The Magic Hour
Oil on Linen
My painting "The Magic Hour" sold last weekend. I have several paintings in a new gallery in Forest Park, Illinois, not far from Chicago. The owner told me that foot traffic had not been good this summer. Maybe because of the economy, heat, or other factors.
Suddenly this painting was bought by someone who just had to have it. Which leaves me wondering ... what is it about certain paintings that compel people to buy them?
I have certainly purchased my share of paintings over the years. Usually there is something about it that I relate to very strongly. I just have to have it. I guess what I'm wondering is what that certain something is about my own paintings. Are your collectors really kindred spirits?
