Rooted in ancient Graeco-Roman art and dating back to the middle ages, still life art has been around for centuries, and yet still does not fail to create a sense of excitement and power. Capturing the hearts of viewers, still life art can be a true joy to look at. This ultimately makes it ideal for the home, and a perfect ingredient in creating a series of beautiful rooms.
Here are the reasons why still life art is so powerful and just how it can be used in interior design.
Radiates a sense of tranquillity
There is nothing more tranquil than a still life painting. Often a representation of nature’s most beautiful objects such as a flower or a bird, still life art has the power to bring the outside world into the home. With artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Ambrosius Bosschaert painting eye-catching and enchanting flowers, there are a variety of incredible still life images to behold.
Bringing a true sense of tranquillity to the home, these images are ideal for anyone who wants to create a calm, relaxed and radiant ambience through interior design. Perfect for a room such as the bedroom, where homeowners go to seek rest, still life images depicting nature will not fail to exude a peaceful atmosphere.
Creates a sense of intrigue
Amidst the routine of life, there is often a great need to be enthralled, fascinated and intrigued. When visiting a gallery or exhibition, there is nothing quite like seeing a unique and original painting full of mystery and wonder. So, why not take that feeling home? Having a piece of still life art in the house will provide homeowners with that incredible, inspirational feeling every single day. Due to its complexity and detail, still life art will continue to amaze time and time again; there are always new wonders to be found.
William Harnett’s respected and recognized depiction of the violin is a superb example of this, as the deep colours are full of hidden detail, and there are tiny exciting attributes to be seen every-time one admires the image. Packed with intrigue, there is no better way to bring excitement to the home than through a spectacular piece of still life art.
A piece like this should be used in the lounge, or hallway, ready to capture the attention of visitors and intrigue family and friends. Placed in a communal area, an interesting and absorbing still life image will create conversation and get excitement brewing. Perfect for the modern simplistic home, an enthralling piece such as this will be all the room needs.
Pauses time, to depict beauty
Usually depicting an inanimate subject matter, still life art has the ability to capture the intricate detail and beauty of ordinary, every-day objects.
For instance world-renowned artist Paul Cézanne’s image of a fruit basket is full of colour and life, outlining beauty that is almost unnoticeable to the naked eye and would be missed ordinarily. The ruffled table cloth in the image, and the clutter of pottery, gives the impression that the beauty of this simple bowl fruit lays amidst a frantic, busy world. The artist pauses time to reflect upon beauty; this is so often what still life art does, and is perhaps its most lovable quality.
A piece such as this would be ideal for the home, specifically in a room such as the kitchen, which is often busy and presents many tasks and chores. A still life painting which pauses time to depict beauty would provide homeowners with that much needed reminder not to forget to rest, relax and enjoy life occasionally.
Still life art undoubtedly provides great inspiration. From intriguing pieces being used in the lounge to stir up conversation, to calming art being displayed in the kitchen to relax homeowners, there are many superb ways to use this art form in interior design. Quiet yet powerful, it can certainly be said that still life art speaks volumes without saying anything at all.
The Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) is an American progressive rock band founded by composer, lyricist and producer Paul O’Neil who brought together Al Pitrelli and John Olive who are both the members of the band Savatage and co producer and keyboardist Robert Kinkel to form the core creative team. In 1999, the band gained popularity after completing their rock opera. The band has sold more than nine million tickets and over eight million albums. The band’s musical style incorporates symphonic, progressive, orchestra and classical elements into heavy metal and hard rock. The band has released rock operas series like Christmas attic, the lost Christmas Eve and others. Trans- Siberian Orchestra is known for their extensive elaborate and charity concerts which include light show, string section, video screen moving trusses and others. It has been ranked as the top ten ticket selling band in the first decade of new millennium by both pollstar and billboard magazine. This numbers are more impressive when you factor out in that the band is the first major rock band to go straight to arenas and theaters, having no playing club and no opening act.
The two thousand and thirteen season tour marks the end of the performances of the lost Christmas Eve which is installed in the Christmas trilogy. It will run from thirteenth of November to thirtieth of December, with tow different tours going on at the same side on opposite side of the country.
One of the troupes starts their tour in Toledo, Ohio and the other on the Council Buffs, Iowa. The two teams will travel across the country with sixty seven performances which are scheduled less than 2 months that provides fans with several opportunities to buy Trans Siberian orchestra tickets.

The Top 5 Hollywood Actors Of 2013
1) Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling was always part of the scene but he didn’t really explode until 2011 an his role in Crazy Stupid Love. Now he is one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood and is starring in movies left and right.
2) Jennifer Lawrence
Deemed one of the most loveable people of Hollywood, Jenifer Lawrence has won the hearts of millions with her down to earth and humble personality. See, actors are just like normal people.
3) Hugh Jackman
The man is in his mid-forties, but Hugh Jackman is still a powerful action star, starting in in the title role in this year’s Wolverine. And age doesn’t seem to be stopping the hunky actor down as he is due to reprise his role as Logan in next year’s X-men: Days Of Future Past.
4) Ben Affleck
In the recent years, Ben Afflect has in a way revitalized his career. After some disastrous movies such as Daredevil and Gigli, Ben Affleck has had nothing but a string of hits.
With movies like Argo, The Town, and the recent announcement of his portrayal as Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) in next years Superman vs. Batman, there is nothing slowing down Ben Affleck from being one of the most memorable actors of this generation.

If your child wants to break into acting, there’s a few things you can do to help them pave the way to acting success.
Firstly, help your child gain the necessary education about acting and the industry that they will need to know.
Second, practice and experience! A great idea would be to enroll your child into local theater and drama programs in your area. There also may be classes offered at their school or even an after school activity that involves theater or encourages acting.
Lastly, apply for as many auditions as possible and make it a point to attend casting calls on a regular basis. There are so many opportunities for child actors with things like disney channel auditions and so many new kid’s movies coming out every year. Who knows? Maybe your kid could be the next iCarly!
One important thing to realize as a parent as that if your child truly has the desire to be a kid actor, it’s going to be just as much of a job for you as it is for them. After all, you’re their guardian, their transportation, and their provider, so undoubtedly there will be some scheduling that needs to be worked out. Just be prepared.
Another thing you can do to help increase the chances of your child’s acting success is to encourage them. Your child may not land every role that they audition for, and as children, they are more likely to be upset or disappointed in failure. Do your best to encourage them to keep working hard and practicing and let them know that just because they didn’t get selected for a role on a Disney or nickelodeon show it doesn’t mean they are a failure. Sometimes casting directors just have a certain look they are seeking, and sometimes scripts change last minute or directions for a project change so instead of searching for a 6 year old Caucasian female actress they might change the entire project around and end up seeking a 12 year old male for the part. Who knows?!
Acting is a great activity to get involved in, and if it’s truly your child’s desire to eventually turn it into a professional career, the sooner they start, the better!

“Matilda” Arrives On Broadway
“Matilda” has finally made it across the pond to debut on Broadway, and everyone is gushing, even the “New York Times.” This Royal Shakespeare Company’s musical production has already won seven Olivier Awards in England and promises to capture as much glory on American shores.
Based on the much loved book by Roald Dahl, “Matilda” follows the main character as she faces injustice from her school’s evil headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, and indifference from her parents. Her alliance with her teacher, Miss Honey, helps set her on the way to a better life.
So far, everything about the “Matilda” production has brought praise, from the score to the performances. Widely touted as the best musical now on Broadway, “Matilda” has already joined the Million Dollar Club, putting it on a trajectory to bring in record receipts.
Though technically a child’s story, the classic tale offers plenty for adults, including the wry social commentary of Dahl. The sadistic adults in this piece make it darker than the usual kid’s tale, but the determination of Matilda, now framed by a soon-to-be classic score, makes this musical a triumphant celebration of good versus evil. Most importantly, Matilda on Broadway is a rousing good time for the entire family.
“Matilda” is a truly excellent Broadway musical that is more than worth the price of admission. Embraced by fans in England, this presentation is exciting the same adoration in American fans. Matilda on Broadway is the musical of the season, so anyone wanting to see it needs to get their tickets now before all performances are sold out.

National Danish Museums closes – vistiors “too rich”
The buzz on Twitter and Facebook today has been the closing of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. A state run museum that is among the most visited in norther Europe. In a press release signed by director Poul Erik Tojner we could read this:
“Starting today and until further notice, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art closes all its exhibitions to outside visitors. This includes the Sculpture garden as well as the Scherfig Annexes.
The reason for this drastic action is the new Dasco-survey showing a (for a state funded institution) totally unacceptable proportion of visitors from Denmarks wealthiest percentile, as well as vanishing interest for the art itself in favor of the gift shops, restaurants et al. Also, perhaps as an effect of this, during the last twenty years the art itself has gradually become less and less engaging and more and more decorative. The museum extends it’s deepest apologies to those affected by this drastic decision, but hope there will be an understanding for our reasoning.”
Apparently the one behind this is the russian artist Petro Wodkins. You can listen to him talking about the piece in national danish radio here: http://podcast.dr.dk/P1/kulturnyt/2013/kulturnyt_1304181246.mp3
Have you ever considered using an art consultant or do you even know what one is? Art Consultancy is being more and more common now days. This is an industry which is growing rapidly whether it is for a business or your home.
Art consultants bring a room together. When you have a space that you need filled, not only do they find a piece of art to fit it at your budget price. They are also very experienced and trying to find a piece to bring the vibe you are looking for in a room. This vibe / feeling you may be looking for can vary greatly depending on the location. A dentist office is obviously going to be much different than an attorneys office or your living room and it needs to reflect the surrounding space. No many individuals have the time or knowledge to do this on their own.
Trends in artwork are constantly changing. Before was canvas, posters, and framed artwork but things are often changing in the current days of digital printing. Not to mention unique pieces such as bamboo, wall sculptures(of metal, wood, clay, to name a few), or even three dimensional pieces.
When looking for which art consultant is the right one for you make sure you do your homework first and find a reputable company such as Acrylicize.
