When you look around your house, does your artwork represent you?
Does the artwork reflect who you are?
More importantly, do they make you feel like and be the person you want to be?
Do they make you feel happy, vibrant, filled with life, full of love, excited, creative and successful?
Or do they say that you’re alone, stressed out, and struggling?
Most of the time, the artwork you have represents who you are now or were before.
And is that what you want to be?
If you are happy exactly how you are, then that is great!
But, if you feel like you are always living paycheck to paycheck, not getting any respect from your coworkers or from friends and family, then something has to change.
If this is the case, see if you have any artwork that might make you feel that way.
Most of the time, you will love the artwork and feel like you are “in” the artwork.
So, you likely won’t notice it. But, if you were to ask a third-party to look at it, will they see something else?
When I met my husband, he had a picture of a lighthouse with a giant wave ready to crash down on it in the career section of his house.
He was a salesman, and for a salesman to be seen as being out there in the sea all by himself, waves crashing down on him all the time, it’s got to be stressful.
And yes, he was all alone in his career and felt overwhelmed.
Another classic single guy client I had was a struggling artist.
His artwork was a black and white picture of man standing on top of a New York construction site.
It was no wonder he felt so tired and felt like he was always doing a balancing act.
Another client of mine had a painting of a man and a woman under one umbrella embracing each other while walking through a heavy windstorm.
She thought the painting was romantic. But, what I saw was a man and a woman struggling to get through life under a one tiny roof.
And that was exactly the situation they were in. This couple had lost everything, and were living in a one-bedroom apartment struggling to get by.
By the way, a wonderful example of some Asian art that could be utilized to attract the energy you want in certain well-placed areas of your home or office is Korean traditional folk art called Minhwa and can be found at www.JackieKimArt.com.
In fact, my husband now has one of these paintings with a dragon in the wealth corner of his office.
So, look around you and see what your art speaks about you. Better yet, have someone else tell you what they see.
