A Treasure on the Wall...

This is one of my favourite silk paintings Nautilus from the Magic Creatures series. This time I really looked for a room where this painting would look like a treasure on the wall. It's neither spectacular (the room) nor very big but it's simplicity reveals a decent elegance. The painting adds to the atmosphere and this is what a painting should do - don't you think?
If you would like to see more details of this painting click on the link above or on the photo below.

Thank you very much Kim. I often wonder myself where and how a piece of art can be placed to its advantage, both the room and the artwork. To virtually place it into a room is a great way to see where it would fit - I have learned already a lot through this.
