One of the pitfalls of selling my art is the fact that many times I don’t get to see where my piece will live. I create a part of me and expose it to the world in the hopes that it will end up in a good home and be appreciated. I spend so much time just staring at a piece as it is being created, that I develop a very close relationship with my art.
Don’t get me wrong, I interact with the person buying it whether in person or online (and have turned offers down because of the persons vibe) but for the most part, that’s where the interaction ends. They buy the art, and I never see it again.
When I created the glow tree, I had this piece in mind for a special person that would appreciate every single deliberately molded peak of texture.
This tree represents a concept and idea that is very special to me.
“We are rooted in reality, and yet we expand and grow out towards the heavens. We are constantly expanding and growing, even when no one else can see it.”
With this piece, I was hoping this would be one of those rare occasions where the person stayed in contact during the process of receiving the art.
Every once in a while, I get to see how the piece is welcomed into the new home, and I it is always a joy.
I received a special message last night from the Alfredo Z. who purchased this piece online from me a couple weeks ago.
He had contacted me several times asking for suggestions on the size, color, and style of frame. He sent me pictures of his favorites, and I made my suggestions and that was that.
The color and texture of this piece requires the frame to be very specific as to not take away, but add to the message.
I could not have imagined how amazing the piece would look with the hardware that surrounds it.
It is stunning. Thank you.
