  1. My computer-savvy son, who studies art, showed me that at wahooart.com, we can browse through their big collection of images from western art, to get some ideas for painting the wall in our music room.
    I found that it was easier, time-saving and economical to order a big canvas print of an original painting from the site. I ordered this famous La dance by French artist Henri Matisse, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-5ZKCN9. What a lovely blue.
