When choosing an Oil Paintings for sale as a real estate closing gift, be sure to take a number of factors into consideration. First of all, it is best to avoid an oil painting with large, obvious shapes or bright, overwhelming colors. Famous Paintings When purchasing a custom oil painting from an artist or an art expo, choose an oil painting that has a calming effect and uses more neutral tones. This way it can be used in any room, whether it is in an office or home.Also, choose a custom oil painting that is not too large or too small.
Children Paintings If an oil painting is too large or too small, it will have limited potential for use in certain rooms. Keeping the painting to a medium size will give the gift receiver some flexibility and options. Flower Paintings Be sure to keep the subject of the custom oil painting relatively neutral, unless you are certain about the tastes and styles of the person you are purchasing it for as a real estate closing gift. Boats Paintings Landscapes are a great choice when considering a custom oil painting as a real estate closing gift idea. A still life is also a good idea because most still-life oil paintings can be broadly appreciated by most people.

The Finding of Moses, one of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's greatest People Paintings.The fate of this painting is a tale sure to intrigue everyone who loves Tadema or hearing about successful treasure hunts. Building Paintings Some time in the late 1950's an English professor in London was walking through the gallery district and passed a narrow alley lined with garbage cans. Out of the corner of his eye he noticed what looked to be a fine painting sitting outside with the trash. Oil Paintings for sale So he ran into the dealer, thinking he was doing a good deed, and told the proprietor that he must have accidentally forgotten a painting out in the alley. Famous Paintings The dealer thanked him for his attention, but explained that it was a terrible out of fashion trite piece of garbage that nobody would want and that they had purchased it for its frame which they said was quite beautiful. So this educator asked if the dealer minded if he were to take it home. Children Paintings They said "Of course not…you're saving us on our garbage bill” was the welcome response.That painting was later found to be the subject of this narrative, “Finding of Moses” by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

Cupid and Psyche as Children is Bouguereau's famous Children Painting.The story of Cupid and Psyche was one of Bouguereau's favorite myths. He painted several works inspired from this legend, such as The Rapture of Psyche,Psyche and Cupid, and Psyche. Flower PaintingsThe myth of Cupid and Psyche first appears written in The Golden Ass of Lucius Apuleius in the 2nd century AD. In the story, Psyche is a beautiful princess of whom the goddess Venus is jealous. In her rage she orders her son cupid to make Psyche fall in love with a monster, but Cupid falls in love with her himself. Boats PaintingsAfter several trials Cupid and Psyche make their plea to the gods who turn Psyche into an immortal and allow them to be married in heaven (British Library). In this painting Bouguereau was inspired to paint the two lovers together as children. Demonstrating that fate its self had a hand in there meeting. People PaintingsThey were born to be together. The subtle paint handling captures the children's innocence and illustrates to the viewer that Cupid's original attraction to Psyche was not purely physical, but also platonic, for the innocence of childhood does not allow for anything else. Building PaintingsYou cannot have true love without also having a mutual trust and respect, and a relaxed and enduring companionship between lovers. Cupid and Psyche's union then is not just physical: they are soul mates and compliment each other eternally.

Houses and flats should be given to the people without access to adequate shelter to achieve the public purpose for which the Urban Land (Ceiling & Regulation) Act has been enacted.  Vacant land, which often is exploited, should not be given, or else the purpose for which this act has been enacted is defeated.  To achieve this, a study group has made certain suggestions. 

1.   Selling the housing stock created on all lands vested with the government, and acquired through the Urban Land (Ceiling & Regulation) Act must be done only by government controlled housing development agencies and housing finance banks. 
2.   To encourage everyone to take up construction activities, they must have an opportunity to generate reasonable profits through better market price for the land under development.

Due to the possibility of phenomenal returns, this key destination is now an attraction for scores of investors from other parts of the world.  For an investor intending to invest in real estate Kochi City now offers a wide variety of choices.  The amendments to the Urban Land Ceiling Act has now made it possible to own land in the urban centers and develop it according to ones own ability.  The investor friendly population of the city always welcomes people from any part of the world willing to make significant investments that creates job opportunities for all sections of the people.

When going back into the investment pattern over a long period of time in the past, we come to know that no proper investment in Kochi has ever stagnated.  People who have purchased land in the urban and semi-urban parts of the city have seen their investments appreciating like never before.  In some places the cost of land has gone up by more than 100 percent.

I have a system that works - when I stick to it and our schedules don't change too much - but life with a 4 year old and a 2 year old (who LOVES to empty any containers of whatever she finds) make it very challenging to stay on top of HOUSEHOLD stuff beyond dishes, laundry, and vacuuming the living room.

My 4 year old is beginning to help with chores - and both girls are great about cleaning up when it's time - but everything ALWAYS looks so cluttered and chaotic.  Is that just this "season" of parenting or is there something I can do to get rid of the clutter of toys, books, shoes, etc???

Am I REALLY the only "morning person" here?  Okay - so as I've gotten older, had children who may not allow me to get a full night's sleep, it's been a challenge to be a morning person - but I still prefer to get up early over staying up late.

I just posted my tips in response to another request here: http://516club.freesmfhosting.com/index.php/topic,125.0.html

Hope it helps!

Honestly, I'm a morning person.  BUT, this summer - due to my husband's schedule, getting up at 4 or 5 am became a norm - but it took some practice!

1. Set your alarm for the time you want to get up.  It takes awhile to adjust, but your body can begin anticipating the alarm sound and getting up earlier isn't quite a struggle.  Give yourself a week to adjust to the new alarm with a couple of snoozes, then actually start GETTING up!

2. GO TO BED EARLIER.  This may seem like an obvious thing - but in my house - bedtime is when I can "get things done" so sacrificing that time was a little hard for me at first.  But, as I began going to bed earlier (by 15 minutes or so at first), the easier it was to wake up and get moving.

3. Eat a small snack before bedtime.  This may help you fall asleep faster.  Banana & peanut butter.  Graham crackers & milk.  A protein and a carb combination is a healthy snack, and provides those enzymes that lull your body into sleeping.

4. Prepare a schedule.  Knowing what you need to do when you get up is key to motivation!  Maybe you won't be quite awake enough in the beginning to accomplish much, but having your "To Do" list handy can get you focused and keep you focused.

5. Devotions & Coffee.  One of the BEST ways to start your day.  Okay - so you don't have to have coffee, but reading my Bible and drinking coffee is a lovely way to start my day.  I originally began in Psalms because they were easy to read and got me in the habit.  Now I can manage a devotional with Scripture, prayer & journaling.  And if I get my coffeemaker ready the night before - all I have to do is plug it in (which only requires one half-open eye!)

6. Take naps if you need them.  A 15-20 minute "power nap" can do WONDERS when you feel like you're dragging.  This can be accomplished if you work full-time and your office/supervisor is flexible.  I would often eat my lunch and then go sit in my car or a quiet office where I could turn the light off, set my phone alarm and snooze.  Any longer than 30 minutes and I was groggy the rest of the day.  But 20 minutes gave me a boost of energy that lasted until bedtime!

I have a question.

In today's day and age it seems hard to see the 'relevance' of scripture. Do you find the message of Jesus and Scripture to be relevant to your life today? If so, how?

Not sure how often I can come up with a new question or topic but I thought I'd start with this.
