I decided to give a little more information on who this podcast is created for and why I created it. It’s for people who have reached the point of frustration in finding artwork for their home or business. After showing at outdoor art festivals for over ten years and talking with literally millions of art buyers, I know the challenges [...]

Artwork should make you and your visitors feel comfortable. When you see the right size for the art piece on the wall you will know it. And for [...]

This piece was created in my shattered style with a spot of purple. The first version was with a spot of blue. I have also done it with spots of green or red. If you are in [...]
Here's the second piece in my new collection of abstract artwork I'm creating. This collection is all about simplicity. Why the new collection in this style? Simplicity can be very sophisticated looking. It can go anywhere. Simplicity has a universal appeal. Simplicity can be refreshing when the world seems complex and overwhelming. It's therapeutic. The first several pieces in the [...]
I often see very simple art on walls...simple patterns...simple color palettes. I decided to start a collection of simpler abstract pieces with limited color or just black and white. This is the first one. Let me know what you think. —Scott Menaul
