Photo by uvw916a

Music has the power to influence your brain and body, both positively and negatively. It can alter your mood, motivate you to engage in various activities, and aid in recovery from injuries. Numerous studies have shown that music can have diverse effects on the brain. Although music has many positive impacts on the brain, some negative consequences are also worth considering. Music can relieve stress and fatigue, making you feel better and stronger, and even has calming and soothing effects on the mind. In summary, music has more positive than negative effects on the brain. Let’s explore some of these positive and negative effects in more detail.

Improves brain function and enhances concentration

Studies have shown that music can increase concentration levels in the human brain, making it sharper and more focused. It can also improve memory in patients suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The silence between musical notes stimulates brain cells, enhancing memory.

Selling your art at outdoor art fairs

At larger art festivals, attendance can reach 250,000 or more, meaning many people will have the opportunity to see your art, making it easier to sell your work! If that’s not enough to convince you, keep in mind that some artists report six-figure annual incomes from selling their art at street festivals across the US.

Before you start applying to art festivals, do some research to find out which fairs are right for you. Some art fairs are well-known and highly-regarded, while others are smaller and don’t generate as much foot traffic. When researching which art fairs to join, try to find answers to the following questions:

  2. Will any cash prizes be awarded, and if so, how many prizes and for what amounts?
  3. What is the booth fee?
  4. Does the art festival expect to collect a percentage of sales?
  5. What is the location of the art fair? Also, how far will you need to drive? Will you need to stay at a hotel? What are the costs for this – and is it worth it, given the answers to the previous questions?
  6. Are you allowed to sell prints and

For me a torrent of feelings were released in… by a personal desire to showcase my grandmother’s handkerchiefs, which had been stored in boxes and bags, by displaying them in a way that highlights their beauty. These delicate cloth squares are truly stunning, and it’s hard to imagine using them for their original purpose. Here are a few ways to showcase these lovely handkerchiefs:

Handkerchiefs Under Glass

Many of my grandmother’s handkerchiefs measure approximately 11″ x 11″. A 12″ x 12″ frame works well for displaying them. I found a lightweight, thin black plastic frame with a clear plastic front at my local JoAnn store. These frames have a bendable plastic front that can be removed to insert the handkerchief and then reinserted. The black background highlights the lace handkerchiefs beautifully.
