Enrich Your Art Experience

June 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The original plates are all sold out.

If you would like a reproduction print, please email info@timlaytonfineart.com or call +1.314.972.4900 to discuss your requirements and pricing.

All reproduction prints are scans of the original plates and printed with archival quality pigment inks and papers on a large format printer. The same care and attention to detail is applied to these prints.

Reproduction prints are a great way to own a beautiful gallery quality piece of art at an affordable price. Because Tim works in large format, very large mural prints are possible.
Viewing and purchasing art is a very personal experience.  Art brings a lot of joy and evokes emotion in a way that is voluntary and non-utilitarian.  Art can transport us to a joyful or unique place and it can improve our days in an instant.  Like the ability to read and write, the arts distinguish the human race from all other species on earth.  I often think about the first time a human being saw and appreciated a flower for its beauty versus thinking about its purpose or as a food source.  There is something special inside all of us that wants to enrich and improve the spaces where we spend time.

I love the process of buying art and so I thought I would share some of the questions that I ask myself to help others.

Questions for Consideration:

  • Why do I like or enjoy the kinds of art that I am already buying or considering? 
  • Does the art represent something that is important to me?  
  • How do I fit into this artwork?  What is the connection between me and what the art represents? 
  • What about the art appeals to my senses? 
  • Do I like the artist, his/her work, and what they represent? 
  • When viewing the artwork, what does it represent to me? 
  • What is the art communicating to me? 
  • Does the art make me think about things that I enjoy or have never thought about before? 
  • Does the artwork inform or alter my perspective on some aspect of life? 
  • Do I admire the technical qualities and craftsmanship of the art? 

By asking yourself these and other similar questions, you can quickly narrow down the pieces of artwork that are important to you.
