Make your day better with Hygge & the art of Craig Baltzer

With our ongoing show just getting started, we thought we'd highlight a few of the works in the show here on the blog, but hope that you'll drop by for a closer look and perhaps even add a little bit of our hygge to your home with original art by local artists!

Today we're showcasing all the works painted by Craig Balzer in response to the concept of hygge.  Craig not only understands the concept, but really lives it everyday and it shows in all the artwork he does. In fact, hygge is an art form itself and is a great way to escape the  drudgery winter can bring while bringing great happiness by appreciating the simple things in life.

 Whether that be a warmth of a winter's day with the glow of the sun streaming through your home like the painting above called "Still", 6"x8", Watercolour and Ink on Board.

 Or a warm cozy pet cuddled up on your lap or on a window sill in the sun....ahh.....to have the life of a cat....
Sometime hygge can even be found in those sunbeams that bounce upon your walls of your home, giving it an almost fairy tale feeling. Contentment....

What's your hygge? 

We hope you find your hygge this week with us and all the amazing works of art glowing from our walls.
