This morning after a time of being side tracked and thinking about the marketing or selling part of this art business, I opened our email and found a letter by Robert Genn. This wonderful letter emphasizes the understanding of the art world on a level that deals more with the purity of painting and leaving the "troubles of the outside world".
The letter contains wonderful words like transitory, prayerful awe, harmony, bravery, solitude, infinite, triumph, calm, rational, beautiful, sublime, and eternal. Here is a link to the letter.
Somehow I connected with his words and it brought me back from the brink of despair thinking about pricing, sizes, value, Manhattan, professional, big, collections, galleries, and city. In comparing words and the feelings one gets from the words, I guess I want to live in the world of harmony, bravery and even solitude with prayerful awe!
