A Connection......

A connection . . .
What draws us to a particular piece of art? Maybe it is a memory stirred, a mood relates, or a color touches us. Does it bring joy, or is it thought-provoking? It could be a common ground, like minds meeting.
            Viewing this artwork may transport us to another world, or into a delicious daydream state. Sometimes just the sheer beauty takes our breath away!
            Whatever it is, we are drawn to it, and I believe it is for a reason. It may be due to any of the above, or an inexplicable connection that embraces us. There it is: a connection.
            When this happens, if at all possible, make that piece of art your own. It’s kind of like falling in love. It doesn’t happen every day, but when it does, it’s special.
            Perhaps, at this point, you would like to take it home, yet feel it is not in your budget. Talk to the artist, connect. Maybe an arrangement can be made to help make this union a reality. Most artists want to touch the viewer with their work, and are so pleased when this connection occurs.

            So, allow the mystery of art to speak to you and embrace it when it does. It is a connection, for whatever reason, that will enrich your life. Don’t pass it up!

I personally enjoy nostalgic paintings as it depicts the way we store and distort memory. The art of nostalgia never fails to fascinate me. In an article from Hal Mcdonald (2017), he stated that nostalgia is a largely guilt-free pleasure, offering many tangible benefits to our mental, social, and even physical well-being. Therefore, we enjoy trying to feel nostalgic over things. One of my favourite nostalgic painters is Mike Ryczek. He even mentioned that he likes to dismantle things in order to make sense of the world around him.
