“Everyone who enjoys thinks that the principal thing to the tree is the fruit, but in point of fact the principal thing to it is the seed. --Herein lies the difference between them that create and them that enjoy” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
I love special requests of my work. It validates the artwork I create is meaningful. It inspires and uplifts me.
A week ago, I received a special request from a person who purchased one of my art blocks from a vending machine. It was one of the birch tree paintings. He liked it and asked if I would make a set of 4 birch tree blocks for him. Of course, I was delighted to accept the special request. I don’t think we can have too much art. And, it’s a joy creating these little works of art. The art blocks are a unique, affordable way of collecting original works of art.
Autumn is my favorite time of year. I have a lovely view from my studio window of trees in my back yard and beyond. Although the leaves are now gone, the image and color remain in my memory. It holds special meaning for me. When I thought of the trees, the only image that persisted in my mind for this work was birches in autumn.
If I wasn’t a contributing artist for ArtOMat, I would not have known this opportunity to create something special by request. Thank you to my customer and ArtOMat.
