April 28 – Glass Class

Again – art saves the day!

See something you like at a gallery?  If you can afford it – buy it – you never regret purchasing art!

I found the card that is framed in glass above at the Jacoby Arts Center last fall.  I didn’t know what I’d do with it – I just liked it, and, honestly, it was a bit of a “guilt purchase” – I try to support the arts locally when I can, I had just seen a free gallery show – and a card was all I could afford that day.

These several months later, one of my co-workers announced she is leaving to pursue her dream of a career in nursing.  I remembered the card – and thought it would be perfect for someone going into the “helping hands” profession.  So I made a stained glass frame for it – and I have a one-of-a-kind gift ready to share.

Often I don’t buy paintings I like because “I have no place to put it” – my walls are already crowded.    But being able to give it away, or merge it with another art form (like my stained glass frames) – gives me an excuse to listen to my heart & artist’s spirit – and support a local gallery/artist – and give something memorable – all rolled into one!  Again, art saves the day!

    Always, if it calls to you, buy it. And if you have no room on your walls like me, rotate. That’s what I do and it works.

    Oooh I agree, always trust instinct if you are called to something. What a fabulous card it is and I am loving the frames you make.

    Generous once, generous twice, for art and friendship. That’s making a little something go a long way!
