I am pleased to announce 'Secrets of The Fog' triptych has arrived safely to it's new home in Dallas, Texas! I was holding my breath waiting for confirmation, as Dallas has been in another Ice Storm and I hoped delivery would be successful and safe for all. There is nothing as rewarding as a client who sends a message of 'loving the paintings even more in person' than online. In honesty, it is a relief but also a moment of deep sharing of yourself with another.
When someone resonates with a work you have made, it is very personal. It is a big part of who you are as an artist to create and there is naturally a bond with your work but when someone else has a connection to it also and you can see how it effects them, it validates the energy that is actually housed inside the work, the energy you send out in the world as an artist. So wonderful when someone is deeply touched and appreciates the feeling it awakens in them. I am not adverse to people buying art to match their furnishings, I know some artists hate that but I have no judgement on why someone buys a work and to be honest I feel it belongs with them for the same reason as someone who buys a work because it speaks directly to their core but maybe they are just less conscious of the deeper connect.
I am sure the paintings do their job (energetically) regardless but when someone really 'gets it' and feels their heart flutter , it is amazing, a real high- only matched by the feeling in the studio when after weeks or sometimes even months, a painting finally comes together and all the layers make sense and you know it is complete! I have enjoyed every minute of making this triptych and also the process of getting to know my new client. I am grateful too for her patience while I had them included in the photo shoot, delaying the posting a couple of weeks. Imagine my surprise to find out I was sending the paintings to an address in the very street I lived in last year and yet had not met this lovely person. We lived only doors away from one another!
I am so pleased we have now 'met' and look forward to our new friendship growing and I'm thrilled this work is now living in a home where she will be cherished!
