art or food?
One(hah!) more question.
As an artist who has spent many a craft fair watching customers hem and haw, decide not to buy an artpiece(something that could add beauty and inspiration to their lives for years to come) and then wander by carelessly stuffing their faces with overpriced fairfood (that lasts only as long as the indigestion)I have often wondered:
1. What do you need to see in an artwork that would impell you to choose it over yummies for your tummy?
So many people have come into my booth and just given me so much admiration and appreciation. It's a wonderful feeling and I'm glad that my art speaks to folks, but few are those who actually see the beauty and make the choice to spend their money and take it home with them. Those precious few always make my day.
2. What kind of art would you actually part with your hard-earned dollars for?
3. What do you want art to do for you?
I put a lot of my heart, soul, emotions and experiences into my sculptures, they kind of tell my story, but I like to let people experience them for themselves and make up their own stories. It's always fun for me to see people find themselves in my creations.
4. Do you like to be told about an artwork, or do you like it to be open to your own interpretation?
OK, that's definately enough, before my one more question turns into ten. I guess I'd better go back and number 'em for ya.
