"Marie, I wanted to thank you for the painting 'Protector'...I admire it going to bed and waking up each morning and when I have my quiet time reading. I catch myself smiling at her. I absolutely love that piece. It has been giving me lots of JOY!"
Toni, Chicago collector
noun 1.the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or
satisfying; keen pleasure; elation
"Experiencing art decreases stress levels."
"A study from the University of Westminster found that participants' stress levels decreased after a lunchtime visit to an art gallery reducing cortisol levels." Arts.Mic
I would like to venture to say it brought them joy as well.
A common thought expressed by collectors of my art is that it quiets them and somehow connects with them emotionally. It is the highest compliment that they could give me.
Celebration of Life, Expression of love
Commissioned Art can be a very special gift. It can be an expression of LOVE!
" Ahh, my beautiful Madeleine"
This was stated by Madeleine's father as he was looking at her portrait.
Madeleine is no longer three years old, but that precious age will always be there,
captured in a special forever way!
Still, years later, feelings of love and tenderness rush in, remembering her then.
My collectors tell me that a portrait celebrates and honors their child in a special way. It helps deepen their relationships with their children.
A child may not fully understand the depth of love his or her parent feels, but their portrait is a way to say "I love you" that endures. It truly is an expression of Love.
