Paintings are happy in their new homes

I delivered two more of The Highway series paintings to the new owners yesterday, and both were so pleased, it made my day.

One has a new home overlooking Bronte Bay near Oakville, and is thrilled to have Pelee in Blue to hang as soon as she moves in. She’s starting a new chapter in her life, and something about this long path into the horizon captured her heart (as it did mine!)

Pelee in Blue was the larger painting, made from this small study, which was purchased by another artist I admire. For her, the smaller painting has a freshness and energy that she valued. Dropping off the work at her home yesterday, it was wonderful to have a tour of her other paintings; she owns many wonderful pieces. And I was proud to have my piece taking its place in her home.

A collector is scheduled to come by to see the latest work, and so I have a selection of pieces I think she will like all ready in my little sun room. Are the paintings happy to be there, instead of stored away in shelves? That is a whimsical idea, but I like it. Surely objects want to be useful and loved, just as we do.

A friend asked me why I would paint the same subject multiple times. More on that in the next post.
