Leap of Faith | Buying my Cycling Art

with No Comments

I’m always amazed.

Amazed and humbled at the faith people have in me when they buy my original cycling art online. I consider the purchase to be a huge leap of faith on the part of my patrons and I’m always very grateful. Purchasing artwork online could be a risky proposition. While it’s easy enough to buy a digital print of my work – the final product looks very close to what I can represent on the website or social media. Original work is a much bigger leap.

Buying an original artwork may not be so easy, but you do.

When someone commissions me to do a large painting, or they purchase a large painting – I’m talking sofa size here, that’s a leap of faith! The thought that you all have the faith in me, and the work, to buy a painting for thousands of dollars from a photo on your phone or laptop just blows me away! All I can say is I’m deeply moved and grateful for your show of support in my delivering the product you expect. It’s a responsibility I take very seriously as I start each new project.

It takes a very special person who can pick up the phone, have a conversation with an artist in Illinois, get a scribbled idea in an email and then say, “yeah, make that painting for me” – and yet it works! You leap, you buy, and you come back for more! Amazing.

So if you’ve ever thought maybe you could take the risk of buying art online, remember this – people are doing it everyday and I’ll hold your hand as “we” take that leap together. Like I said, I’m always amazed, humbled and very grateful. So thank you and keep buying, I’ll keep painting, we’re in this together.
