Our friend Barbara Markoff, owner of Artrageous! in San Diego, has written a book titled, “Becoming a Corporate Art Consultant, the Handbook for Corporate Art Consultation.”

With very little information available on how to sell art programs to corporate clients, Barbara felt compelled to write a book on the subject and share her 29 years of experience.  Topics include

how to locate and work with artists, find leads, make presentations, write proposals, maintain client relationships, join the right networking groups, showcase the artwork with appropriate

framing design, and how to install artwork.  This book will be a valuable resource for all interested in selling art programs to corporate clients.

Barbara, a former art therapist, has been in the art and framing industry for almost 3 decades.  She has developed  over 400 art programs nationwide.   Her clients include a wide cross section of industries including healthcare, hospitality, law, education, commercial real estate, biotechnology, telecommunications, sports teams, and banking.

Frost covered leaves imaage #011208_10As a fine art nature photographer the desire to travel explore and photograph in new locations is ever present. Photographs of exotic lands are always popular. However, often the most amazing art is created from the ordinary moments in nature that are all around us. This image I made early one January morning right after we had moved into our new home. I walked out my front door and spied these frost covered leaves. I ran back in got my camera and spent the next 30 minutes creating this image. This image has become one of my most popular photographs.

As our lives become increasingly complex, an inner urge emerges to simplify our living areas to create balance and peace internally.  Interior designers are being asked to create minimalist spaces for their clients that still resonate with character and sophistication. This is a task that is easier said than done, as less is often more difficult to achieve than more.

Choosing just the right works of art to adorn walls is key to creating a Zen living space that also has warmth and life. Many intriguing photographs can be found to achieve this effect. The goal is to select those that are simple yet imaginative and evoke a sense of nature that can serve as a focal point for such designs.

Each room in a Zen design should have only one central focal point – a small Zen garden, a leaf print, or a simply stated wooden bench would suffice.  Such spaces should be highly functional and efficient, with many pieces of furniture serving a double duty.

Colors should be nature-oriented, and can be defined by the Zen photography placed on the walls.  Sage, coffee, taupe, and shades of balsa blend nicely together and create a natural, simplistic setting.

Also complementary to a Zen design are the photos of leaves.  As the humble leaf is the “factory” where food is produced for the mighty tree, it is symbolic of small things creating great results.  Dried leaves symbolize the harvest, while green, fresh ones symbolize the newness of spring. Photos of leaves fill the viewer with a sense of peace and harmony, making them ideal choices for stress-free living spaces.

Recessed lighting adds to the overall ambiance of such a design, and helps to illuminate the tastefully chosen Zen photos for decorating adding interest to the space.  A few candles sparsely spread throughout each room will add the Feng Shui element of fire for balance.

We have a large number of images suitable for imparting a Zen feeling to the design of a room throughout our site. You can visit a special gallery of our Zen imagery created using an exclusive technique by clicking HERE

Fall is one of my favorite seasons for photography. Each year I plan a trip to follow the changing colors as they roll south. This year is no exception. I am currently in the Smoky Mountains after hitting two other locations further north earlier this week. Next week will be southern Tennessee, north Alabama and Georgia. In the next few weeks I will begin posting some of the photographs from this season. The photograph above I made last year in Vermont.
