when a painting finds a home


My friend Erin bought this painting and hung it in her kitchen.  Last week I had a leisurely lunch at her house with the early spring light pouring in.  It's hard not to get sentimental about the process of object making coming full circle when work is passed on, taking on a life of its own, becoming defined in completely new terms by the owner's space. Yes, selling work is thrilling.  It motivates and justifies spending so much time on art when often times there's no fiscal return.

  1. This painting is lovely. It has a domestic feeling to it. I wonder if it did before it lived in someone's home?
