Last blog entry touched lightly on collecting. I know when a Gallery Visitor has found their dream and has to acquire it. Some actually have the hair on the back of their neck stand on end. Their heart pounds and their feet don’t move. My sentiments exactly when I discover my next art acquisition. I pay attention as this is the first step of being a collector. Second step? Ahh, thought you’d never ask. It is to commit, to obtain that artwork of our affection.
Dream. We all have the strength, patience, and passion to take the next step. We know what we want. What’s missing? What’s the second step? It is to commit. It’s easier when we recognize we are in the way. My experience with being in my own way too many times forges this into a truism.
This morning I committed to my adventure…visit all the sugar shacks serving breakfast in the area this maple sugaring season. I captured the obligatory sense of place image to share on Facebook. One capture. One image. Never look at the captured image until I am home. Acquiring some maple cream for future home breakfasts at The Sugar Barn, Norwich Lake Farm, I saw some signs. I did the opposite of my plan and captured a second image. Compose. Click. Home.
Now viewing the second image I see one sign is “DREAM.” May all your dreams come true.
P.S. These signs, hand made by Kim Tobin, are for sale. 413-667-8830
