Two Stephen Darbyshire paintings here show beautiful views from windows. No matter if you live in an apartment or a house; in the country or in town, windows are very important. Consider making a private view of your own with hedges, birdhouses and birdpaths, pathways and seating areas. Little "views" outside a window, even if it is just a flower box, are so restful to the eyes and calming to the blood pressure.It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. That is why it is so important to have meaningful pictures in the home.

During Victorian times, artists sometimes painted stories into their pictures. You could guess what was happening by looking at the things in the painting. Here, you can just imagine a woman pausing for a moment to catch her breath and reflect on the beauties of the earth. I hope you all have wonderful views and if you don't, that you will create them.

In case one does not have a window and/or a beautiful view one can be created using fabrics, which are curtains at $39.75 a pair with a beautiful view portrayed on them.

There is "English Garden" T71A, "Woodland Crossing", T71B, "Island Retreat", T71C, "Tuscan Life Vineyard" T71D, "Cottage Garden" T71E, "Desert Garden", T71F, "Park Avenue" T71G, "French Cafe"' T71H, and "Bamboo Beach", T71I and all are available at the window art section at
There are also wall murals and wallpapers that create views, available from various places.

If you do not have a view, it is even more important to go sight-seeing and look at views. It reminds me of my father, who would take us on Sunday drives on the way home from church, where we could see a view from afar off. Looking at scenery seems to be one of the lost arts of childhood, which we need to revive.

I've temporarily halted comments because, as much as I don't want to admit it, my house is a wreck and I am running behind in just about everything. Comments tend to make me want to sit and "talk" instead of doing urgent things. However, emails are welcome:
