Just like music, art has been one of the oldest avenues of communication. It transcends language barriers. Regardless of the skin color, one kind of art can be understood the same way. At other times, the same kind of art projects a different interpretation especially if the art is abstract. That is just the way it is. It welcomes different opinions which are unique to the individual’s point of view. It transcends religious or political views. Even the infamous Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci has been the most talked about, the most visited, the most written and sung about piece of art throughout the whole world. The only ones who cannot relate are those who are blind, yet, some blind used their imagination to appreciate the same.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Fine LDS art has many examples to show that anyone can appreciate art. With the availability of the internet and the ease of delivery all over the world no one can stop anyone from owning LDS paintings. Most will have an effect on one’s feelings and outlook. They have the quality that shouts for positive outlook.
Paintings are great to have in one’s domain. A bedroom with nice paintings will make you think and appreciate life. It makes one meditate. It makes the mind work its neurons so as not to leave them stressed or simply tired but it gives new spark. An idle mind breeds evil so if the mind is meditating as a result of looking at the painting, then that painting is doing a good job to make life better. Situations may not be as good but the acceptance of challenges is more like easier than without the help of the painting. Of course there are paintings that are a result of bad emotions. You will not choose them, though, will you?
