No matter how long I've been making and selling art, the way people connect with my work forever mystifies me. Just like every other artist, my art is very personal and yet someone will come along and feel like it is speaking directly to them.
Jenn and her husband bought my painting, "At Least Say You'll Write", a mixed media work on paper, professionally framed. I painted it the day I found out one of my favorite bands was splitting up. They were a relatively new band, no one had really heard of them yet, so I was in touch with them directly via Facebook (anyone who knows me knows I WORSHIP music, so I tend to be a bit of a groupie). When they told me they had decided to part ways, it honestly felt like someone had died. I was so sad thinking of all the great music they'd never make and I'd never get to hear that I spent the rest of the day painting.
Jenn loved the painting right away and had her husband buy it for her for Christmas. Here's what she has to say about having "At Least Say You'll Write" in her home.
"This painting adds personality to our bare walls with its bright, cheerful colors and makes our house a home. The birds sitting and alighting on the wire remind me of our urban landscape that is full of life. The mixed media, including vintage paper, and dynamic composition add interest and energy. This original piece can't be mistaken for something mass-produced and cookie-cutter from the mall! We love it and the conversations that it starts. We can't wait to see what Anna creates next."
