While living in Madrid, Spain, my sister collected many pieces of beautiful oil paintings. There was one in particular that I especially loved. After years of admiring this piece, she finally gave it to me! I have always been intrigued by the depth of the colors and lightness in this painting. I never knew the name of the painting, so I named it - "The Two Sisters".
If you want to enhance the beauty of your home with oil paintings there are basically two important things to keep in mind. First, never hang an oil painting in direct sunlight. This can cause your painting to fade or possibly crack. Temperature is also an issue. The ideal temperature for an oil painting is 65-75 degrees. Oil paintings make a nice dramatic effect and can enhance the decor of your home.
