This time-honoured quote is as relevant today as it was when it was penned. When you buy the original you are purchasing a unique commentary captured by the artist. You possess a unique item – the original. Artists pour their heart and soul into their work and you have the unique opportunity to be part of their passion. You become a part of the story as you grow to love it more with each passing year. Paintings become part of the family. In that sense it lives in the heart of those who live with it.
