All my life, I have wanted to buy art that caught my eye and stole my heart, but most of it has been too expensive for my budget. This was the perfect lesson in delaying gratification and paying over time to get a piece I love from an artist I love. If you are an artist, consider selling your work using this kind of system. It makes it possible for those of us with champagne tastes and beer budgets to consider buying a piece of art.
This piece reminds me of the last summer day I spent with my mother, in August 2010, picking blueberries at a farm in Tennessee. It was her favorite fruit. When I look at this piece, I remember the warm sunshine, the high green bushes, and how the berries, plump and dusty with bloom, rolled right off the branches with the slightest touch, and fell into our buckets with a pleasing plunk. We only picked for an hour and our buckets were full.
