Touch of Silence
I have always believed that every piece I paint is painted specifically for "someone" even if I haven't met them yet. This painting confirmed that belief when a beautiful young man of 14 walked in the gallery fell in love with this one (not knowing the name of it) and his Dad bought it for him. I talked with him and asked him why he chose it. He made a forward swooshing motion with his hands as if he were making ocean waves. I asked his Dad what he meant he said it means beautiful silence. He was deaf! Needles to say I fell in love with that family and emotions made my heart swell to tears. This is my entire reason for painting.
Thank you Brandon! From your touch of silence to mine!
