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.

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?
