The Life of a Painter

There is a painter. He always loved painting from his childhood. When he became 20 years old, he told his father that he wanted to be a painter. His father opposed his decision, and did not try to listen to him. His father said if he wants to be a painter, he will have to leave the home. So he left. He could rent a small apartment with his savings. Then he doesn’t have any money. He started part-time jobs in restaurant and store to keep on painting. His passion never run away. He published his paintings, but no one cared in the beginning.

His first painting is submitted to auction house. Anonymous buyer bought his painting with $30,000. He was surprised and happy that someone recognized the value of his artworks. He wanted to know who the buyer is, but he could not find him. This was spread to all buyers and they got interested in his paintings. More people tried to buy his paintings as well believing it has something.

Crying

A girl informed her boyfriend that she doesn’t want to see him anymore. She wants to end relationship because she is sick of him. He could not stop flowing tears and about to cry out loud standing in front of her.

She told her friends later that it was his best looking moment she has ever seen. She fell in love with him again.

You Decide the Price of Artist’s Artworks

Why is art so expensive? Who decide the price? Art dealers? Gallery owners? Or Artists themselves? When we talk about artistic value, one piece of art could mean a lot to someone and nothing to others. The price of artworks not only get affected by artist’s reputation, but also size, condition, and prices of similar pieces. Importantly, supply and demand strictly apply in pricing. If the artists no longer live, value of scarcity rise higher. Buying art is now considered as an investment, instead of true passion for the art. Many physical galleries are closing because they can’t keep the finances sustainable. On the other hand, rich people increase the prices of artworks, pushing up few big galleries and few big auction houses. With this situation being made, young and potential artists do not get many opportunities to be seen.

Art industry has become a game only for rich people. I believe that artworks and professional artists should be valued with money. But it doesn’t have to be by buyers. Many growing artists want to showcase their artworks to reach out few buyers. However, if numerous number of patrons can build the value of artists’ price together, it will be a big impact that change art industry. What artworks deserve to be the highest price? The artworks containing real value will be newly recognized to the world. Artists can exhibit their artworks in Feelimn online gallery, and patrons can give patronages to the artworks. Find artworks that you love in each emotion categories. Feel the artworks artists captured in their adventures.

Patron

Patron is a person who gives financial support in activity. I acknowledge massive efforts of artists to create painting. They have a species of fear that their fates are in their own hands, but that their hands are weak. Making art reveals artists themselves in every work between what they think they should be, and what they fear they might be. If they even think artworks should be perfect, they won’t tolerate making mistakes which they become convinced that they cannot make perfect artwork. As mistakes go on, they will quit. Audiences enjoy the finished product, and they don’t have much interest in the process. Some artists can sell their artworks, but most artist can’t sell it. Numerous number of artists send their artworks to art agency to sell it. I wonder how many artworks will be chosen to get a chance to sell it.

Many young artists are striving to find the way to earn money with their skills. I want to give artists the chance to find a patron who financially support their art making in Feelimn online gallery. Artists should be a hunter to find the subject to give the entertaining inspiration to their patrons. As time goes by, more people will contribute to building value of artworks with patronages. Artists will create artworks that deserve to be recognized by the world. People will decide it. Patrons can leave their name on each artwork’s rank of patronage. Rich people might give big patronage on artwork if they believe it deserves it, or for a reason. Will you be an artist, painter, illustrator who patrons are proud of you?

A Place of Reference

When I invite artists to my website through email, they reply me back with similar responses. They say “It’s a very interesting project. I will think how to collaborate with it”. I really appreciate their replies. I’m happy waiting for their artworks to be displayed in Feelimn online gallery soon because I know they will choose Feelimn. It is opportunity for them to reach out potential patrons who would support their art making. Each patronage will be divided to 85:15, which 85% go for the artists. And 15% go for gallery.

When an artist called Feelimn as a place of reference, I thought it is just right word to describe the characteristic of Feelimn. Whatever artists choose categories out of 8 options such as joy, sadness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise, circumstantial, and a blend of 2 or more, it will be a moment. It is not a news broadcast, but recording of important moments to someone, or even more people. Our imagination capture much bigger images than what camera does. We will be able to see what artists saw. The reason why that moment was captured doesn’t have to be heavy because we appreciate the artwork itself just like watching movie. We want to enjoy the artworks, and imagine the people and situation with curiousity. Thomas Eakins painted the doctor who is in the middle of surgery. It is called “The Gross Clinic”. Many young medical students would have dreamed of becoming a doctor like him after watching this painting.
