Top Five Display Elements That Help You Sell Art
There is so much riding on a good display these days compared to the days BCP (Before Cell Phones) affected our ability to concentrate on much of anything. With the average person checking their cell phones 160 times a day (you read that correctly), people are quite...

Hurricane Lane (is in my lane!)
With a hurricane just hours away from my front door, I was reminded of how important our to-do lists are and how important our connections are.
