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.
