I wrote this article for my website back in 2006. Since it is still fresh and relevant for today, I'm sharing it again for those who haven't read it.
WHY BUY ORIGINAL ART? By Jill Saur
You walk into a gallery or browse through an artists website, and all of a sudden, amid the host of paintings, your attention is turned to just one. As if you were the main character in a romance novel, your heart begins to race, and you find yourself swept away. Then, in the quietness of your observation, this image that has no literal voice, begins to speak to you, uplift your spirit, move your heart and make you smile.
Do you get my point? Of course you do. The number one reason to buy an original work of art is because of how much you love it and how it makes you feel. People who buy original art have a lot to smile about!
A great painting inspirits the right hemisphere of our brains, stimulating ideas, and ideas are the root of creativity. If you surround yourself with art that inspires, you will be inspired!
Studies in work environments have shown that the productivity of an employee is elevated by as much as 25% when they are exposed to original art in their everyday jobs. This doesn’t surprise me. Art that makes us feel good can uplift our moods and give us a greater sense of well-being. My patrons tell me that my art inspires them and the more they look at my work, the more they see. The greatest two compliments I get are that my paintings exude ‘joy’ and that they're displayed in a prominent place for all to enjoy.
When you buy an original painting from me you will have a one-of-a-kind creation that no one else in the world has. With the longevity of the premium quality acrylic and oil paints I use, your painting will become a family heirloom and be able to be passed down to subsequent generations.
Original art also has aesthetic value. It can either blend in with the natural décor of a room, or as many collectors prefer, it can stand out from everything else and be the focal point. Because my art is vibrant, full of life, and luminous, most of my clients purchase my art to become the focal point of a room or office.
When you buy art from local and national artists who have spent years developing their style, technique, creativity and expertise, you become the impetus that keeps the renaissance of talented contemporary artists alive. - Jill Saur - www.JillSaur.com
