Happy Valentine’s Day from Third & Wall!

Love is in the air at Third & Art Wall Group, but we don’t need Valentine’s Day to remind us that we love our artists, and we really get stars in our eyes when they share their romantic artwork with us!

Loved-up couples are the romantic foundation of Valentine’s Day, whether they’re kissing or just sharing quality time. Artists Julianne Marcoux, Kelsey Hochstatter and KC Haxton have each captured their own unique visions of romance and intimacy in these compelling figuratives.

Did you know that Valentine’s Day is the #1 fresh-flower selling holiday for florists? According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, 37.8 percent of Americans will buy flowers for Valentine’s Day 2015, spending a total of $2.1 billion. Florals represent the heart in a way that nothing else can, and they’re beautifully captured in these lush bouquets by the amazing Liz Jardine.

Some of us are a little more practical about the phenomenon of love. Is it all just chemical? New artist Parker Jones schools us on the facts and properties of love with these sweet and clever new graphic images.

Remember to keep the love in your heart (and your art!) 365 days a year. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Trends from the 2015 Las Vegas West Coast Art & Frame Show

We are all just getting back to work and resettled from the exciting West Coast Art & Frame Show in Las Vegas. It was a fabulous show, with terrific turn out! We all had a great time seeing many of our customers from around the world and meeting new clients.

While we were there we heard several recurring “wishlist” themes from show attendees. Keep reading for the Top 5 most-requested image categories being specified by our clients.

COASTAL – Although sailing continues to be a strong theme, clients are looking for a fresh take on this timeless seascape category.

FLORAL – With the approach of Spring, many people are looking for fresh florals, particularly with a watercolor feel.

LODGE – Rugged and Rustic are the buzz words for this earthy category.

METALLICS – While gold is making a big comeback, silver and bronze are also strong.

NEUTRALS  – After years of heavily-trending vibrant colors, neutrals are very strong.

All in all, we had a great tradeshow, and are already busy channeling all the valuable market info and customer requests into exciting and trend-forward new imagery and color palettes, so stay tuned!
