When buying art ...


"... When you are buying from an independent artist, you are buying more than just a painting, a novel or a song.  You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures.  You are buying days, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy.  You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, the dog.  You aren’t buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, a part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life.  Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all the above worth the fear and doubt; something that puts life into the living..."
