Rule number one is "Trust your gut reaction"; if you feel an instant emotional connection with a painting, that 'wow' factor will last and the painting will bring you years of pleasure.
Consider size, colour, tone and mood; it needs to work within the space. If you love it, can you re-arrange the existing paintings or furnishings to better position the painting?
Try before you buy? If in doubt, it's sometimes possible for me to bring a selection of paintings for you to try at home. This is a great way to judge scale and colours, before making a commitment.
Do you need to commission? If you can't find exactly what you want on my website or need a particular size, get in touch. A commission is sometimes the best solution and saves time hunting for the perfect piece. There is no extra charge and I will work with you to ensure you get a perfect result.
