This is the week for blogs and articles and broadcasts about how grateful we are – or should be.

 

Ok, I’ll add mine.
I’m grateful for people who want art in their lives.
Does that sound self-serving? I don’t mean it that way. Sure, I like making a living and I’m very grateful to be able to feed my kids and pay the mortgage every month (mostly) with  money generated from my work. But that’s not what I mean.
I’m grateful that people want art in their lives because that means they are willing to think. To be challenged. To see beauty in raw materials. To invest in something so original that they might look at it differently every time they see it.
It means they want more from life. That’s a world I want to live in.

About jeanevogelart

Art saves lives. That's my mantra and my motivation. My primary purpose as an artist is to inspire, entertain, make you smile, make you mad, make you think or recall a memory. I strive for work that is intimate and genuine, and sometimes whimsical. It's always more than a "pretty picture." I demand a relationship.
