Why Buy Art?
I just can't leave this one alone,
I have to say something before I sleep.
Art is something you behold. When you decide in your heart that it has spoken to you and you would like to acquire it...that's all there is to it. It has done it's job, it has touched someone and connected on a deeper level.
After listening to the point of feeling ill, an interview with an artist who required many questions from the "Respected Arts Journalist" to eventually help the listener to finally understand the point of his art installation, I threw up my hands in amazement! What for? Why do it? Here's my underlying point:
If you need someone to tell you how good it is and that you Should buy it, you probably shouldn't buy it. It's lost on you (and probably most other people).
Buy because you have been reached by it, you have been touched by it, you have received the final connection.
The Artists Journey

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
