Love Collecting Art, Valentines Inspiration!

Love Collecting Art, Valentines Inspiration!

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart. (Maya Angelou)

This is such a beautiful quote and applies so well to the visual arts. If art can captivate someone for long enough that they see it and connect, its a honor for me as an artist. For each piece is created with a mix of love, curiosity, skill, stamina. A painting can fail or be successful, give pleasure or be lackluster.

The search for the collector, is the pursuit… the falling, the love affair. We build a knowledge of what we love through art and its so subjective, its what makes the world go round.

Can I afford it …. or am I worth it!?

Collecting at its best is very far from mere acquisitiveness; it may become one of the most humanistic of occupations, seeking to illustrate by the assembling of significant reliques, the march of the human spirit in its quest for beauty… (Arthur Davison Ficke)
