Paintings, especially abstract ones can be compared to rainbows on times. They can have you mesmerised, and searching for the beginning and the end is usually part of their appeal. There’s something Magical about them, after all they brighten up the sky on gloomy days and captivate us in their presence.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have a rainbow in the sky at all times? So when we get stressed or sad we could find comfort and instantly reboot our emotional state to a calmer and positive one.
I believe paintings, especially abstract ones to be the closest thing to a rainbow. They are an investment for those rainy days where the sun just cannot quite break through to lift us.
Life seems to be getting more and more stressful. Many turn to retail therapy as a quick fix to solve their issues. We spend small amounts of money on many little things that only bring limited happiness. Wouldn’t it make more sense to spend a bit more on a luxury item? A rainbow on a canvas can provide a piece of happiness to own for a lifetime.
