One of the aspects of painting still life objects is their quiet contemplative nature. The objects are not moving, they're still. : ) If I have the radio or music on it is almost always soothing. It is a meditation on vision and colors and shapes. Having this painting on your wall can give you that same quiet feeling. It can take you to a place where you can think and go inward. Hang it in a place where you can see it during those brief moments and give up distraction.
