when we were first talking, we discovered we were both artists. he – a painter. me – well, you already know that part. we were far apart in distance so we did not see each other or the work of the other in person. he didn’t come to any of my concerts. i didn’t go to his gallery openings. but….there is this thing called the internet.
it was with much curiosity that i sat down to view his paintings. i wondered about his style, his choice of color, the movement in his paintings, the emotion. our budding friendship would not be dependent upon whether or not i liked them, or even understood them. but i must say – in all honesty – that it was incredibly convenient to find that i LOVE his paintings. i love his style, his choice of color, the movement in his paintings, the emotion.
this painting, ICONIC, was the first large painting in his YOGA SERIES. full of grace and the expression of inner peace, ICONIC is stunningly big (54″ x 54″), a statement piece that i have no doubt will soon grace the wall of the owner who hasn’t found it yet.
anyone who has purchased an actual painting – not a print or facsimile of some sort – knows that it is a relationship that develops, that the owner and the painting find each other, that it is not merely a purchase. it is the bringing home of a piece of someone else’s heart. the hanging-on-the-wall of someone else’s heart. or, in the case of music, as i well know, the listening to of someone else’s heart.
iconic: that which can trigger emotion. yes.
