Our office recently underwent renovations, and I had to clear out all of my decor so it didn’t get damaged. It seemed a good a time as any to redecorate, so I will be talking a bit about some office decor ideas here. I was thrilled to find a lovely piece of art in the Startonight Wall Art Canvas Maple Tree.
I picked this piece because it reminded me of the front yard of my childhood home. We have a huge maple tree in the yard, and this painting looks like it was a commissioned work of that area of the property, and of my childhood. My father and I used to play in that area, so it is nice to bright a bit of home into my office. It is beautiful and always brings a smile to my face.
The close up details are stunning. It is one of those paintings that is beautiful from across the room, but breathtaking close-up. The turns of the tree trunk, the individual leaves, the crystal clear water – all are stunning surprises to be found when you examine the painting closely.
Guess what else is cool about this painting? It glows in the dark! Not a neon green, stick-on-planets kind of way, but almost a replica of how light in that area of the yard appears in twilight or if there is a bright, full moon. All it needs is some sunlight and the Dual View Eco Light Inks create a beautiful, soothing view. The Eco Light Inks are interesting: they do not contain phosphorus, which is typically an ingredient in luminescent paints While direct sunlight is ideal, I put the painting near a window with good sunlight, but not direct sunlight, and it worked. In the instructions, it stated that 1 minute of direct natural sunlight per day or 25 minutes of indirect or artificial (aka overhead) light is enough to keep your beautiful twilight view going all night. The light isn’t so bright that it would keep you up at night, I think it would just be a soothing light like a window looking out on a suburban back yard. This painting would be great if you lack windows and would like a view that changes like the outside light. This is ideal if you have a basement apartment, or you simply don’t get as much light as you would like in an area.
The canvas is sturdy and canvas wrapped. It comes with hardware to mount the painting and glow in the dark stars if you want to add some extra light.
