I always share this sentence with potential clients, and viewers of my work. No, you don’t have to know the ” how’s” and the “why’s” of any piece of artwork. All that you truly need to know is that you have fallen in love with it. Sometimes art collectors fall in love with works because of meeting the artist & learning about the process of the painting, as well as what the inspiration was. I am here to tell you though, that with me, not every single painting has a story. As I have said before, I am guided with my artwork and sometimes just have no explanation as to how it comes together.
When purchasing artwork, trust your gut and your heart (not always your designer). You are the one who has to live with the artwork, not them. Artwork should speak to you, it should inspire you, and every time you look at it, you should fall in love again and again.
