A long day

I was told by someone that the word size of my blog was a bit  too small, so let's make it easier to read.Now all I have to do is figure out what to write about today.
I just got back from a very long day of work at the gallery, followed by a  non optional meeting.  
Naturally, I had to top it off with a bit of tango. So the hours I was gone from home were long, but the balance of my day was acceptable.. We do what we must. We try to get some pleasure from it.For me it was making a sale of a beautiful turquoise vase similar to the one at the left. I did not even have to try to sell it,  the customer just showed up at the front desk with her trophy clutched in her hands, smiling. 
That's the really fun part about being in the gallery, and seeing  when the art work just speaks to someone and it is " theirs".You can tell how much they like it when they cannot let it go. This is a good thing. Really, it is so much more than just our salary, it is a validation that what we do is  appreciated by another person. Is it our ego? I think that is too simple. It is a meeting of  hearts and minds in regards to our vision.
 Any thoughts you'd care to share about this?

  1. Well, isn't that what art is all about? Connecting with the person viewing? I can see where that feeds not only the buyer but also the artist.
