Celebrate

"Celebrate"

Have you ever wondered why people buy art? Carrie Jacobson, of The Accidental Artist writes about her thoughts on how art can change one's life.
"If the art is good, it grows with you, and continues to take you places."
I agree and hope that my collectors feel the same. I love it when someone looks at my paintings and tells me if makes them look again and again finding new colors, new strokes, new textures, new stories each time they look.
I'm honored too.
Check out Carrie's blog and leave her a comment and tell her "hey!"

It's so cool to be quoted. Thanks!

On Tuesday, I was finalizing the show I have in NY state, and classes were going on around me in the school/gallery. One of the teachers, an artist whose work I admire, was thinking about buying one of my paintings. She bought one last year, too, and honestly, feeling guilty that I've not had $$ to buy one in return, I tried (a little) to talk her out of it. But she said she's been having a tough time lately, and my paintings look the way she wants to feel. What a compliment! I've been thinking so much about what art does, inside a life.
