What intimate connection is the art piece having with me internally either emotionally, intellectually, spiritually or all of the above?
When we look at a piece of art that stops us in our tracks there is an intimate connection whether we know it or not. It might be the harmony of colors that stirs an emotion in us, a story in that painting that connects with our own experience or a message that we align with.
What value has someone put into this art piece with their time, their soul, the life experiences and how does that translate to my own appreciation?
When it comes to acquiring art there are many choices to pick from. We appreciate and honor skill and soul poured into an artwork that aims to connect with more than just the sofa colors.
Will I be able to transfer this valuable piece to someone or some organization that I care about and what legacy do I leave behind by the type of art I acquired?
