Home is supposed to be where the heart is. Too many people can’t wait to rush off to work in the morning. It’s not that they are overly enthusiastic about the day ahead, maybe their home environment is just so bleak and bland that they cannot wait to get away from it. For their own good, that mindset has got to change. For instance, spend more time around the fireplace in the evenings with a decorative fire screen for company.
Spend more time in a newly refurbished chair with clean upholstery and matching cushions, enjoying the freshly painted mantelpiece display whilst reading a good book, just recently bound and protectively covered to look as though it was just bought from the bookseller. It even has that as-new smell you get. There are just so many things to look forward to when the old place is spruced up.
Just a handful of good people can help the bored inhabitant with that. A good interior decorator. A very handy DIY man. And of course, a talented artist who just so happens to have more than painting skills on her pallet. The contracted painter is more than capable of doing a fine and colorful job but because his mind’s on other things more technical, he might not always give those walls the colorful dash it sorely needs.
With all the time and creative imagination in the world, the talented artist, newly commissioned, can do all of that. And behind the scenes, the painter can focus on weatherproofing the walls, sealing it from mold and heavy storms of dust. Same goes for the fireplace. Something more for the chimney sweep to do perhaps while the artist focuses on the artwork then.
