What DRAWS people to ART??

It's funny how something so abstract can make you know 100%, that for whatever reason you can't explain...you love it.


I fell in love with this painting from a local young artist from around the Ottawa Area. I found her by fluke online. Her work consists of lots of asian-inspired themes (florals like my dad used to paint, but with a modern twist). Anyway, I contacted her and she's painting me something similar to this...except instead of the Chinese symbol for "Wisdom" (which is what is on the existing painting), I asked if she could paint me the symbol for "Love" because it means more to me. I would much rather be in LOVE than be WISE!!! This will be my first purchase of original artwork in my life! And it cost the same as buying a poster/print from an art store! I was contemplating buying it and giving it to Rob for his birthday which is in a few weeks...but it felt like I was cheating him out of a birthday present. Buying him something that really it's ME that wants! And considering it's my first purchase of art, I think it's only right that I buy it for ME ME ME!
