Hopefully, you’ve taken the first two steps to organize your art collection. If so, you’re ready to assess the overall balance of what you have. If you’re heavy on photography, now it’s time to diversify by considering other media like original works on canvas or paper. If you’re heavy on original paintings, try collecting photography or mixed media. Ultimately, your art collection will develop strength and synergy if multiple mediums are represented. Another way to look at it is – how many works are behind glass? If none or all, then diversify. One last thing before you go out and collect new original artworks that Spark Joy – walk through your home and identify your focal walls. Focal walls are the walls your eye travels to first upon entering a room or space. If you already have beloved artwork you’d like to move to these focal walls, GREAT! Fill those focal walls first. If your focal walls are already filled, then you know you’re just collecting original artwork that you love in the mediums you need to round out your collection.
