Ok yeah – we are super excited about Spring, and what’s not to love: dining al fresco, daffodils, spring break and colorful and welcoming spring infused wall décor.
Michelle Daisley Moffitt celebrates with Serene – we love the crisp citron green and sky blue tones, while Corina Capri tells us to Open Up – with sublime red and purple botanicals. Sunflowers show us their lovely faces in Sunflowers II from Richard Silver and Peachy Keen No 2 from Suzanne Nicoll delivers a quiet reminder to just chill.

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. The Black History Month 2021 theme, “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity,” explores the African diaspora, and the spread of Black families across the United States.
Image Conscious recognizes the achievements of many Black artists in our community; in this Spotlight, we are highlighting Salaam Muhammad. As a teenager, this Missouri based artist discovered through his spirituality the power of art. Just like music, his art has universal appeal. Themes of love, connection, and unity resonate with everyone. With his art, he makes people feel emotions they may have forgotten. By the time he was a young man in his early 20s, he was traveling the country, attending venues and shows. His oil canvas and mixed media paintings speak vibrantly to everyone who comes across them. He can shift styles from photorealistic to cartoon illustrations. In Crown Me Lord – Woman, the artist renders his interpretation of Isiah 62:3 – You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Find Salaam Muhammad’s artwork and all of our Black voices in our Ethnic art section.
National Women’s History Month traces its roots to March 8, 1857, when women from various New York City factories staged a protest over poor working conditions. The first Women’s Day celebration in the United States was in 1909, also in New York City. It began as Women’s History Week, but later expanded to a month in 1987. Here at Image Conscious we celebrate the many national and international women artists that we publish.
From Jane Schmidt’s colorful landscapes to Lucia Heffernan’s curious and hilarious animals, our collections reflect a diverse group of talent in subject to style and technique. Erin K. Robinson brings us a collection of Black girls and women and Ishita Banerjee takes us back to mid-century shapes and bold colors.
Celebrate women in film, politics, literature and art. And add beauty to your walls with our fine art reproductions.
Over the years, many of you have visited San Francisco, to ride the Cable Cars, visit Alcatraz or walk across the Golden Gate Bridge. We’re glad you came!
Now we have a very unwelcome visitor, the Covid-19 virus. In the hopes he finds a chilly reception here, and takes a hike as quickly as possible, the city has shut down his favorite bars, restaurants and shops, and asked all residents to avoid him by staying at home. (We know he’s male; a woman would not be so cruel!)
Of course we’re taking all health precautions. But as long as FedEx and UPS are at work, we remain at work, answering questions, discussing art, offering recommendations, taking orders, sending shipments and handling customer service issues.
Most important, we continue to source art and send out new releases. These can be accessed by going to “Downloads” on our home page, and scrolling down to “Marketing PDF’s.” Our latest release from March 17 includes dazzling images from our popular Fabrikken line.
Finally, while this is not the way we wanted to make national news, we are ever grateful to all of you who have called, expressing concern for our well-being. Every one of you is exemplary of the faith I have in American ingenuity and steadfastness in the face of a crisis. We will get through this!
Stop by our Booth #2880 at the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City. The show runs from Sunday, February 2nd through Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Be sure to visit our Licensing Website to see the artists who participate in our Licensing program. We have more images available than you see on our website, so please ask.
After you’ve found the perfect image, match it to the perfect substrate. Besides our standard paper, cotton rag and canvas substrates, we offer three alternative substrates: acrylic, bamboo and metal.
Acrylic: Our transparent acrylic substrate gives every image a fresh, modern, contemporary appearance. Your clients will love the clean, polished edges, and how their chosen artwork will literally “stand out” on the walls.
Metal: Artwork printed on metal seem to compel the viewer to take a deeper look. It’s astounding how metal can give images a new, vibrant dimension – especially abstracts and painted landscapes. A layer of quality brushed aluminum is bonded to a non-warping substrate, and the image can either be printed directly onto the metal or first printed on a white backing.
Wood: Composed of sustainably grown and harvested bamboo, our wood substrate is naturally moisture- and mold-resistant. The natural blond surface of wood both “warms” the look of every image, while it unexpectedly showcases their colors in new and inviting ways.
Contact your account representative today about our alternative substrate options.
Animals that act like humans or animals that act like animals…which one should we choose? DD McInnes brings us a fox who writes thoughtful compositions with Michael Drayton Writing Poly-Olbion. Or how about animals in a surreal world? Davies Babies offers the geometrical and astronomical Banyon Deer (see image above). Or how about animals doing what animals do? Kitty Throne from Lucia Heffernan might give too much information.

Leonardo da Vinci said that water is the driving force of all nature. When we browse our collection of art the images of water in so many forms stand out. Water is life and images of water in one’s home or office calms us down and takes us away for a brief moment. Meeting Point from The Incado Collection reveals the power of nature as water crashes against cliffs. And from the opposite end of the spectrum we have The Pier from Vladimir Kostka where the sea is silent and calm. Sarah Parson’s take on water is abstracted and ethereal in Water Garden – where the translucent quality of water uncovers subtle hints of life.
