Why is Art Important?

Curiosity made my recently type the question of why is art important into a search engine. Well, there’s no lack of other blog articles about it, all with varying viewpoints. As an artist, art is important to me, because that’s how I make my living. However, I’m not that philosophical in forming an answer except for posing another question. Can you imagine a world without art?

Why Is Art Important?

That’s right. No art museums, no old master works, nothing to give a glimpse into the past, no galleries, no art fairs on a sunny weekend,  nothing on your walls to bring beauty into your life, no beautified parks with garden sculptures…. can you think of more?

How did that contemplation make you feel? Now ask yourself, why is art important, to you?

Please comment. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Moody Skies

Years ago I learned to play on the piano an old song titled “Twilight Time.” A portion of the lyrics went this way: Purple shades of night are falling, it’s twilight time…” Those words fit well for my series of moody skies for my eBay auction ending Sunday March 19th 6 PM Pacific Time or 8 PM central. The endings are staggered by 7 minutes. These 3 paintings have a minimum bargain price bid of $39.00 each.

I enjoyed so much painting the last series of sunsets and sunrises I just had to do more but this time including the lesser luminary!  I hope you enjoy them. Click on the title of the painting to go to the auction or visit my profile page on eBay. Happy bidding! Of course click the image to get a larger view!
