This piece is called, "Amen". Take a good look and you'll understand. The right person came along less than 12 hours after I finished it and bought it. This person is a collector, they own other paintings I've produced. This blog post is about the awesome and powerful element of, "someone getting it". When a person sees a painting and connects with it, something special happens. There is a wonderful occurance. Everything comes together. It reminds me of why I paint.
When a painter uses everything they ever learned and allow their painting flow to be honest, the piece "happens" the way it should. The collector sees this, they know what's going on. It's like music on canvas. It's like grabbing the lightening. It's canned heat. It's sublime...
There are particles of real emotion in this piece. There are life experiences. There is truth. This is what art can and should do.
I'm blessed to be an artist. What a great blessing it is...
