around and see what struck my fancy.

Suzanne has a wonderful group of artists represented on The Beholder, and the site allows you to curate your own little collection when you log-in and become a member (free, of charge of course). So, I curated this set, which was easy, and a lot of fun, and am going to visit it for a while and sit and think about how these images make me feel, and how I'd feel living with one of them in my home. The other great thing about The Beholder, is that Suzanne offers a seven-day trial period for you to have art on loan and see how it looks in your space, before making the final investment. Wanna be a collector, anyone? Curate away!

I just spent all morning curating a collection! There goes my productivity.

But it was fun.
