Art has the power to transcend borders and bring people together from all corners of the world. In this blog post, I will tell you the story of my painting that travelled from Perth to Melbourne for framing in Australia, before being shipped to Washington DC, then onto Kenya, showcasing how art can connect people and cultures.
My painting, a vibrant and colourful work, depicting an abstracted idea of a bridge over blue waters, was showcased online on Bluethumb, and chosen by an Australian ex-pat who was immediately drawn to the white bridge motif, the blues and energy of the painting, which reminded her of her home town Sydney and the spectacular Sydney Harbour. So she decided to purchase it for her private collection as it reminded her of home.
The painting was carefully packed and shipped to Melbourne, where Bluethumb arranged framing, then shipping to Washington DC.
The client has since sent me photos of my painting adorning their walls where it now hangs in their home, and happened to mention that they will be moving to Kenya and my, I should say - our, painting will definitely be travelling with them.
In conclusion, the journey of this painting from Australia to Washington DC to Kenya is a testament to the power of art to connect people and cultures. It serves as a reminder that our work as artists can have a profound impact on people's well-being and that we have the responsibility to use our talents to enhance ours and others experiences. By sharing our work, we can inspire new ideas and perspectives, and create a ripple effect that can extend far beyond our borders and remind us of "home".
